** The Russian adaptation leaves out [[spoiler:Wargrave's]] obsession with murder and paints him as more of a vigilante who got fed up with [[spoiler:the corrupt judicial system and decided to stage a "perfect trial": "No two-faced [[AmoralAttorney sell-outs of lawyers]], no ridiculous capes or wigs -- just the judge face to face with the accused, and the criminal with his executioner."]] He never mentions his terminal illness either, so his decision to kill himself can be seen as a conscious act of self-execution, [[spoiler:since in the end he ''is'' a mass murderer, and "the greatest judge" like himself would never let such a thing go.]]

** The 2015 film mentions Miss Brent missing a ball of twine. In the book, [[spoiler:Wargrave uses the twine to pull the gun away after he shoots himself, ensuring that his corpse will look the way it did when he first faked his death]]; in the film [[spoiler:he shoots himself in the throat, relying on the gun's recoil to push it to the other end of the table]].



* BloodierAndGorier: The 2015 BBC adaptation in ''spades'' - not only are the deaths more bloody, but several characters have hallucinations and dreams that expose their crimes in gruesome detail, particularly [[spoiler: Armstrong's nightmare]].

* MindRape: Every single victim (except for Anthony Marston, who is such a narcissist that he can't understand he did anything wrong and, as such, [[AssholeVictim is chosen as the first to die) goes through a mild version of this thanks to U.N. Owen. The one who gets the worst of it is Vera Claythorne.
