Chorion "is a leading global media company that owns, manages and develops quality family entertainment brands with worldwide appeal." 
Lord Alli "in his 20s he embarked on a love affair with Miss Marple. He was a crime story fanatic by the time Chorion's then chairman, William Astor, came knocking with a board position in 2002 just as the company's rights arm was demerging from its nightclubs business." 
In 2002, "Nick Tamblyn resigned as executive chairman of Chorion, the business with rights to Noddy. William Astor was made non-executive chairman and Waheed Ali non-executive deputy chairman." 
In August 2011 "Labour peer Alli and William Astor, the deputy chairman of the Agatha Christie rights owner, both tendered their resignations last night."
