David Suchet as Agatha Christie's True Hercule Poirot
David Suchet, the British actor who so convincingly played Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot, deserves a standing ovation!!!
For 25 years and a total of 70 episodes (1989-2013), David Suchet delighted Agatha Christie fans with his very convincing and expert portrayal of Hercule Poirot; the unsmiling, uptight, staunch Catholic, Belgian detective with a stiff upper lip, who you knew was really angry whenever he raised his voice and shouted with trembling rage!
We also knew him by his short busy steps, the gentlemanly tipping of his hat, a cane in his right hand and his left arm held firmly behind his back, his very precise stopwatch, him peering through his 19th century pince-nez with magnifying glass in one hand and his very faint 'superior' smile that usually disappeared as quickly as it had made its appearance.
This is one of MY favourites!
Justice MUST be served!
Oh…and who can forget his famous one word exclamation – ‘WHAT!’ (it sounded more like ‘vwat’ when he said it) - when he couldn’t believe what he was hearing. That’s Agatha Christie’s charming Hercule Poirot.
Poirot doesn’t want you to like him and he doesn’t care for that matter! Solving the mystery and letting justice be served are his chief concerns. Take it or leave it! There are no gray areas with Hercule Poirot. Something is either right or it is wrong! If you watched most or all of the episodes, you may even have been shocked at times with his very rigid determination to have justice served at all costs.
At no point in time will you feel like hugging Poirot, unlike Monk for example (who won't allow it for a different reason - because he's afraid of germs), because he’s very stand offish. Nor can you be found ‘monkeying around’; his raised eyebrows will wipe that grin right off your face. But you’ll definitely admire and respect him for his finely tuned crime solving skills.
For those of you like me, who love the TV series but also want to absorb every miniscule juicy detail that the TV series can’t capture because of time, here’s a volume that contains ALL of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot short stories.
This episode is part of the FINAL 5 episodes.
What's INSIDE this Collection!
If you’ve read any of Agatha Christie’s riveting Poirot novels before watching the TV series or DVD episodes, you’ll really admire the fact that David Suchet has so perfectly inhabited and revealed to the world the true essence of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot. (And to think his older brother told him to stay far away from playing this role!)
I take the liberty of calling it a Masterpiece Classic because it has run on for 25 years in a total of 70 magnificent episodes that have been enjoyed by millions around the globe!
This collection contains the following 12 Agatha Christie feature-length Hercule Poirot films starring the beloved David Suchet: The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd
Lord Edgware Dies, Murder In Mesopotamia, Evil Under The Sun, Death On The Nile, Sad Cypress, The Hollow, Five Little Pigs, The Mystery Of The Blue Train, Taken At The Flood, After The Funeral and Cards On The Table

The Monogram Murders is the title of the NEW Hercule Poirot Mystery Series written by bestselling British poet and novelist Sophie Hannah which was scheduled to be published in 28 languages across 50 territories worldwide on September 8, 2014.
It is being “Written with the full backing of [Agatha] Christie's family, so I don’t think Agatha Christie fans have anything to fear but we’ll have to read it until a Hercule Poirot as capable as David Suchet steps forward for a TV series.
David Suchet may have said goodbye to us but it looks like Hercule Poirot will live on!
Here it is! HOT!!! HOT!!! HOT!!!
