Long-running and much loved detective series following the murder mystery cases of eccentric Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. Watch on ITV Player
Agatha Christie’s Poirot is based on the author’s short stories and novels, portraying the bumbling, sometimes impatient, Belgian private detective as he solves crimes and mysteries on behalf of wealthy, clients.
Set in London from the 1920s through to the 1970s, Hercule Poirot (David Suchet) and his sidekick Captain Hastings (Hugh Fraser) tackle murder cases using conventional, clue-based methods, favouring what Poirot refers to as the ‘little grey cells’ of the mind to find suspects and reach convictions.
Poirot is at times described as selfish and pompous, with pedantic mannerisms reflecting his love of order, method and symmetry. Somewhat perplexed by the English sense of humour, his sense of being a foreigner in England is apparent, to quietly amusing effect.
Sporting an iconic waxed moustache, a short round body and thinning dark hair, Poirot is certainly visually distinctive. His dress sense remains unchanged throughout his lifetime, leaving him somewhat outdated in his later years.
Poirot is employed by the wealthier classes to solve mysteries involving theft, espionage and in most cases, murder. As each series develops the historical backdrop reflects key moments in time, the styles and concerns of the decades.
David Suchet’s portrayal of Poirot has long been hailed as the most accurate and precise of all depictions – running since 1989, this year is to be Suchet’s last as the iconic detective, after which he will be hanging up the moustache for good.
