If Hercule Poirot isn’t available, who better than David Suchet to investigate the colorful and mysterious life of Agatha Christie? This Sunday, after Miss Marple on Masterpiece Mystery most Public Television stations will air The Mystery of Agatha Christie, a documentary on her life and work. (Check your local listings for dates and times in your area.)
The description says:
Suchet’s journey takes him to the places Christie lived and the landscapes that inspired her… He explores the close links between Christie’s extraordinary life and her work and discovers what it was about the woman from a small seaside town that allowed her to become the best-selling murder mystery writer in history.
Stops include Blackpool Sands, one of Dame Agatha’s favorite spots for relaxation; and the Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate, her hiding place during her mysterious disappearance in December 1926.
Set “The Clocks.” This sounds like “Appointment (with Death)” television it would be a “(Three Act) Tragedy” to miss.
