Does Poirot look a bit pleased with himself? He usually does, but perhaps especially since, via UK Telly Surfer, we learn that ITV has commissioned another 5 Poirot adventures, Labours of Hercules, Dead Man’s Folly, The Big Four, Elephants Can Remember, and Curtain. Actor David Suchet, who epitomizes the role of Agatha Christie’s creation for many of us, has said that he’d like to film all of the stories featuring the Belgian detective. Correct us if required, but that’s 33 novels and 51 short stories, and this next set will complete Suchet’s journey through Poirot’s bibliography.
But don’t worry, Miss Marple fans, because they’ve also signed up to film 3 more of her adventures, starring Julia McKenzie, next year, to include A Caribbean Mystery, Endless Night, and The Seven Dials Mystery.
We have to believe once the episodes exist, it’s only a matter of time before they air here, n’est-ce pas?
