Hercule Poirot is not merely a detective. He is THE detective.
Just ask the millions of fans who made him the most watched sleuth in the history of PBS Mystery! Series and a hit all over again on A&E. David Suchet plays the meticulous Belgian in these three stories based on the fiction of Dame Agatha Christie, the mother of the modern mystery. Using only his "little grey cells" and the aid of the affable Capt. Hastings (Hugh Fraser), Poirot makes quick and exceptionally neat work of the most serpentine cases. Set in elegant 1930s England, the series also stars Phillip Jackson as Chief Inspector Japp, and Pauline Moran as Miss Lemon.
