David Suchet Interview
Hercule Poirot star David Suchet put on his spats and waxed mustache (so to speak) to answer questions from MASTERPIECE's Facebook, Twitter, and discussion group fans about his 21-year career as Hercule Poirot, "the world's greatest detective." Suchet spoke with Masterpiece's Richard Maurer in June, 2010, from London.
Whether he's on holiday abroad, taking a countryside break or simply going about his business near his central London home, Poirot finds himself exercising his "little grey cells" by helping police investigate crimes and murders, whether they ask for his help or not.
In "Third Girl," a demon-haunted heiress is convinced she has committed murder, but Poirot believes she is innocent. Eccentric crime novelist Ariadne Oliver (Zoë Wanamaker, “Gormenghast”) helps the great sleuth crack the case.
