Airs Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 10 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: David Suchet as Hercule Poirot and Zoë Wanamaker as Ariadne Oliver in MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! "Poirot X: Third Girl." A demon-haunted heiress is convinced she has committed murder, but Poirot believes she is innocent. Eccentric crime novelist Ariadne Oliver helps the great sleuth crack the case.

David Suchet ("Henry VIII," "The Way We Live Now") stars as suave Belgian super sleuth Hercule Poirot in these new mysteries based on the novels by Agatha Christie.

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.

This program originally aired in 2010.
