Belgian detective Hercule Poirot's "little grey cells" are hard at work again in Series XI of Hercule Poirot on MASTERPIECE.
Clues, clocks and cocktails abound in the trio of episodes featured in the 2011 season — "The Clocks" (repeats March 11, 2018 at 8 p.m.), "Hallowe'en Party" (repeats March 11, 2018 at 9:30 p.m.) and "Three Act Tragedy" (repeats March 18, 2018 at 9:30 p.m.).
David Suchet revisits his signature role as Agatha Christie's super sleuth who, with an expertly twirled mustache and a theatrical flair, solves murders with penetrating perception and no small amount of self-regard.
On this episode...
"I saw a murder once...I did! I did!" boasts a clumsy, disliked girl at a Halloween party.
For this, she is ridiculed and dismissed. But before the party's end, she is dead, snuffed out in an apple-bobbing tub.
Party guest Ariadne Oliver — never again to consume another apple — summons her old friend Hercule Poirot for help and the gallant sleuth is only too happy to oblige.
With the dubious help of the grisly old village witch and the wildly speculative mystery writer Oliver, Poirot must investigate old sins and discover the connections between a years-old stabbing, a Russian au pair, and a forgery to unmask a dangerous killer, all before another corpse surfaces.
This program originally aired in 2011.
