David Suchet ("Henry VIII," THE WAY WE LIVE NOW) stars as suave Belgian super sleuth Hercule Poirot in "Murder On The Orient Express."

Suchet leads an all-star international cast in this new adaptation of Agatha Christie's most popular novel.

Securing a last-minute ticket on the Orient Express from Istanbul to London, Poirot finds himself among a host of eclectic fellow passengers.

When the train becomes caught in a snowdrift and a passenger is found brutally murdered mid-voyage, the famous Belgian detective is called upon to investigate the crime and find the culprit.

Dame Eileen Atkins (CRANFORD), Hugh Bonneville ("Miss Austen Regrets") and David Morrissey ("Sense and Sensibility") guest star.
