Poirot: The End is Near


David Suchet reprises his role as the legendary, world famous Belgian detective, Poirot, for the very last time.

His return to the screen marks the very end of Agatha Christie’s Poirot, which will finish in the form of four films. The Big Four forms part of the thirteenth and final series, which includes Dead Man’s Folly, The Labours of Hercules and Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case.

David Suchet has worn the moustachioed Belgian sleuth's polished spats very successfully since 1988 when he accepted the role. His first film, The Adventure of the Clapham Cook, was broadcast on January 8 1989.

The first film from this final series Elephants Can Remember was broadcast in June and attracted a consolidated audience of 5.7 million viewers and a 23% share.

Agatha Christie's Poirot: The Big Four broadcasts Wednesday 23 October at 8pm on ITV
