"DUMB WITNESS" (1996) Review

There is a belief among fans of the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" series that the episodes and televisión cine that aired between 1989 and 2001 - ones that featured Arthur Hastings, Chief Inspector Japp and Miss limón - were más faithful adaptations of Agatha Christie's novels that the más reciente ones that have aired since 2003. I do not know if I agree with this opinion, especially after viewing the 1996 televisión movie, "DUMB WITNESS".

Screenwriter Douglas Watkinson's script más o less remained faithful to the 1937 novel's main narrative. Surrounded por grasping...

"PERIL AT END HOUSE" (1990) Review

I just realized something. I have never read Agatha Christie's 1932 novel, "Peril at End House". I find this ironic, considering that I have seen the 1990 televisión movie adaptation of this novel at least three o four times. One of these days, I will get around to lectura Christie's novel and comparing it to the televisión adaptation. Right now, I am going to focus on the latter.

Directed por Renny Rye and adapted por Clive Exton, "PERIL AT END HOUSE" is the first full-length televisión movie aired on "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT". It is also about Belgian-born...

"HICKORY DICKORY DOCK" (1995) Review

Every once in a while, Agatha Christie wrote a novel in which she used a nursery rhyme as its title. This turned out to be the case for her 1955 novel, "Hickory Dickory Dock". Forty years after its publication, ITV aired an adaptation of the novel for its series, "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT".

"HICKORY DICKORY DOCK" began with a rash of thefts committed at a student hostel in 1936 London. Since her sister is the hostel's warden, Miss limón recruits her boss, Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, to investigate what appears to be a case of kleptomania. It does not...

"HERCULE POIROT'S CHRISTMAS" (1994) Review

I have been a fan of Agatha Christie's 1938 novel, "Hercule Poirot's Christmas" aka "A Holiday for Murder" for years - ever since I was in my early adolescence. When I learned that the producers of the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" series aired its adaptation of it back in 1994, I looked adelante, hacia adelante to watching it.

Written as a "locked room" mystery, "HERCULE POIROT'S CHRISTMAS" focused on Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot's investigation of the murder of Simeon Lee, a tyrannical patriarch of a wealthy family. The mean-spirited Lee, who had made his fortune in...

"LORD EDGEWARE DIES" (2000) Review

The worlds of Britain's upper-crust and artists mingled in Agatha Christie's 1933 novel called "Lord Edgeware Dies aka Thirteen at Dinner". There have been at least three movie and one radio adaptations of the novel in the past seven to eight decades. The most reciente was a 100 minuto televisión adaptation that aired in 2000 on the ITV series, "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT".

In "LORD EDGEWARE DIES", Belgian-born detective Hercule Poirot is approached por celebrated stage actress, Jane Wilkinson aka Baroness Edgeware, to approach her rather unpleasant husband on the...

"MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA" (2001) Review

One can categorize the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" televisión cine into two categories. The ones made between 1989 and 2001, featured the supporting characters Captain Arthur Hasting, Miss limón (Hercule Poirot), and Chief Inspector Japp. The ones made post-2001 sporadically featured the mystery writer, Adriande Oliver. The very last televisión movie that featured Poirot's close friend, Hastings, turned out to be 2001's "MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA".

Based upon Agatha Christie's 1936 novel, "MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA" told of Hercule Poirot's investigation into the...
