Everyone’s favorite Belgian super sleuth Hercule Poirot is back for one more season of solving! David Suchet (Henry VIII, The Way We Live Now) returns to this signature role for two new mysteries – “The Big Four” and “Dead Man’s Folly” – based on the novels by Agatha Christie.

 

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 gray cells” by helping police investigate crimes and murders, whether they ask for his help or not. Here’s a little more information about both of the new episodes…
