Agatha Christie: Poirot (TV Series 1989– ) Poster

Trivia

In preparation for the role, David Suchet read every single book and short story Poirot appears in, making notes about the character.
Before playing Poirot, David Suchet played Chief Inspector Japp opposite Peter Ustinov as Hercule Poirot in Thirteen at Dinner (1985).
The hotel where "Evil Under the Sun" was filmed is the one where Agatha Christie wrote the book "Evil Under the Sun".
As of 2013, the entire Poirot canon written by Agatha Christie has been filmed for this series, with The Lemesurier Inheritance incorporated into Labours of Hercules, and Suchet giving a reading of the only stage play, Black Coffee for The Agatha Christie Theatre Company.
To simulate the overweight physique of Hercule Poirot, David Suchet, who is much slimmer, wore body padding. He also wore wing collars to make his neck appear fatter.
In addition to paddings, Suchet would initially trim the top of his hair to appear more balding (n later years his hair had thinned naturally), except in "The Mysterious Affair at Styles", which chronicles Poirot's first case in England where he's supposed to be considerably younger.
