Storyline

Poirot pays what appears to be a routine visit to Dr. Morley, his dentist, but shortly after he leaves the clinic, the doctor is found dead with a gunshot wound to his temple, an apparent suicide. Poirot suspects foul play, and all those who entered the doctor's offices after Poirot left are suspect. They include Alaistair Blunt, a prominent and very influential bank director, Frank Carter, a young fascist thug with a personal grudge against Morley, Mr. Amberiotis, an enigmatic recent arrival from India suffering from a toothache, and Mabelle Sainsbury-Seale, a charity worker also recently returned from India. When Amberiotis is found dead in his hotel room from an overdose of Novocaine and Sainsbury-Seale disappears, Poirot rightly expands his list of suspects and connects the crime to events that occurred in India 12 years earlier.

Gave me nightmares when I first saw it
24 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One, Two Buckle My Shoe was a solid adaptation of a very complicated book. It is absolutely true, the plot is very convoluted and the character of Jane Olivera was underused. And I wasn't sure what the scenes in India had to do with the original story; then again it has been a year and a half ago since I read the book. As usual, the look of the adaptation is superb, beautifully shot with splendid period detail. The music was so haunting, and scenes like the beginning and when Sainsbury Seale's foot is seen poking out from the hamper gave me nightmares when I first saw it, and still does. David Suchet gives yet another impeccable performance as Poirot, and he is perfectly matched by Hugh Fraser, Phillip Jackson and Pauline Moran. The other supporting performances ranged from acceptable to very good, Christopher Ecceleston giving the most impressive supporting contribution, but they weren't as good as Suchet, who was by far the best thing of the adaptation. The final solution while very long was interesting. All in all, definitely worth the watch. 7.5/10 Bethany Cox
