Storyline

Lady Edgware, the well-known stage actress Jane Wilkinson, has a dilemma in that her husband has consistently refused to give her a divorce. She asks Hercule Poirot to visit the man to see if there is any possibility of convincing him. Lord Edgware is nothing short of nasty, treating all those around him very badly. When he is found dead, there is no great surprise, but there certainly are a good number of suspects. The police believe Lady Edgware to be the culprit, but she has a cast-iron alibi, having attended a private dinner over the time her husband was killed. There is also the man's nephew, who would inherit his fortune, and his personal assistant, whom he treated very badly; and then there is the family butler, who clearly has his own interests at heart.

User Reviews

 
Excellent adaptation of one of Agatha Christie's best novels
24 June 2000 | by (Nottinghamshire, England) – See all my reviews

The scenery and costumes in this production are stunning, and the acting, especially by David Suchet as Poirot, is excellent. This version remains very faithful to the novel, and pays great attention to detail. However, one criticism would be the omission of the Duke of Merton's mother, who is an excellent character and should have been included. That aside, this is a wonderful piece of television for mystery fans and nostalgia lovers to relax with.
