Recovering from a sudden collapse, Poirot finds little comfort in doctor's orders confining him to a strict regimen at an island health resort with Captain Hastings. However, better medicine is to be found in the murder of another guest, a famous film actress, and a long list of suspects. Written by

During the flashback of Hastings reading the telegram received by Arlena Stuart, he says "Send the money now or you will lose a great deal", but the word "now" does not appear in the typed telegram shown on screen. See more »

I demand at once a second opinion! Hercule Poirot, he is not obese!
'Medically obese,' Mr. Poirot; it's not quite the same thing.

David Suchet makes a perfect Hercule Poirot. He has just the right level of doggedness and prissiness. This is the Agatha Christie classic (made into a rather ordinary film with Peter Ustinov) in which Poirot has to solve the murder of an actress on a holiday island (the setting this time in an island off the coast of Britain) and literally everyone on the island has a motive for murder. The key to the plot is all in the timing. This is Poirot perfect and lots of good fun.
