Storyline

While spending the weekend at his cottage outside London, Hercule Poirot is invited to dinner by Sir Henry and Lady Angkatell. Leaving immediately after dinner, he returns the next day to find that a weekend guest, John Christo, has been shot dead. There is any number of suspects: his former lover, Veronica Cray whom he had not seen for 12 years but suddenly turned up at a nearby cottage; his wife, Gerda who was deeply hurt by his womanizing; his current mistress Henrietta Savernake; Midge Hardcastle, who was very much in love with him, but whom he constantly ignored; and Edward Angkatell, who was in love with Midge. What Poirot finds however is that the evidence equally implicates everyone just a little too equally for it all to be just by chance. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

When Henrietta doodles, she always sketches a stylized tree that she calls Yggdrasil. In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil is a giant ash tree that represents Viking cosmology, with the branches standing for different parallel worlds. "Heaven" is at the top and Hel is at the bottom. The world we experience is on one of the middle branches. See more »

great adaptation

Poirot travels for what was to be an idyllic, lovely weekend in the country and walks into murder in "The Hollow," from the ninth season of Poirot. While relaxing at his country cottage, neighbors, Sir Henry and Lady Angkatell, invite him to dinner. Poirot partakes of the meal but leaves shortly after.

The next day he visits and learns that one of their weekend guest, John Christo, has been found dead. As usual there is no dearth of suspects. His old girlfriend, actress Veronica Cray, is staying nearby. They had not seen one another in 12 years when she shows up at the Angkatell home to borrow matches, and John walks her home, leaving behind his wife Gerda and mistress Henrietta. Two more suspects.

Another woman, Midge Hardcastle, was in love with Christo, but he pays no attention to her. Edward Angkatell is in love with Midge, but she pines for John.

Unfortunately, when Poirot investigates, he finds that the evidence points to each of the above suspects in some manner.

Excellent story, absorbing and entertaining, with Sara Miles as Lady Angkatell and Edward Fox as the butler nearly stealing the show with their colorful performances. Edward Hardwicke, Jeremy Brett's Watson, is on hand as well as Henry.

Highly recommended.
