Storyline

While on their honeymoon in Egypt, newlyweds Simon Doyle and Linett Ridgeway are constantly harassed by Simon's ex-fiancée Jackie De Bellefort who feels her ex-best friend has stolen the love of her life. A holidaying Hercules Poirot counsels Jackie to put an end to her antics, fearing that all of this can only end in tragedy. When one of the passengers is killed while on a cruise down the Nile, Poirot must sift through an odd assortment of passengers, all of whom may have something to hide. There is Linett's financial advisor from the US, her French maid who clearly has something to hide, the Austrian doctor who keeps mostly to himself and the left leaning philosopher who despises the rich.

1 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

David Suchet returns to the small screen as Agatha Christies, Hercule Poirot, in a dramatically glamorised version of Death On The Nile.

Following her betrayal to her friend Jacqueline De Bellefort (Emma Malin). Linnet Ridgeway Doyle (Emily Blunt) a beautiful young American heiress, and the husband she entranced, honeymoon in Egypt, closely followed by a devastated Jacqueline, hell bent on reclaiming the love she and Linnets new husband Simon (JJ Feild) used to have. When Linnet is found shot dead in her cabin, aboard a luxury cruise liner, there is no shortage of suspects. Her husband who stands to gain her fortune. Jacqueline, for the betrayal Linnet did to her when they were friends. Andrew Pennington, (David Soul) the American trustee who found himself in a spot of bother upon Linnets sudden marriage. And the mysterious passenger whose father was ruined by Linnets fathers irresponsibleness at the stock market.

As the clues begin to unfurl, Poirot discovers that nearly everyone aboard the liner have secrets to hide. Colonel Race (James Fox) replaces Captain Hastings as Poirots crime busting partner. As they close in two more murders the reason behind Linnets murder becomes all the more important to solve. With an all star cast including Alistair McKenzie, Barbara Flynn, Zoe Telford, Daisy Donovan, and Frances De La Tour. Death On The Nile is truly a magical rework. With beautiful scenery and enchanting views over the Pyramids and Deserts, you can enjoy the beauty of Egypt without leaving the country.
