One of the best episodes of Poirot (and they are all excellent)
11 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode of the splendid "Poirot" series stands out for having a good deal more humour than most of the others. Poirot is confined to his house after Japp after accepting a wager proposed by Japp.

Poirot sends his trusty associate Hastings to gather information for him, and Hastings' confusion and embarrassment is rather amusing. To add to the hilarity, Poirot occupies himself trying to learn magic tricks, and furthermore receives a pet animal to babysit.

This is a wonderful tale and all our favourite sidekicks (Hastings, Japp and Lemon) have significant roles. You will undoubtedly enjoy it - the plot is most ingenious and you'll be laughing out loud too!
