As a fan of David Suchet, I looked forward to seeing Maxwell. And I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I thought it was superb not only because of the strength of the story and script but of the acting. The production values are top notch with great photography, costumes and scenery. The story is compelling, the pacing is well judged and the script is very intelligent. The direction is also very confident and has a good balance of the comedic touch and the dark touch. The acting is very strong, all the supporting performances are very good but it is David Suchet in an exceptional performance as Maxwell who carries the drama. All in all, Maxwell is nothing short of excellent, and I recommend it highly especially if you like Suchet. If you are, you are in for a treat, because this is one of his better non-Poirot performances. 10/10 Bethany Cox
