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.

Better than the Original
4 August 2004 | by sirius_asriel2004See all my reviews

I was a little shocked to see this given a bad rating. Death on the Nile is one of the my most favourite books and compared to the original, this version was FAR more dedicated to the book and the the casting was very good.

HOWEVER! I can understand on some accounts that in certain areas it did appear a little dry. But apart from that it was brilliant!

David Suchet plays a very convincing Poirot and is more suited than the late Peter Ustinov, who in my opinion played Poirot as if he were stern and highly sarcastic.

This was VERY enjoyable!
