Storyline

Set in the 1930s, a time when Britain is dangerously divided and suspicion and hatred are on the rise, the story sees Poirot face a serial killer known only as A.B.C. As the body count rises, the only clue is a copy of The ABC Railway Guide at each crime scene. Poirot's investigations are continuously thwarted by an enemy determined to outsmart him. If Poirot is to match his nemesis, then everything about him will be called into question: his authority, his integrity, his past and his identity.

Where was the humor? And the acting? And the plot?
30 December 2018 | by tim-137-552735See all my reviews

One of the great elements of Agatha Christie's writing is the black humour, accessed through her detectives, Poirot and Miss Marley. This series seems to misunderstand Miss Christie completely. Psychobabble, priests and religion as motivation, bizarre plotting then conjoined with direction that was so over the top that it left no room for dialogue and acting. Very bad, very silly, I'm owed three hours please!
