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.

Worst Poirot rendition I've ever seen
2 February 2019 | by shanx24See all my reviews

David Suchet set the bar so high that not many have been able to match his immaculate take on Poirot. But Malkovich hits a new low. As much as I like him as an actor, his Belgian/French accent is missing entirely and comes across just as an idiotic affectation. The style of the show is needlessly over-stylized for the young crowds who might have enjoyed the new Sherlock (I quite liked the first season too before style took over any semblance of substance.) This is a sorry excuse of a drawn out three episode series. The David Suchet episode is available on YouTube and still stands head and shoulders above any other version of ABC Murders.
