Grab those ‘little grey cells’ and your finest moustache comb, as we take on the case of looking back at the history of Hercule Poirot on screen.
Tom attempts (and fails) to pronounce the name of Agatha Christie’s iconic Belgian detective, as he takes Morgan back through all the depictions of the crime-solving sleuth, from Finney to Branagh, Suchet to Ustinov. Even Molina.
We also discuss:
- The power of ITV3 and the ‘laid back treat’ crime drama
- How Agatha Christie couldn’t stand Poirot (and why he’s actually a bit of a git)
- Morgan’s bafflement on how Spice World existed
- How trendy Alfred Molina is
- Ranking the ‘taches
We’re also planning our upcoming 100th episode, and we would LOVE for you to get in touch for a special fan-led Q&A, so please do ask us absolutely anything.
