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

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
