    I just ordered the 12 labours because everyone is saying it might not get made into a TV episode so I better check it out.

    I really enjoyed that book... Not really a short story person, but I liked it.

    Does any of the 6 remaining ones (apart from Curtin) contain Hastings Japp? Because it would be good to see the actors return again.
  • edited June 2011
    Uuh... I'm sure neither of them are in Dead Man's Folly, and I'm not sure about The Labours of Hercules. But from what I've read these characters have appeared in episodes that they were not in the books of. So I figure they'll get worked in since it's the last series....

    David Suchet has got a CBE and says it may be next autumn when the 6 Poirot's are commissioned.

    As someone who's always been interested in Christie-mysteries, I recorded and watched 'Three Act Tragedy'. It was incredibly depressing and dear lord I want more.

    Suchet WILL complete the canon....

    ... well, except for all the stories that are specific variants of other stories...

    and he's joined Twitter, now, too! @David_Suchet

    The thought of Poirot typing tweets makes me smile.
  • edited November 2011
    I am so happy right now!! And I tweeted David Suchet telling him he has made me a life long fan of the series.

    Découvrir la solution n'est pas toujours très simple. Mes petites cellules grises devez connecter les preuves, Il doit y avoir motif, la raison, et il doit y avoir un avantage. N'avez-vous pas d'accord, Hastings?

    Fifty bucks to the first guy who can translate this without using Dictionary.com!

    While i'm here, who thinks that Telltale should do a game based on Agatha Christie's Poirot?
  • edited November 2011
    Great news guys!
    First stop tomorrow-Israel for the first leg of the St.Paul documentary. I'll keep in touch. And good news! Capt. Hastings WILL be back!

    I say! the final series sounds awesome.

    The last series will film in October.
    In October I’ll be filming my last five stories. Agatha Christie didn’t write any more, so I will have done them all.’ The last book in the series, in which
    Poirot dies
    , is called Curtain, and there was a time when David refused to film it. ‘I thought it would be too devastating. Nothing had prepared me for the public’s enormous affection for Poirot. People loved him so much that when he
    died it made the front page of the New York Times
    . But the time has come to say goodbye. I’ll feel very sad, but also enormously privileged that I’ve been given that fantastic body of work and that this little man, who’s taken me all over the world, has given so much pleasure to so many.

    I dunno if it's been mentioned at all but Mark Gatiss is adapting the Big Four (aka Poirot turns into a blockbuster movie action hero) for the next series, which makes me happy.

    Also the blu-rays of the first few years are coming out (at least in R1) and I want them badly.

    Yay coolsomes back - more talking of Poirot! :)

    Yes, I think he might be a good choice for that novel. He strikes me as the kind of guy who would enjoy the somewhat ridiculous use of the characters.

    "Suchet has confirmed – will feature the return of Philip Jackson as Japp and Pauline Moran as Miss Lemon."

    There's a cast list for the last series on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Agatha_Christie%27s_Poirot_episodes#Series_13_.282013.29

    I can't wait to see the old gang reunited. :D

    Number 4 has to be played by different actors in his disguises to work as it did in the book.

    So this is on Netflix now.

    This is the third revival I want to see done. The other two are Charlie Chan and Fu Manchu.
  • edited May 2013
    Hmm... a couple of websites report that a broadcast date in June is to be announced, and the EPG shows "Agatha Christie's Poirot" - no details - showing on ITV a week on Sunday.

    (Hmm... perhaps they can do "The Labours of Hercules" in the same manner as the third episode of "Sherlock"?!)

    Anime bullshit.

    Oh, I can't wait! Hopefully they'll release it early on DVD here like they did with series 12, which came out on DVD before all the episodes had even aired in the UK, I think.

    Wikipedia says it is showing Elephants Can Remember in June.

    Curtain will be on 12 January 2014.
  • Poirot returns!

    (Strictly speaking, there have indeed been no Poirot pastiche novels so far. There's been a novelisation of a play, at least two short stories, and a novel in which Poirot appears as one of a large cast, but no original novel. But there's been... what, five? more James Bond novelists than the BBC are aware of)

  • The Big Four is gonna be on the 23rd and ITV had a trailer announcing the final 4 cases are starting with this so the others will be soon to follow presumably

  • The last episode will be airing in Mainland Europe in January, so it's safe to assume it'll be monthly.
