murder 'MIST'....
Why was every thing in sepia or darkness in Poirot's penultimate show?

Lacklustre
A lifelong fan but this one must be he worst I have ever seen, boring and dull.

the FitzGerald (himself of that ilk)
BAFTA-Oscar-whatever this dersaervs them all and more simply brilliant theatre, intimate, close up superb thespianship, production as crowned by attention to reproducing the historical period with consummate accuracy...all hail writer, director and cast!
The FitzGerald (Himself)   9:43pm Sun 9 Jun Report Abuse

David Suchet
DS is the only true Poirot - never ever tire of it, repeats and all. However the rapport with Hastings and also Japp and Miss Lemon is a great miss.

Summary
Who wrote the summary? They obviously didn't watch the episode.

Ahhhhh...
Poirot..... (nearly) always a delight to watch - except for the later overdone 'Chorion' ones

voice over
... it was the 'audio description' on the tv, silly me. Poirot's excused.
Mintpark   5:21pm Fri 15 Apr Report Abuse

what's going on?
What's that contrived voice-over? I can't watch this. Loved every single Poirot I've seen so far but this Blue Train episode is wrong.
Minpark   12:16pm Mon 11 Apr Report Abuse

Pants
Well this must be the worst Poirot ever made have they changed the director, or just run out of money? The story has been distorted and cut if you did not know the story you would have had even less of a chance of understanding the plot. Miss cast characters no wonder most actors are usually unemployed, dam good job it was on freeview otherwise I would demand my money back. A poor performance from Suchet and the hole thing was a dissapointment.

Four and Twenty Blackbirds The Belgian detective begins to suspect something is amiss when he visits one of his favoured haunts in London for dinner and discovers a fellow regular has dramatically changed his diet. Down in Brighton, elderly Anthony Gascoigne lies dying while his estranged twin brother Henry falls to his death - but nobody is sure whether the man was deliberately pushed. Bizarrely, the key to the riddle seems to lie in a blackberry pie. David Suchet stars in the title role, with Philip Jackson, Hugh Fraser and Pauline Moran
