David Suchet embarks on a very personal journey as the man behind the mustache explores Agatha Christie’s most enduring character. The celebrated actor will take a poignant trip to discover the history of his most famous TV creation as he reveals how he has approached the role of the iconic detective over the past 25 years. David travels to Belgium as he attempts to unlock the mystery behind the great detective, discovers what the Belgians think about one of their most famous sons and allows our camera to film behind the scenes on the last days of filming. Having first premiered on ITV on 1989, a quarter of a century and 13 series later Poirot is a global phenomenon watched by 700 million viewers worldwide. As the final chapters of TV’s favorite detective draw to a close, emotions are running high as David films his last scenes. The great detective’s appearance in the film is frail and David reveals he lost almost two stone ahead of filming to emphasis the fragility of the once robust man. Agatha Christie wrote Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case in 1942 but it was locked in a bank vault for thirty years, finally published in 1975. Such was the furore over its content that it was covered on the front page of the New York Times showing the extraordinary impact the character had around the world.
