poirot
David Suchet returns in his signature role as suave Belgian super-sleuth Hercule Poirot in two new mysteries, "The Big Four" and "Dead Man's Folly," based on the novels by Agatha Christie. Whether he's on holiday abroad, taking a countryside break or simply going about his business, Poirot exercises his "little grey cells" by helping police investigate crimes and murders - whether they ask for his help or not.

"The Big Four" (August 4)

Adapted by Mark Gatiss (Sherlock), "The Big Four" plunges Poirot into a world of global espionage, set against the backdrop of the impending WWII. The public is in a panic after the shocking death of a Russian chess grandmaster. With the help of old friends Captain Hastings, Inspector Japp and Miss Lemon, Poirot must navigate international figures and intrigue to identify the culprit.
