Many years' ago I read all of Dame Agatha Christie's Poirot books. I have recently added Collection 9 to the Complete Collection. All 11 Series of my Poirot DVD's, and I am now satisfied that the passion I feel for the little Belgian detective can go no further. David Suchet was born to portray this over-fastidious and brilliant detective on screen. A wonderful writer, plus a brilliant actor, spells BLISS!

Since posting my previous review, I have just finished reading David Suchet's book 'Poirot and Me'. It is about his involvement with the filming of the Poirot series. He tells the reader how as a character actor, he embraced the challenge of playing Poirot on screen,reading all
of the seventy stories written byDame Agatha Christie, and paying particular attention to how she described Poirot's idiosyncrasies. To help David remember them he made a list of what he referred to as 'my dossier of characteristics', it ended up five pages long and detailed ninety-three different aspects of Poirot's life. I have always enjoyed watching David Suchet's portrayal of Poirot due to the authenticity of his performances. Since reading his book I can now understand the reason why. He has been a replica of the Belgian detective for the last 25 years'.
This book is well worth reading. He mentions briefly aspects of his private life, his early life in the theatre, also the film work that has come his way over the years'.
Dame Agatha Christie, Hercule Poirot and David Suchet, to you all, au revoir and merci beaucoup!
