Agatha Kills Poirot-Again

Just heard on the Christie grapevine that the last scene of the final Poirot story has been filmed thus ending David Suchets long association with Agatha Christie's most famous detective. Boo hoo I say.

They have yet to film the four other stories that David is contracted to, but he apparently wanted to film the last story before the others.

Maybe it is because in the last story, Poirot's last case, he is totally immobilised by arthritis and has to rely on Captain Hastings, I think the little Belgian detective would feel that to be a very poor show indeed.

When Christie wrote the novel in 1975, ending the life of Poirot, The New York Times reported a front page obituary for the detective, How cool is that?

And how cute is this?
