Poirot's Final Cases: A Fond Farewell

Poirot fans have been patiently (or perhaps impatiently) awaiting the final three episodes of Agatha Christie's Poirot, Season 13, since the summer, when we brought you David Suchet in The Big Four and Dead Man's Folly. The season was paused due to distribution restrictions, but the wait is over and we can now bring the final three episodes to KCTS 9 viewers on Thursdays, Nov. 20, Nov. 27 and Dec 4. And when we say "final," we mean final. The dapper and diminutive Belgian detective will take his very last case in the series finale.

Endings are bittersweet, but there is much to celebrate! With the release of Agatha Christie's Poirot, S13, David Suchet will have completed the unsurpassed feat of portraying Agatha Christie’s beloved detective Hercule Poirot in all 70 Poirot stories. For the last 25 years, David Suchet has been synonymous with Poirot and recently received Royal Television Society’s prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for his work.

While we wish the series would never have to end, these achievements mark a significant milestone that true lovers of Poirot mysteries and David Suchet fans will appreciate. A meager tribute to a fine series, our Poirot Pinterest board keeps the spirit alive and well with photos David Suchet through the years along with his trusted secretary Miss Lemon, his friend Captain Hastings and some giggle-inducing, mustachioed cats. And more! (Want to suggest a pin for our board, send it our way!)

I have loved enjoyed and thought I would never ever see anyone play that roll again that was of any importance. I saw other people play Poirot in the movies and on TV, but never ever lived up to your interpretation. You were perfect.. what more can I say.

I also love your friend Capt. and your secretary they added so much to be perfect to complete the picture. Also who helped in doing over 25 years in everything to film the series. Sure did a great job too.

I will never ever not see you again and again as I am sure over the years they will play your video's over and over again for all the new people who discover your great talent and realize what a great job you did for so many years. Your art will live on, like good movies and people will in the years ahead will see and become fans even as we all do when you have passed on.

Its not good bye its hello to a fantastic acting job.

Bravo.. A good actor lives on forever.. How lucky you are.

Clap, clap, clap and I stand up and clap for you.
