Edit Storyline This whodunit series based on Dame Agatha Christie's crime novels and short stories, was named after its star sleuth, Hercule Poirot David Suchet , a famous former Belgian Policeman, who settled for good in London after the war, soon so famous as an infallible private detective that he becomes a society figure in his own right.

In The Big Four , Poirot pretends to have and poses as an identical twin brother named Achille: however, this brother was mentioned again in The Labours of Hercules.

Had all that really happened? Poirot is also willing to appear more foreign or vain in an effort to make people underestimate him.

He admits as much:. It is true that I can speak the exact, the idiomatic English. But, my friend, to speak the broken English is an enormous asset.

It leads people to despise you. They say — a foreigner — he can't even speak English properly. Also I boast! An Englishman he says often, "A fellow who thinks as much of himself as that cannot be worth much.

And so, you see, I put people off their guard. He also has a tendency to refer to himself in the third person.

In later novels, Christie often uses the word mountebank when characters describe Poirot, showing that he has successfully passed himself off as a charlatan or fraud.

Poirot's investigating techniques assist him solving cases; "For in the long run, either through a lie, or through truth, people were bound to give themselves away Christie was purposely vague about Poirot's origins, as he is thought to be an elderly man even in the early novels.

In An Autobiography, she admitted that she already imagined him to be an old man in At the time, however, she had no idea she would write works featuring him for decades to come.

A brief passage in The Big Four provides original information about Poirot's birth or at least childhood in or near the town of Spa, Belgium : "But we did not go into Spa itself.

We left the main road and wound into the leafy fastnesses of the hills, till we reached a little hamlet and an isolated white villa high on the hillside.

An alternative tradition holds that Poirot was born in the village of Ellezelles province of Hainaut, Belgium. There appears to be no reference to this in Christie's writings, but the town of Ellezelles cherishes a copy of Poirot's birth certificate in a local memorial 'attesting' Poirot's birth, naming his father and mother as Jules-Louis Poirot and Godelieve Poirot.

Christie wrote that Poirot is a Catholic by birth, [32] but not much is described about his later religious convictions, except sporadic references to his "going to church".

Apart from French and English, Poirot is also fluent in German. I have dealt with policemen all my life and I know. He could pass as a detective to an outsider but not to a man who was a policeman himself.

Hercule Poirot was active in the Brussels police force by As Poirot was often misleading about his past to gain information, the truthfulness of that statement is unknown; it does however scare off a would be killer of his wife.

In the short story "The Chocolate Box" , Poirot reveals to Captain Arthur Hastings an account of what he considers to be his only failure.

Poirot admits that he has failed to solve a crime "innumerable" times:. I have been called in too late. Very often another, working towards the same goal, has arrived there first.

Twice I have been struck down with illness just as I was on the point of success. Nevertheless, he regards the case in "The Chocolate Box", [36] as his only actual failure of detection.

Again, Poirot is not reliable as a narrator of his personal history and there is no evidence that Christie sketched it out in any depth.

During his police career Poirot shot a man who was firing from a roof into the public below. Poirot also became a uniformed director, working on trains.

Inspector Japp offers some insight into Poirot's career with the Belgian police when introducing him to a colleague:. You've heard me speak of Mr Poirot?

It was in he and I worked together — the Abercrombie forgery case — you remember he was run down in Brussels.

Ah, those were the days Moosier. Then, do you remember "Baron" Altara? There was a pretty rogue for you! He eluded the clutches of half the police in Europe.

But we nailed him in Antwerp — thanks to Mr. Poirot here. I had called in at my friend Poirot's rooms to find him sadly overworked.

So much had he become the rage that every rich woman who had mislaid a bracelet or lost a pet kitten rushed to secure the services of the great Hercule Poirot.

On 16 July he again met his lifelong friend, Captain Arthur Hastings, and solved the first of his cases to be published, The Mysterious Affair at Styles.

It is clear that Hastings and Poirot are already friends when they meet in Chapter 2 of the novel, as Hastings tells Cynthia that he has not seen him for "some years".

After that case, Poirot apparently came to the attention of the British secret service and undertook cases for the British government, including foiling the attempted abduction of the Prime Minister.

After the war Poirot became a private detective and began undertaking civilian cases. He moved into what became both his home and work address, Flat at 56B Whitehaven Mansions.

Murders , Chapter 1. According to Hastings, it was chosen by Poirot "entirely on account of its strict geometrical appearance and proportion" and described as the "newest type of service flat".

The Florin Court building was actually built in , decades after Poirot fictionally moved in. His first case in this period was "The Affair at the Victory Ball", which allowed Poirot to enter high society and begin his career as a private detective.

Between the world wars, Poirot travelled all over Europe, Africa, Asia, and half of South America investigating crimes and solving murders.

Most of his cases occurred during this time and he was at the height of his powers at this point in his life.

However he did not travel to North America, the West Indies, the Caribbean or Oceania, probably to avoid sea sickness. It is this villainous sea that troubles me!

The mal de mer — it is horrible suffering! It was during this time he met the Countess Vera Rossakoff, a glamorous jewel thief.

The history of the Countess is, like Poirot's, steeped in mystery. She claims to have been a member of the Russian aristocracy before the Russian Revolution and suffered greatly as a result, but how much of that story is true is an open question.

Even Poirot acknowledges that Rossakoff offered wildly varying accounts of her early life. Poirot later became smitten with the woman and allowed her to escape justice.

It is the misfortune of small, precise men always to hanker after large and flamboyant women. Poirot had never been able to rid himself of the fatal fascination that the Countess held for him.

Although letting the Countess escape was morally questionable, it was not uncommon. In The Nemean Lion , Poirot sided with the criminal, Miss Amy Carnaby, allowing her to evade prosecution by blackmailing his client Sir Joseph Hoggins, who, Poirot discovered, had plans to commit murder.

Poirot even sent Miss Carnaby two hundred pounds as a final payoff prior to the conclusion of her dog kidnapping campaign. In The Murder of Roger Ackroyd , Poirot allowed the murderer to escape justice through suicide and then withheld the truth to spare the feelings of the murderer's relatives.

In The Augean Stables , he helped the government to cover up vast corruption. In Murder on the Orient Express , Poirot allowed the murderers to go free after discovering that twelve different people participated in the murder, each one stabbing the victim in a darkened carriage after drugging him into unconsciousness so that there was no way for anyone to definitively determine which of them actually delivered the killing blow.

The victim had been committed a disgusting crime which had led to the deaths of at least five people. There was no question of his guilt, but he had been acquitted in America in a miscarriage of justice.

Considering it poetic justice that twelve jurors had acquitted him and twelve people had stabbed him, Poirot produced an alternative sequence of events to explain the death involving an unknown additional passenger on the train, with the medical examiner agreeing to doctor his own report to support this theory.

After his cases in the Middle East, Poirot returned to Britain. Apart from some of the so-called "Labours of Hercules" see next section he very rarely went abroad during his later career.

He moved into Styles Court towards the end of his life. While Poirot was usually paid handsomely by clients, he was also known to take on cases that piqued his curiosity, although they did not pay well.

Confusion surrounds Poirot's retirement. Most of the cases covered by Poirot's private detective agency take place before his retirement to grow marrows , at which time he solves The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.

It has been said that the twelve cases related in The Labours of Hercules must refer to a different retirement, but the fact that Poirot specifically says that he intends to grow marrows indicates that these stories also take place before Roger Ackroyd , and presumably Poirot closed his agency once he had completed them.

There is specific mention in "The Capture of Cerberus" of the twenty-year gap between Poirot's previous meeting with Countess Rossakoff and this one.

If the Labours precede the events in Roger Ackroyd , then the Ackroyd case must have taken place around twenty years later than it was published, and so must any of the cases that refer to it.

One alternative would be that having failed to grow marrows once, Poirot is determined to have another go, but this is specifically denied by Poirot himself.

Another alternative would be to suggest that the Preface to the Labours takes place at one date but that the labours are completed over a matter of twenty years.

None of the explanations is especially attractive. In terms of a rudimentary chronology, Poirot speaks of retiring to grow marrows in Chapter 18 of The Big Four [46] which places that novel out of published order before Roger Ackroyd.

He is certainly retired at the time of Three Act Tragedy but he does not enjoy his retirement and repeatedly takes cases thereafter when his curiosity is engaged.

He continues to employ his secretary, Miss Lemon, at the time of the cases retold in Hickory Dickory Dock and Dead Man's Folly , which take place in the mids.

It is therefore better to assume that Christie provided no authoritative chronology for Poirot's retirement, but assumed that he could either be an active detective, a consulting detective, or a retired detective as the needs of the immediate case required.

One consistent element about Poirot's retirement is that his fame declines during it, so that in the later novels he is often disappointed when characters especially younger characters recognise neither him nor his name:.

I am Hercule Poirot. He, I knew, was not likely to be far from his headquarters. The time when cases had drawn him from one end of England to the other was past.

Poirot is less active during the cases that take place at the end of his career. Beginning with Three Act Tragedy , Christie had perfected during the inter-war years a subgenre of Poirot novel in which the detective himself spent much of the first third of the novel on the periphery of events.

In novels such as Taken at the Flood , After the Funeral , and Hickory Dickory Dock , he is even less in evidence, frequently passing the duties of main interviewing detective to a subsidiary character.

In Cat Among the Pigeons , Poirot's entrance is so late as to be almost an afterthought. Whether this was a reflection of his age or of Christie's distaste for him, is impossible to assess.

Crooked House and Ordeal by Innocence , which could easily have been Poirot novels, represent a logical endpoint of the general diminution of his presence in such works.

Towards the end of his career, it becomes clear that Poirot's retirement is no longer a convenient fiction. He assumes a genuinely inactive lifestyle during which he concerns himself with studying famous unsolved cases of the past and reading detective novels.

He even writes a book about mystery fiction in which he deals sternly with Edgar Allan Poe and Wilkie Collins. Poirot and, it is reasonable to suppose, his creator [a] becomes increasingly bemused by the vulgarism of the up-and-coming generation's young people.

In Hickory Dickory Dock , he investigates the strange goings on in a student hostel, while in Third Girl he is forced into contact with the smart set of Chelsea youths.

In the growing drug and pop culture of the sixties, he proves himself once again, but has become heavily reliant on other investigators especially the private investigator , Mr.

Goby who provide him with the clues that he can no longer gather for himself. You're too old. Nobody told me you were so old.

I really don't want to be rude but — there it is. I'm really very sorry. Notably, during this time his physical characteristics also change dramatically, and by the time Arthur Hastings meets Poirot again in Curtain , he looks very different from his previous appearances, having become thin with age and with obviously dyed hair.

This took place at Styles Court, scene of his first English case in In Christie's novels, he lived into the late s, perhaps even until when Curtain was published.

In both the novel and the television adaptation, he had moved his amyl nitrite pills out of his own reach, possibly because of guilt.

He thereby became the murderer in Curtain , although it was for the benefit of others. Poirot himself noted that he wanted to kill his victim shortly before his own death so that he could avoid succumbing to the arrogance of the murderer, concerned that he might come to view himself as entitled to kill those whom he deemed necessary to eliminate.

The "murderer" that he was hunting had never actually killed anyone, but he had manipulated others to kill for him, subtly and psychologically manipulating the moments where others desire to commit murder so that they carry out the crime when they might otherwise dismiss their thoughts as nothing more than a momentary passion.

Poirot thus was forced to kill the man himself, as otherwise he would have continued his actions and never been officially convicted, as he did not legally do anything wrong.

It is revealed at the end of Curtain that he fakes his need for a wheelchair to fool people into believing that he is suffering from arthritis , to give the impression that he is more infirm than he is.

His last recorded words are " Cher ami! The TV adaptation adds that as Poirot is dying alone, he whispers out his final prayer to God in these words: "Forgive me Hastings reasoned, "Here was the spot where he had lived when he first came to this country.

He was to lie here at the last. Poirot's actual death and funeral occurred in Curtain , years after his retirement from active investigation, but it was not the first time that Hastings attended the funeral of his best friend.

Hastings, a former British Army officer, first meets Poirot during Poirot's years as a police officer in Belgium and almost immediately after they both arrive in England.

He becomes Poirot's lifelong friend and appears in many cases. Poirot regards Hastings as a poor private detective, not particularly intelligent, yet helpful in his way of being fooled by the criminal or seeing things the way the average man would see them and for his tendency to unknowingly "stumble" onto the truth.

Hastings is capable of great bravery and courage, facing death unflinchingly when confronted by The Big Four and displaying unwavering loyalty towards Poirot.

However, when forced to choose between Poirot and his wife in that novel, he initially chooses to betray Poirot to protect his wife.

Later, though, he tells Poirot to draw back and escape the trap. The two are an airtight team until Hastings meets and marries Dulcie Duveen, a beautiful music hall performer half his age, after investigating the Murder on the Links.

They later emigrate to Argentina, leaving Poirot behind as a "very unhappy old man". The two collaborate for the final time in Curtain: Poirot's Last Case , when the seemingly-crippled Poirot asks Hastings to assist him in his final case.

When the killer they are tracking nearly manipulates Hastings into committing murder, Poirot describes this in his final farewell letter to Hastings as the catalyst that prompted him to eliminate the man himself, as Poirot knew that his friend was not a murderer and refused to let a man capable of manipulating Hastings in such a manner go on.

Detective novelist Ariadne Oliver is Agatha Christie's humorous self-caricature. Like Christie, she is not overly fond of the detective whom she is most famous for creating—in Ariadne's case, Finnish sleuth Sven Hjerson.

We never learn anything about her husband, but we do know that she hates alcohol and public appearances and has a great fondness for apples until she is put off them by the events of Hallowe'en Party.

She also has a habit of constantly changing her hairstyle, and in every appearance by her much is made of her clothes and hats.

Her maid Maria prevents the public adoration from becoming too much of a burden on her employer, but does nothing to prevent her from becoming too much of a burden on others.

She has authored more than 56 novels and greatly dislikes people modifying her characters. Poirot's secretary, Miss Felicity Lemon, has few human weaknesses.

The only mistakes she makes within the series are a typing error during the events of Hickory Dickory Dock and the mis-mailing of an electricity bill, although she was worried about strange events surrounding her sister at the time.

Poirot described her as being "Unbelievably ugly and incredibly efficient. Anything that she mentioned as worth consideration usually was worth consideration.

She also worked for the government statistician-turned-philanthropist Parker Pyne. Whether this was during one of Poirot's numerous retirements or before she entered his employ is unknown.

On a number of occasions, she joins Poirot in his inquiries or seeks out answers alone at his request. Japp is a Scotland Yard Inspector and appears in many of the stories trying to solve cases that Poirot is working on.

Agents, Fox Mulder the believer and Dana Scully the skeptic, investigate the strange and unexplained, while hidden forces work to impede their efforts.

Hotel owner Basil Fawlty's incompetence, short fuse, and arrogance form a combination that ensures accidents and trouble are never far away.

Chief Inspector Morse has an ear for music, a taste for beer and a nose for crime. He sets out with Detective Sergeant Lewis to solve each intriguing case.

This whodunit series based on Dame Agatha Christie's crime novels and short stories, was named after its star sleuth, Hercule Poirot David Suchet , a famous former Belgian Policeman, who settled for good in London after the war, soon so famous as an infallible private detective that he becomes a society figure in his own right.

Japp is a Scotland Yard Inspector and appears in many of the stories trying to solve cases that Poirot is working on. Japp is outgoing, loud, and sometimes inconsiderate by nature, and his relationship with the refined Belgian is one of the stranger aspects of Poirot's world.

He first met Poirot in Belgium in , during the Abercrombie Forgery. Later that year they joined forces again to hunt down a criminal known as Baron Altara.

They also meet in England where Poirot often helps Japp and lets him take credit in return for special favours.

These favours usually entail Poirot being supplied with other interesting cases. The Poirot books take readers through the whole of his life in England, from the first book The Mysterious Affair at Styles , where he is a refugee staying at Styles, to the last Poirot book Curtain , where he visits Styles before his death.

In between, Poirot solves cases outside England as well, including his most famous case, Murder on the Orient Express Hercule Poirot became famous in with the publication of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd , whose surprising solution proved controversial.

Leslie S. Hiscott directed the first two films, and Henry Edwards took over for the third. This was more a satire of Poirot than a straightforward adaptation, and was greatly changed from the original.

Much of the story, set in modern times, was played for comedy, with Poirot investigating the murders while evading the attempts by Hastings Robert Morley and the police to get him out of England and back to Belgium.

As of today, Finney is the only actor to receive an Academy Award nomination for playing Poirot, though he did not win.

Peter Ustinov played Poirot six times, starting with Death on the Nile Christie's daughter Rosalind Hicks observed Ustinov during a rehearsal and said, " That's not Poirot!

He isn't at all like that! Earlier adaptations were set during the time in which the novels were written, but these TV movies were set in the contemporary era.

David Suchet considers his performance as Japp to be "possibly the worst performance of [his] career". In , Kenneth Branagh directed and starred in a film adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express.
