A number of great actors have played Agatha Christie's Poirot on screen.
Albert Finney, Peter Ustinov, John Malkovich, and Kenneth Branagh have all starred as the fictional Belgian detective in either films or TV series.
However, for many, David Suchet is the definitive Poirot.
He exercised his "little grey cells" on ITV from 1989 until June 2013 to complete the entire catalogue of whodunits featuring the eccentric Belgian investigator – from The Adventure of the Clapham Cook to Curtain: Poirot's Final Case.
You can still watch all 13 series and 70 episodes of Suchet as Poirot on BritBox, the BBC and ITV's subscription streaming service featuring great British shows.
David Suchet will talk about his time as Agatha Christie’s moustachioed sleuth in Cambridge next weekend.
Suchet’s multi award-winning career spans television, film and stage, and he is widely regarded as one of England’s finest actors.
