ITV Commissions Final Five Poirot Stories

Agatha Christie's Poirot (ITV)

ITV announced this morning that it has commissioned the remaining Poirot novels and short stories yet to be filmed. David Suchet will reprise his role as the Belgian private detective.

"I'm more than delighted to be reprising my role as Poirot. It's been my life's ambition to bring this amazing canon of works to completion on ITV," said Suchet. "Poirot is a brilliant, yet profoundly complicated character and I've always loved playing him. He's considerate, with a love of elegance and precision, but he is also so maddeningly frustrating to play as he's so vain and pedantic! What endears me to him the most is his endless love of people. And for all his faults he is one of the greatest listeners in literature. I've been so fortunate to play him."

The five made-for-television adaptations that will go into production in 2012 are Labours of Hercules, Dead Man's Folly, The Big Four, Elephants Can Remember, and Christie's final case for Poirot, Curtain.
