David Suchet is "Pragmatic" Over the Future of Hercule Poirot on ITV

David Suchet as Hercule Poirot

In a recent Telegraph article, David Suchet, the actor who has so memorably portrayed Agatha Christie's Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot for 20 years, says he's "pragmatic" over the future of the series. A year ago, Suchet expressed his desire to complete filming all of Christie's Poirot novels and short stories. But that goal is now in doubt, as ITV has not yet revealed any plans to start work on the few remaining stories to be filmed.

"I'm pragmatic and accept that things get cancelled," Suchet said. "Of course there are cutbacks in TV drama and if it is not to be, it is not to be. I will have to be a big boy and accept it."

Several films have already been filmed but have not yet been scheduled. ITV previously cancelled Poirot in 1995, only to bring it back four years later.

  1. They are so close to filming all the short stories and novels, it would be a shame not to get to the finish line. At least ITV should commission "Curtain" as a proper finale.
