The detective series Poirot, starring David Suchet as Agatha Christie‘s Belgian sleuth, comes to an end after a 25-year run with the first of the final three episodes airing tonight (August 11) on Acorn TV.
Acorn TV will exclusively premiere the final three episodes (one per week): Aug. 11 for “Elephants Can Remember,” Aug. 18 for “Labours of Hercules,” and Aug. 25 for “Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case.” When the series finale is added, Acorn TV will be the only place to watch all 70 episodes that make up the fan favorite series.
When asked about saying goodbye to the character of Poirot, Suchet told The Washington Post, “I think I’ll miss him. He became much more than just a character. He became my best friend.”
In anticipation of the final season, the first episode (1989) of Poirot, “The Adventure of Clapham Cook,” is now available to stream for free at www.Acorn.TV.
Here’s a preview of tonight’s episode, introduced by Suchet:
The final five episodes feature the return of several characters, including Hugh Fraser as Capt. Hastings, Philip Jackson as Inspector Japp, and Pauline Moran as Miss Lemon, as well as guest stars Iain Glen, Helen Baxendale, and Philip Glenister.
