What about Poirot on Masterpiece Mystery series?
I was very disappointed to realize we only saw two of the last five episodes filmed for Season 13. And out of order, no less.
You can watch them all on Acorn.tv - a British site for streaming TV.
The remaining 3 episodes should be released in November 2014 to PBS. Hopefully we will see them in the U.S. soon after?
The special on PBS, "Being Poirot" shown Aug. 17, 2014 was excellent. I liked the interview with David Suchet, never having seen him out of character. He took the audience on a tour of Agatha Christie's summer home in Torquay, Devon, England and introduced us to her grandson. This home is featured in the episode " Dead Man's Folly." We saw memorabilia of her home and writings. Then on to Belgian, home of Hercule Poirot. We also went for ride on "The Orient Express"! It is very clear why David Suchet was Hercule Poirot for 25 years. He was wonderful.
I really enjoyed learning more about Agatha Christie and her life, since she may be my all time favorite authors. Fascinating....
Hoping to see the remaining episodes soon.
