Agatha Christie’s Poirot: Evil Under The Sun (ITV1 20 Apr 2011, Carolyn Pickles)

Evil Under The Sun

In Evil Under The Sun Poirot is on a health kick holidaying in a well to do hotel on Devon’s South Coast and indulging in his favourite hobby of people watching when he is drawn into a murder mystery when a young married woman is found dead on the beach. The victim Arlena Stuart had been causing a stir at the hotel because of her flirtatious ways.

Poirot soon discovers an ample amount of suspects and soon has Hastings, Miss Lemon and Chief Inspector Japp on the case with him.

One of the best Poirot novels (which was first published in 1941) is here given a very nice feature length production, although by this stage in the show’s run all of the episodes are occasional feature length specials.
