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

Published

on

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.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
