Actor David Suchet reaches the pinnacle of his remarkable twenty-one-year career as Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot by taking on the great detective’s most celebrated case, Murder on the Orient Express. The classic tale headlines Hercule Poirot: Series X, three new Poirot whodunits by Agatha Christie on MASTERPIECE Mystery!, airing Sundays, July 11, 18, and 25, 2010, at 9pm ET on PBS (check local listings).
Suchet describes Murder on the Orient Express (July 11) as “a psychological journey for Poirot, one that absolutely breaks him.”
Suchet is joined by a galaxy of international stars playing passengers aboard the glamorous Istanbul-to-Calais run—where a shocking stabbing launches Christie’s most intricate and clever plot. The co-stars include Eileen Atkins (Cranford), Hugh Bonneville (Iris), Barbara Hershey (Oscar nominated for The Portrait of a Lady), Toby Jones (W.), David Morrissey (Sense and Sensibility), and Samuel West (Howard’s End).
