The Clapham Cook

On May 1, 2016 we watched “The Adventure of the Clapham Cook,” the first episode of Agatha Christie’s Poirot as a family.

This wasn’t the first time we watched a Poirot with the kids, but it was for them.


Pay no attention to what’s behind the Curtain

Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case closes out the twenty-four year (1989-2013) history of the television drama Agatha Christie’s Poirot, and I felt that things weren’t quite right.

“Dear Ms. Christi, I feel my final treatment has been rather severe…”

Without going into the plot I will say that I’ve heard Ms. Christie grew tired of the Belgian detective as time went on, and if so than this last case shows it.

I don’t feel the character was done justice, but perhaps I just don’t know him well enough.

Whatever my feelings on the last chapter in the famous sleuth’s career, it’s been nothing less than an incredibly impressive run for the show and I will miss looking forward to new cases.

Adieu mon ami.
