'Being Poirot' DVD Review

David Suchet for 25 years played the great detective Hercule Poirot. Agatha Christie created the character Poirot one hundred years ago in her novel, 'The Mysterious Affair at Styles'.

'Being Poirot' is a journey back to Agatha Christies summer home in Devon those many years before Suchet would meet the author's family. You will travel to Poirot's roots in Belgium and you will get a chance to hear from the Belgians themselves of what they think of their most famous son.

Hercule Poirot is possibly one of the best loved characters of the detective genre. David Suchet has for these 25 years been able to bring the character to life. In this documentary you will hear from Suchet himself as to how he feels toward this character and how it changed his life. You will get a chance to experience those final days of filming the final chapter to this wonderful series. You will be brought to tears as you watch the pure emotion of the actors as they hear that's a wrap. 

The show may be over but the series can be seen on DVD and all 13 series are available for viewing. If you have never seen an Agatha Christie's Poirot in action then by all means learn what it meant to be Hercule Poirot and then by all means go and get all 13 series. 

Acorn brings 'Being Poirot' to DVD on September 6th, 2016 for all to see. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are exquisite. This is definitely a must for any David Suchet fan or simply any Hercule Poirot fan or simply any Agatha Christie fan. In other words this is a must for that personal library. This is the history of one of the best shows ever made. 

You will also get to see the interview they did with Agatha Christie's grandson Mathew Prichard and see his take on the series and David Suchet. So don't waste any time and pick up your copy of 'Being Poirot' and be entertained and possibly learn something that you might not have known about David Suchet and his portrayal of the great Hercule Poirot.
