David Suchet was honored with the Commander Order of the British Empire and expressed some hope that Poirot would return to ITV to adapt the final five Poirot books in the Autumn of next year. He said that while it wasn’t official, “the green light is blinking.”
Four novels and one play remain that have not been adapted for television by ITV:
The Big Four
Dead Man’s Folly
Elephant Can Remember
There also remains an entire short story collection (“The Labors of Hercules”) as well as one of Poirot’s Early Cases that wasn’t adapted during the original one hour serials but the ship has probably saled on those. In the meanwhile, it’s good to here Suchet bullish about more episode of Poirot. Hopefully, I’ll be fairly well caught up by the time the new ones are released.
