Episode Summary

EDIT
Lord Edgware Dies
AIRED:

Jane Wilkinson, a famous actress whose married name is Lady Edgware, was in a hurry to trade in her moderately rich husband for an even richer model, so when Lord Edgware is killed, there is an obvious suspect. However, Edgware had just agreed to a divorce - with Poirot acting on his wife's behalf.

Under suspicion, Jane seeks Poirot's help again, having previously wanted his help in ridding her of the same unwanted husband.

So was Lady Edgware the killer, or has she been framed? Her husband also had an unhappy daughter and a nephew who badly needed money.

Poirot soon finds that nothing is at all as it seems in the remarkable world where the theatre collides with high society.

    "Lord Edgware Dies" is one of my favorite Agatha Christie novels and I was thoroughly pleased after watching this screen adaption. Although I was, most unfortunately, well aware of who did what and what was to happen while the story unfolded, David Suchet's performance and the brilliant script kept my eyes glued to the picture. A lovely mixture of drama, mystery, romance (well, somewhat), and even a hint of comedy (mostly from the lovable, dimwitted Captain Hastings, of course) made the experience so enjoyable, it hardly seemed to matter that my prior knowledge of the tale denied me the shock at the end. Highly recommended!moreless
