      • By the time Murder in Mesopotamia was filmed, Poirot was a joint UK-US production, and the story was first broadcast in the US on July 8, 2001. It was first shown on UK television on June 2, 2002.

      • This episode is based on Agatha Christie's book Murder in Mesopotamia (1936).

        Agatha met her second husband, the archaeologist Max Mallowan, while he was digging in Mesopotamia - then part of a British protectorate.

      • David Suchet commented on Murder in Mesopotamia - "It was undoubtedly the most difficult shoot of my entire career because of the extreme heat. The temperature reached 139 degrees, and my costume consists of a three-piece wool suit, leather gloves, a hat, a wing collar, bow tie, and full body padding. I had to drink four litres of water every day because I was sweating so much, but even so I nearly fainted on several occasions."

      • Murder In Mesopotamia was filmed in the summer of 2000 at a big archaeological site in Tunisia, where the Roman city of Oudhna was being excavated. A site in the real Mesopotamia would have been more problematical, as this ancient province is now in the modern country of Iraq.
