Episode Summary

EDIT
The Big Four
AIRED:

As a deadly game of chess unfolds in the wake of World War II, Russian grandmaster Dr Ivan Savaranoff meets a shocking end, sending the public spiraling into panic, as suspicion is cast upon Peace Party stalwarts Abe Ryland and Madame Olivier. In one of his toughest challenges yet, Poirot must work out who the villains are from the good people, as a complex plot sees a host of international figures used like pawns by a gang of dangerous dissidents tagged "The Big Four." As the murders and disappearances stack up one by one, Poirot is joined in his investigations by his old friend Japp, the dogged journalist Tysoe, and struggling actress Flossie Monro, in an attempt to snare the killer and shatter "The Big Four" for good.

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • This episode marks the first appearance of Philip Jackson (initially Chief Inspector Japp, now promoted to Assistant Commissioner for this episode) and Pauline Moran (Miss Lemon) since Evil Under the Sun in 2002, and the first appearance of Hugh Fraser (Captain Hastings) since Murder in Mesopotamia of that same year.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Poirot: Who discovered the body?
        Japp: The Chinese manservant. Chinese, Poirot. And Diana Paynter, the wife of 30 years. Smelt the smoke apparently from her own bedroom.
        Poirot: Madame Paynter, she does not share the bedchamber with her husband?
        Japp: Didn't you hear me, Poirot? 30 years! To be honest, I think Mrs. Japp would jump at this type of sleeping arrangement, if we had the room.
