Time Out says

The actor famous for his tenure as Hercule Poirot is coming to Melbourne

There are two types of Agatha Christie fans: those who are team Poirot and those that are team Miss Marple. If you identify as the former then we bring good tidings. David Suchet, the man behind arguaby the most famous iteration of Hercule Poirot, is coming to Australia. 

Known for his small stature, big personality and impeccable curled moustache, the fictional Belgian detective used his “little grey cells” (that is, his brain) to untangle even the most dastardly murders. Suchet played Poirot for 25 years, appearing in a whopping 74 television films.

Of course Suchet is more than just Monsieur Poirot, having also portrayed Lady Bracknell in the Oscar Wilde comedy The Importance of Being Earnest and the father of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud in the BBC’s 1984 miniseries Freud. The accomplished actor is coming to Melbourne as part of an in-conversation tour looking back at his favourite performances. 

See Suchet at Hamer Hall on Saturday, January 25 or Thursday, February 13. Tickets available now.
