Agatha Christie’s Poirot – Elephants Can Remember: David Suchet returns to play the Belgian Detective for the last time
Tonight will see the return of Agatha Christie’s Poirot for its thirteenth and final series. Elephants Can Remember, sees Poirot investigate the strange and gruesome murder of an elderly psychologist, meanwhile his old friend, crime writer Ariadne Oliver, has a case of her own to solve.
Ariadne is pressed by the loathsome Mrs Burton-Cox to uncover the truth behind the murder of Ariadne’s old school chum, Margaret, and her husband General Ravenscroft. It is still unknown if their death was a double suicide, or if one murdered the other. Despite Mrs Burton-Cox’s impertinence, Ariadne can’t help but be curious, so takes it upon herself to set matters straight when her god-child Celia, the dead couple’s daughter, begs her to uncover the truth.
Ariadne sets off on a journey into the past to dig for the facts, but theories abound as memories get muddled and old secrets remain stubbornly hidden. Before long though, the old Ravenscroft puzzle is pulled sharply into the present-day, when the life of Desmond, Mrs Burton-Cox’s son and Celia’s intended, is threatened by a mysterious figure in black.
Meanwhile, Poirot’s skills remain engage elsewhere, as the case of the dead professor twists and turn. Poirot is also reluctant to accept that his good friend, the psychiatrist’s son Doctor Willougby, is himself responsible. Poirot’s already twitching mind is immediately piqued, and when he realises the murder of his old professor is connected with Mrs Oliver’s investigation, they join formidable forces.
Agatha Christie’s Poirot – Elephants Can Remember airs tonight on ITV at 8pm
