Storyline

Set in the 1930s, a time when Britain is dangerously divided and suspicion and hatred are on the rise, the story sees Poirot face a serial killer known only as A.B.C. As the body count rises, the only clue is a copy of The ABC Railway Guide at each crime scene. Poirot's investigations are continuously thwarted by an enemy determined to outsmart him. If Poirot is to match his nemesis, then everything about him will be called into question: his authority, his integrity, his past and his identity.

Why do people presume they can rewrite it better than Christie herself?
27 December 2018 | by steph_hammondSee all my reviews

4/10 is generous. To begin with, I found John Malkovich had no screen presence, no personality and generally boring. That was before we get to the story which has been changed so much- what was wrong with the original book? Short of plot? Characters? I don't think so. But apparently the screen writers think it would be better to do without Hastings, kill off Japp and add extra, presumed background stories. I gave it a 4 simply because it was nice to see Rupert Grint taking on a mature role and being good enough at it for me to watch him and not immediately think Ron Weasley. I won't be watching the other 2 episodes. I can, however, recommend the audio book read by Hugh Fraser if you don't fancy reading the book.
