Poirot /Needs no Introduction/

Agatha Christie’s Poirot has been in filming since 1989 with an impressive cast, including top young (er?) Hollywood stars such as Michael Fassbender, Emily Blunt or Jessica Chastain.
And of course David Suchet - as an annoying, prying and self-confident Belgian detective is just brilliant. Also Hugh Fraser created Captain Hastings as a solid character and not merely a narrator.

Whether you read Christie’s novels or not, Poirot is one of the world’s most famous detectives solving crimes all around the globe. The structure of each episode (or novel) is the same: during the grande finale Poirot tells the whole story and reveals the culprit. 
On a cold Sunday afternoon, there nothing better calming the autumn blues than a mug of hot tea and a puzzle to solve with Hercule. Still enjoyable, even if you know the unraveling of mystery by heart.
