One good thing about being sick and having to sit at home all day is that you have time to watch quality tv! Agatha Christies Hercule Poirot is one of my all time favourites. Not just because of my love to detective stories but also 'cause it's so brilliantly made. The costumes are wonderful. The first Poirot film with David Suchet (the only REAL Poirot if you ask me) was made in 1989 and since then there has been nine different costume designers (and a huge costume and wardrobe department) dressing Monsieur Poirot.
Miss Lemon (Pauline Moran), Poirot.
Inspector Japp (Philip Jackson), Poirot, Captain Hastings (Hugh Fraser), Miss Lemon (Pauline Moran).
There is also other interesting characters like Captain Hastings and Countess Vera Rossakoff, but one of my favourites is the gutsy crime writer Ariadne Oliver (who is said to be a fictionalised version of Agatha hersef).
Miss Lemon didn't have very big role in Christies books, but in the films she is one of my favourite characters. Quiet and competent and always very elegantly dressed!
Did you know, that Pauline Moran had a top 40 hit in the 60's with her pop group "The She Trinity"? I didn't!
