It is in regard to Hercule that I have lied to many of my friends. I have always said that I have read all of Agatha Christie's Poirot and that is simply not true. I have avoided the last one "Curtain: Poirot's Last Case" because I didn't want to read of Poirot's death.
At last, I broke down and watched the PBS version starring David Suchet. I have to say that Suchet has surpassed Peter Ustinov as my favorite Poirot (and between you and me that wasn't easy). While I will not say that "Curtain: Poirot's Last Case" was the best episode in the series, I thought that it was superb and a fine send-off for the great detective.
All things being said, I am glad that I watched it. I would give the episode 4 1/2 stars out of 5 and recommend it for the murder mystery fans.
Ah, Hastings, my dear friend. They were good days. Yes... they have been good days. --- Hercule Poirot
