Didn't Poirot die in Curtain?

Janet Rudolph said...

So happy about this! To me, Suchet is Poirot. Of course, I wish they weren't doing Curtain...

I feel this is good news/ worried news. Most of the productions are great, but there have been some bad misfires where the script writers feel the need to completely change the story. Mystery on the Blue Train is a prime example. The TV show barely resembles the story, likewise Appointment With Death. but I am always hopeful.
