Christie’s “Poirot” Draws Curtains After Twenty-Five Years


Our own Rumblr editor, Molly McArdle, has a piece up in the Los Angeles Review of Books celebrating the twenty-five year run of “Poirot,” a British television series based on stories by Agatha Christie.

In her piece, she examines the nuanced titular protagonist of “Poirot,” as well as the beloved show’s cultural and literary significance. McArdle’s love for the show and its characters is tangible, and may just prompt you to check it out while you’re waiting on the new season of Doctor Who.
