Actor David Suchet recalls his experience of playing Agatha Christie's world-famous detective, Hercule Poirot, for almost a quarter of a century.
In the summer of 2013 David Suchet filmed his final scenes as Hercule Poirot. After 24 years in the role, he will have played the character in every story that Agatha Christie wrote about him (bar one, deemed unfilmable) and he will bid adieu to a role and a character that have changed his life.
In Poirot and Me, David Suchet tells the story of how he secured the part, with the blessing of Agatha Christie's daughter, and set himself the task of presenting the most authentic Poirot that had ever been filmed. David Suchet is uniquely placed to write the ultimate companion to one of the world's longest running television series.
Peppered with anecdotes about filming, including many tales of the guest stars who have appeared over the years, the book is essential for Poirot fans all over the world.

David Suchet is doing a great job talking about David Suchet. You can hear the fondness he holds for "the little man" he played for so long, and it's fun listening to him.

But the recounting itself is surprisingly shallow. Despite the considerable length of the narration, there are hardly any anecdotes and details from filming or fan encounters. In fact, most of the things David Suchet tells us about his history with Poirot on TV, we can easily find out from imdb. I'd have liked more insights regarding how the character changed Suchet and how his family dealt with that, or anything from the actual production apart from, "and then we went to X and did this episode and the screenplay was lovely and the cast was so great, and then we went back to wherever and did the next episode and the screenplay was lovely and the cast was so great! Wait, let me drop a few more names!"

All in all, I expected more.
