Poirot plans a quiet Christmas in London until learning that it also will be a cold one, owing to his flat's broken boiler. When a wealthy old man calls for the detective's help, Poirot opts for a working holiday at the man's well-heated country estate. No warmth exudes from the home's occupants, however, and Poirot winds up with a murder to solve, family politics to unravel, and shocking revelations from the past to sort out. For help he turns to Chief Inspector Japp, who is grateful to be rescued from Christmas with the in-laws. Angelic choir voices and English Christmas cheer punctuate this special movie-length version of the popular TV series seen on PBS and A&E. David Suchet stars as the quintessential Poirot, perfect from his distinctive mustache to his spotless spats. Crime-solving was never so tidy or so much fun! Philip Jackson as Inspector Japp.
