David Suchet and 'Poirot' fans can rejoice; it's been announced that the much-loved actor will return next year to reprise his most famous role for the final five times. Back in March it was revealed that the show's network, Itv, were to cut the series after 22 years with just a handful of the original books written by Agatha Christie still to be adapted.
However, in terrific news for the 65 year-old and his legion of cult fans that have followed the show since its beginnings in 1989, Itv have now decided to run the final five films. "I'm more than delighted to be reprising my role as Poirot. It's been my life's ambition to bring this amazing canon of works to completion on Itv," exclaimed a clearly delighted Suchet, "Poirot is a brilliant, yet profoundly complicated character and I've always loved playing him. He's considerate, with a love of elegance and precision, but he is also so maddeningly frustrating to play as he's so vain and pedantic. What endears me to him the most is his endless love of people."
The Press Association reports that the latest film 'Clocks' will be on TV this Christmas and will feature Anna Massey, playing one of her last ever roles before her unfortunate death this July, aged 73.
