BWW Recap:  CURTAIN: POIROT'S LAST CASE Packs a PunchBWW Recap: CURTAIN: POIROT'S LAST CASE Packs a Punch

This long-awaited episode, a career-capping achievement for Suchet, does not disappoint; it is among the best of the more recent Poirot episodes, and is relatively faithful to Christie's novel, written in the 1940's and published in 1975. While multiple suspicious characters and blind alleyways abound in this 90 minute adaptation, the plot does not rely as heavily on familiar Christie parlor tricks such as unbelievable double identities.
