BWW Recap: AGATHA CHRISTIE's BIG FOUR Strike Again in Poirot Mystery
by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Jul 30, 2014

PBS' Masterpiece Mystery raises the curtain on the final episodes of their adaptations of Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot adventures, starring David Suchet, with their 90 minute version of THE BIG FOUR, based on a novel originally penned by Christie in 1927. However, anyone familiar with the novel should be prepared for significant plot changes and a sentimentally-tinged (but underused) cast of characters in this production, which is indeed theatrically over the top.
