David Suchet writes with tremendous warmth and sincerity about his most famous alter ego... (Paul Whitelaw Metro 2013-12-05)
Présentation de l'éditeur
In the summer of 2013 David Suchet will film 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 reading for Poirot fans all over the world.--Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché.

I had read some if Agatha Christie's books and saw one or two of the Poirot movies but did not become such an avid fan until Mr. Suchet added such charm to Poirot's character. Now I shall never say "Good Bye" to my dear Belgian friend. When I leave for work with a slightly mismatched pair of gloves, I hear Poirot's voice "One must never let one's self go Hastings" and I go back inside the house for the matching glove. Hopefully, Mr. Suchet has added a little of Poirot in most of us.
My first time eating a mango was after Poirot's demonstration and now I have the directions and delightful story on page 117.
ITV people complain of expense to make the Poirot series - Please keep in mind the money brought it. I have purchased so many things connected with Poirot since the series began. The Christopher Gunning Cds, books, tote bags, Poirot and Agatha Christie charm bracelets, "Death on the Orient Express" earrings to name a few. I dislike reality TV and wouldn't own a TV if it wasn't for quality programs such as these. I hope the brilliant screenwriters, producers and directors mentioned in this book will bring Poirot back to life and continue with Miss Marple and other Agatha Christie stories.
But he came back, as strong as ever. Pretty remarkable for a role that he was advised by his brother to best avoid: "I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole... Poirot's a bit of a joke, a buffoon. It's not you at all."
The point, of course, is that Suchet is not Poirot; Suchet made himself Poirot. And he did it with such respect that he raised the character above the more comic film interpretations that preceded him.
This book is full of anecdotes, remembrances and musings on how Suchet approached the part. Sometimes it approaches the edge of saccharine, but I always enjoyed it. I'll leave you with one last story. In the episode, "The Royal Ruby", Poirot shows another character how to cut a mango. The character asks him how he learned that skill and Poirot replies, "A certain duke taught me."
The demonstration and reference were not in the original script. Suchet added them after he had lunch at Buckingham Palace. And a "certain" Duke demonstrated for him.
Recommended reading, refreshing and pleasing.
If you haven't watched the final series of Poirot yet, the DVD is now available from the BBC - 5 stars! And it has an interview with David Suchet as a DVD Bonus Extra:
