David Suchet is not just the brother of Classic FM's weekday morning presenter John Suchet – as grand a claim as that may be – but he's also known to millions as one of the most iconic detectives in television history, Hercule Poirot. David joins Charlotte to talk about life as Agatha Christie's famous crime-solving creation and what it was like to film Poirot's final episode.

I write this in the week that the final episode is due to be broadcast on British television of that long running series “Poirot”.

The character, created by Agatha Christie and played by David Suchet, is one of those “you love them or hate them” detectives.

Agatha Christie’s grandson Mathew has been reported as saying: “Personally, I regret very much that she (Agatha Christie) never saw David Suchet. I think that visually he is much the most convincing and perhaps he manages to convey to the viewer just enough of the irritation that we always associate with the perfectionist, to be convincing.”

There is no doubt that the nation took this portrayal to their hearts, which resulted in the series running from 1989 to the year 2013.

In theatrical terms curtains go up as well as down and in the private life of David Suchet there was a moment when the curtain went up on a new episode in his life — his discovery of Christianity.

David touched upon this and his acting career when we met at the height of the series popularity when he was appearing at the Northcott Theatre in Exeter.

Actor David Suchet has had his turn on the stage, television and the big screen. But despite roles in many films and more than a decade with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Suchet is best known as Agatha Christie’s well-loved but somewhat disagreeable Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot. He first starred as the mustachioed sleuth on British television more than 20 years ago. The latest Blu-ray release featuring Suchet, Murder On The Orient Express, has just come out. Though he’s been playing Poirot for more than two decades, Suchet still remembers his very first scene as the detective. “The camera was on my very shiny patent leather shoes,” he tells NPR’s Neal Conan. Then, slowly, it panned up his legs to reveal his striped trousers, morning coat, gray waistcoat, bow tie, wing collar and “of course, the famous mustache.”


David Suchet joins us now from the BBC and Broadcasting House in London. And thanks very much for being with us today.

Mr. SUCHET: Hello.
