David Suchet has shrugged off Poirot toÂ play...another detective. HeÂ explains why.
David Suchet isÂ playing mother. Immaculately dressed asÂ one would expect from the man who has made Agatha Christieâ€™s natty Belgian detective Hercule Poirot his own, heâ€™s wandering around aÂ BBC meeting room, pouring the tea, serving the biscuits and smiling. â€śEveryone takes meÂ soÂ seriously,â€ť heÂ grumbles, stirring his cup. â€śEverybody IÂ know takes meÂ seriously. Iâ€™m actually desperate toÂ doÂ some comedy.â€ť
