Excellent memoir. Suchet's story reminds me of other actors who have embodied fictional roles (Brett's Sherlock Holmes, Hiddleston's Loki, etc.) that could muddy an actor's sense of self.

Many, many actors have portrayed Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot over the years, but for a huge number of fans, David Suchet is THE quintessential Poirot. Suchet played the part over a period of 25 years, and in this book he explains how he approached playing the Belgian sleuth, and how Poirot became a huge part of his life.

Each chapter more or less covers a series of the show, giving details of each book they were filming per episode, who else was appearing in it with him and outlining the basic plots (importantly however, there aren’t any spoilers revealed for anyone who might feel inspired to watch the series after reading the book!)

Suchet talks about how he came to be very protective of the character and was determined to portray him according to how Agatha Christie wrote him, going to far as write an extensive lists of character traits and foibles which he referred to time and again while filming. Indeed, he seemed to be become almost obsessive about it and often refers to Poirot as though he were a real living person rather than a fictional creation.

He also describes the other acting jobs that he took on between series of Poirot – after all he did not always know whether the show was going to be renewed and he had to earn his living.

It’s an enjoyable and easy to read book which did make me want to watch all of the Poirot films. If I was to nitpick, I might say that it could have done with a bit of editing as there is some repetition, and it feels as though there is an element of humble-bragging throughout; then again when writing about what critics were saying about the show, if they were pretty much all enthusiastic and complimentary, how can anyone write it without expressing those favourable opinions?!

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to fans of David Suchet, Agatha Christie, or Hercule Poirot.

A very readable autobiography of the relationship between the actor David Suchet and his television portrayal of Hercule Poirot from 1988 to 2013, which is very enjoyably filled with anecdotes from the production of the short stories and books by Agatha Christie.
I read this quickly, and so was a little irritated by the repetition of some themes and notes of thanks, usually near the end of a chapter. But these are minor quibbles about a book in which Suchet generously regales us with stories about how he created the character on screen and the circumstances around the filming of many of the episodes.… (mere)

Found some of the minor characters' voices slightly caricatured, compared to his other Gospel readings
