After a brief hiatus earlier this month, Masterpiece Mystery returns tonight with the first of two new (new to the U.S., at any rate) mysteries starring David Suchet as Agatha Christie's incomparable detective, Hercule Poirot.
From the Masterpiece website:
With his signature walking stick and gloves, Belgian super sleuth Hercule Poirot (David Suchet) is back exercising his "little grey cells" in two new cases.
