Tomorrow on Masterpiece Mystery...

Tomorrow on Masterpiece Mystery we get the premiere of Murder on the Orient Express. While this story may feel overly familiar since it's one of Agatha Christie's most famous (and often adapted tales), this is the first time David Suchet has played Hercule Poirot in this story. And since in my view Suchet IS Poirot, well, this is long overdue. Here's some info about the broadcast:
Hercule Poirot solves the greatest case of his career aboard the world's most glamorous train in Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, premiering Sunday, July 11, 2010, on MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! Star David Suchet is joined by a first-class rail car full of great actors, including Eileen Atkins, Barbara Hershey and Hugh Bonneville.
This is truly an all-star adaptation. In addition to Atkins, Hershey, and Bonneville, this version also features performances from Toby Jones, David Morrissey, and SAMUEL WEST! Excuse the excitement on the latter, but I've loved Sam West for years. :)
