Poirot continues on Masterpiece

Tomorrow on Masterpiece Mystery, Poirot continues with a brand-new episode entitled The Clocks, based on the novel by Agatha Christie. Here's a bit about the story:
In Dover on the cusp of war, cloak meets dagger when Hercule Poirot is called on to uncover a German spy network and exonerate a beautiful stenographer accused of a grisly murder. David Suchet stars as Poirot in a new episode of an Agatha Christie whodunit, The Clocks, airing Sunday, June 26, 2011 on MASTERPIECE MYSTERY!
I'm really looking forward to this story, especially since it sounds vaguely reminscent of The 39 Steps!

Hmmm...isn't this a rerun? Because I do remember watching this episode on YouTube - I mean, I watched the episode based on the mystery "The Clocks"...but IDK...

Can't wait for the review!

@Alexandra - If memory serves, this episode aired in the UK last year, so maybe someone uploaded it to YouTube and that's how you saw it (if we're talking about the same version)?

Alexandra said...

Aha. That's probably what happened. If it's the same version, as you said...I know there was a few episodes that had alternate (or UK) titles, which confused me a bit...I guess we'll see. :-)
