WOSU TV watchers get a double dose of David Suchet and Inspector Poirot this Sunday. First, Suchet steps out of character and hops aboard the Orient Express at 8pm. Then, at 9m, he steps back into character as Agatha Christie’s famous detective in “Murder on the Orient Express.”
From PBS:

Celebrated actor David Suchet sets aside his alter ego Hercule Poirot to step aboard one of the world’s most iconic trains in the documentary “David Suchet On The Orient Express: A Masterpiece Special.”

From London, Suchet travels to Calais in northern France to board the Venice Simplon Orient Express, and begins his 2,000-mile journey through six countries, with a breathtaking stop in Venice on the way to Prague. The delightful Suchet revels in the artistry and beauty of the train, and explores its attraction for Agatha Christie, who used it as the setting for one of her most recognized novels.
