Silver Spring, MD, July 21, 2014 – Called “One of the great TV achievements—and great TV performances—of the past 30 years” (The Telegraph), Agatha Christie’s Poirot, led by fan favorite David Suchet, remains one of the most beloved television series of all time. As the premier streaming service for British TV in North America, Acorn TV is excited to have the exclusive broadcast rights to Agatha Christie’s Poirot’s final three feature-length mysteries, including Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case. The final series, Series 13, features five TV movies and begins with The Big Four and Dead Man’s Folly available on Acorn TV beginning July 28 and Aug. 4, the day after their PBS broadcast. The final three mysteries will not be on PBS and available ONLY on Acorn TV, beginning Aug. 11 for Elephants Can Remember, Aug. 18 for Labours of Hercules, and Aug. 25 for Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case. Thereafter, all five new mysteries will be available ONLY on Acorn TV, along with all the 65 previous episodes.

Since its debut on television in 1989, Agatha Christie’s famous Belgian detective has put his brilliant intellect and fastidious nature to the test as he solves the most mystifying crimes of the Art Deco era. Brimming with opulent 1930s period details and pitch-perfect performances, these final lavish adaptations feature guest stars Iain Glen (Jack Taylor, Games of Thrones), Helen Baxendale (Friends), and Philip Glenister (Life on Mars), as well as fan favorite Hugh Fraser as Capt. Hastings in the series finale.
