In this epic episode we discuss three adaptations of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express starring his most famous character, Hercule Poirot. We talk about our history with Agatha Christie’s stories, Belgium, how the adaptations portray Poirot and which one of them truly captures the full potential of this particular crime story. Because of Poirot’s famous country of origin, we thought a great change to invite our friend Vincent Gebruers and give his local perspective on these adaptations.
