Agatha Christie’s Poirot s10e03 After the Funeral (2005)
Poirot investigates the death of a man who, after his funeral, is claimed to have been murdered by one of his slightly dotty relatives, Cora Gallaccio. Her rambling is dismissed but a bizarre and unexpected will proves to be an appetiser for the main course: the brutal murder of Cora Gallaccio the day after the funeral.
Christie’s whodunit has such an unforeseen solution that it drags this adaptation back up to average after declining slowly through inactivity and ripe acting during the second hour. Despite all the period production design, this outing, like most of these two-hour adaptations, simply has no atmosphere or charm.
