Poirot, Agatha Christie’s 1.06 Triangle at Rhodes (1989)

While Poirot isn’t the only one to notice the eternal triangle between a habitual-bride and somebody’s else husband while in Rhodes but he is the only one to warn the philanderer’s wife to leave Rhodes if she values her life. However, the whole thing seems to work out amicably before Poirot leaves for home.

6/10

Composer Christopher Gunning overdoes the localization and it renders significant portions of this episode rather irritating. However, it’s beautifully produced, well-acted and Suchet is charming, handsome, gracious and charismatic as Poirot.

This Poirot, Agatha Christie’s episode contains mild adult dialogue and unpleasant scene.
