After Poirot pays a routine visit to his dentist, the doctor apparently shoots himself to death a short time later. Chief Inspector Japp appropriately recruits the detective as both witness and consultant.
Philip Jackson who played Japp in this TV adaptation, also played Japp in a BBC radio 4 production of One Two Buckle My Shoe. Poirot was played by John Moffatt
Chief Inspector James Japp:
It's the little chaps that keep things on an even keel - chaps like you and me.
Hercule Poirot: Ah, but there are no "little chaps", Chief Inspector. Particularly not Poirot.
In a scene around 1:10:42, as Poirot (David Suchet) and Blunt (Peter Blythe) stroll through the garden, the audience hears Blunt discussing the work that goes into maintaining his hedges. However, the actor's lips do not move throughout the entire monologue, and therefore the line was presumably added in post-production.
