| Murder in Mesopotamia??
Worst adaptation ever! If screenwriters have such wonderful ideas about how Christie should have written her stories, they are more than welcome to write their own books! This story was nicely narrated by a nurse and Poirot was supposed to enter the scene a little bit later. Hastings did not appear in the original. I gather that all the unfortunate changes of this adaptation are for viewers to "enjoy" the duo. If you consider the narrative structure of the original, the changes were quite important, and they totally failed to capture the novel's atmosphere . Really, this show changing the endings, the new adaptations of Miss Marple doing the same thing and even the Poirot and Marple manga!!! I guess the grandson has to bleed the copyrights dry before they expire...
