Poirot

Spoiler alert.

Just finished watching Dead Man’s Mirror with David Suchet as Poirot (but of course, mon ami).  I found Miss Lingard’s final ploy really weak and think the story would’ve been much more plausible if Miss Lingard had confessed to save her daughter and then committed suicide. Ruth was obviously going to find out at some point and the whole spirit sham was just implausible.  Otherwise, very entertaining story and the costumes were scrumptious.  I’m always pleased when Poirot’s vanity is challenged as it was with Gervase Chevenix (although his superior detective skills are confirmed in the end).
