excellent dramatisation

The characters are all true to the book, the story is well paced and the addition of various background noises and occasional musical interludes add to the overall setting.

John Moffat once again brings the character of Poirot to life in a believable and entertaining way.

The story itself is an interesting mix of archaeology, inter-personal relationships and murder.

A Musty Murder

Not the best but not bad. Too many characters in my opinion. Plot was clever but a little far fetched..didnt feel the murderer had a real motive. Sound effects were distracting when characters were speaking. Performance fantastic as always.
