Agatha Christie Death In The Clouds

(4,746 Sterne; 140 Bewertungen)

Agatha Christie's Death in the Clouds Dramatised by Michael Bakewell. It is 1935 and Hercule Poirot's horror of flying is compounded when a fellow passenger on a cross-channel aeroplane is found murdered. Poirot: John Moffatt Lady Horbury: Carolyn Jones Chief Insp Japp: Philip Jackson Fournier: Geoffrey Whitehead Daniel: Murray Melvin Jane: Teresa Gallagher Norman: Ben Crowe Jean: Andrew Harrison Dr Bryant: Bruce Purchase Elise: Liza Sadovy Anne: Priyanga Elan Steward/Clerk: Stephen Critchlow Director: Enyd Williams The Saturday Play:   Sat 3rd May 2003 14:30 on BBC Radio 4 FM From seat No.9, Hercule Poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers. Over to his right sat a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite; ahead, in seat No.13, sat a Countess with a poorly-concealed cocaine habit; across the gangway in seat No.8, a detective writer was being troubled by an aggressive wasp. What Poirot did not yet realize was that behind him, in seat No.2, sat the slumped, lifeless body of a woman. Hercule Poirot hates flying, so it's almost a welcome diversion when one of his fellow passengers on a cross-channel flight is murdered. Cue 90 minutes during which you will suspect every one and have your brain cells mixed into a variety of cerebral kedgeree by the number of red herrings on offer, until the complex case is solved. All I will say is, never stay on a plane that's also carrying a wasp! (Jane Anderson, radio editor)
