Actor David Suchet as Hercule Poirot has been tantalizing fans for more than twenty years. Now, Hercule Poirot: Series XI offers three new whodunits in the 2011 season. The death — or murder — of a vicar sets the stage at the party of a famous actor in Three Act Tragedy (June 19); time stands still when a young woman is accused of stabbing a mysterious man to death in The Clocks (June 26); and a dark and stormy night is the scene of a macabre murder in Hallowe'en Party (July 3), adapted by Mark Gatiss (Sherlock).
