The Dead Man's Mirror (Episode #507)

KQED Plus: Mon, Dec 10, 2012 -- 8:00 PM

Poirot is keen on an Art Deco mirror, but is outbid at auction by Gervase Chevenix who asks Poirot to find out if he is being defrauded - offering him the mirror as a fee. Poirot travels down to Chevenix's house, but, before he can begin the fraud investigation, his client is found shot dead and his "fee" shattered into a thousand pieces. A note beside the body which reads simply "sorry" is Poirot's only obvious piece of evidence.

The Chocolate Box (Episode #506)

KQED Plus: Mon, Dec 3, 2012 -- 8:00 PM

Accompanied by Poirot, Inspector Japp is visiting Brussels where he is to receive the "Branche d'Or" for his services to Belgium. A remark of Commissaire de Police Chantalier brings back memories of a case which Poirot "failed" to solve more than 20 years ago. The very notion is plainly ridiculous - and Poirot amusedly turns over in his mind the fascinating story of the liberal politician and his fateful chocolate box.
