Murder in the Mews (Episode #102)

KQED Plus: Mon, Apr 29, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

Chief Inspector Japp (Philip Jackson) turns to Poirot for assistance with his investigation into the apparent suicide of a beautiful young woman. The gun was found in her left hand, but the deceased is generally believed to have been right-handed. Was she in fact murdered by a sinister blackmailer? To the despair of keen golfer Hastings (Hugh Fraser), complete novice Poirot insists they play a round together. But Poirot has an ulterior motive- he is watching someone on the golf course.

The Adventure of the Clapham Cook (Episode #101)

KQED Plus: Mon, Apr 22, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

Poirot is unenthusiastic when a Mrs. Todd asks him to find her a cook. He is positively insulted when she proceeds to dismiss him from the case with a one guinea fee for his services. There's no mystery too small for Hercule Poirot, and once he agrees to take on a case he sees it through to a conclusion. Poirot has also realized that there is a great deal more to the cook's disappearance than meets the eye.

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe (Episode #403)

KQED Plus: Mon, Apr 15, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

Hercule Poirot disliked his dentist. But one of his patients liked Mr. Morley even less - and shot him a few moments after Poirot had left his surgery. Was it the unpleasant Greek? The wild young American who looked like a murderer? The rich banker? Or the former actress with the buckle on her shoe?

Death in the Clouds (Episode #402)

KQED Plus: Mon, Apr 8, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

A particularly ingenious murder is committed on the noon flight from Paris to London. Poirot is on board - but unfortunately he's asleep when the killing takes place. It becomes a matter of pride for him to track down the murderer. Returning to Paris, he discovers his chief suspect is a mysterious American - all the more mysterious because there wasn't an American on board.
