Zoë Wanamaker returns as Poirot's unwitting sidekick Ariadne Oliver and the pair are joined by a cast including Sean Pertwee, Sinead Cusack, Tom Ellis, Martin Jarvis, Sam Kelly and Stephanie Leonidas.

'Dead Man's Folly' is written by Nick Dear, directed by Tom Vaughan and produced by David Boutler.

The book was published in 1956 and centres around a house inspired by Christie's former holiday home Greenway, now a National Trust-owned property.

While it has already been shot, the last film to air will be 'Curtain; Poirot's Last Case'.

Suchet was cast as Poirot for ITV in 1987, shooting 'The Adventure of the Clapham Cook' the following year for broadcast on January 8, 1989.
