Hercule Poirot - Third Girl

The latest installment of Hercule Poirot airs tonight July 18 on PBS Masterpiece and along with iconic David Suchet in the title role, we'll also see two actors from Lost in Austen - Jemima Rooper as Norma Restarick and Tom Mison as David Baker.

Synopsis from PBS of episode Third Girl:
Norma Restarick, a young and tormented heiress, visits Hercule Poirot with an alarming cry — "I thought you might be able to save me!" She thinks she may have committed a murder, but before Poirot can inquire further, she's gone. Soon thereafter, Poirot and his fiction-writer friend Ariadne Oliver learn of a death — Norma's childhood nanny, apparently a suicide. But Norma, haunted by memories of her childhood and her own mother's suicide, is convinced she's committed the heinous crime. Norma's family and circle of friends fear for her sanity. But as Poirot delves into this compelling case and Norma's tragic past, he begins to fear for her life. Norma may be in imminent danger, but can Poirot devise a plot to lure a killer and save the fragile Norma? Based on the novel by Agatha Christie, Third Girl stars David Suchet as Hercule Poirot and ZoĆ« Wanamaker as Ariadne Oliver.

  3. Interestingly, another pair of "Lost in Austen" actors -- Christina Cole and Tom Riley -- are featured in the new Poirot episode "Appointment with Death".

  5. Hi
    I have a somewhat bizzard question, but i think this would be the perfect place to get an answer.
    My husband is a woodworker and we have been looking for a unusual design for a bed.
    When i saw Third Girl, i was AMAZED by the furniture in Poirot's appartment.
    Would anyone have information about the wood funiture in this appartment, or at least a hint to where i could find more info.

    Thank you kinldy
    Diane
