Season 2 Episode 2
Murder and a missing flying ace attract the attention of Agatha Christie's detective extraordinaire in this elegant installment from the classic series shown on PBS's Mystery! and A&E. While on holiday in Cornwall, Hercule Poirot (David Suchet) suffers a fall and stumbles onto more than just a turned ankle when he encounters the pretty Nick Buckley, an accident-prone heiress of a local estate and the survivor of several near-fatal mishaps. Poirot suspects more than mere chance is behind these events when strange connections surface between distant relatives, an absent pilot and a local gang of friends. Also starring Hugh Fraser as Captain Hastings and Pauline Moran as Miss Lemon.
