Season 11 Episode 2
At the Meadowbank School, Miss Bulstrode (Harriet Walter, Atonement) counts girls from England's finest families among her young charges. And she treats them all as equals--even the royalty, like Princess Shaista of Ramat, a political refugee under constant threat from revolutionaries in her country. Yet, to the headmisstress's friend Hercule Poirot (David Suchet), the school seems a world in microcosm, full of "hopes, dreams, fears, and secrets." The famous detective delves into those secrets after a vicious murder shocks the students and staff. As the attacks escalate, he aims to find the perpetrator before more students leave and threated the school's survival.
