almaviva90: (Poirot and Hastings)
Hurrah, just started watching Cat Among the Pigeons from Poirot and have just realised that the screenwriter of this particular episode is none other than Mark Gatiss who played Mycroft Holmes in the new Sherlock series which he also co-wrote. And no wonder, I'm enjoying the episode so far...it has this component of humour despite the subject matter which has been lacking in many of the recent Poirot adaptations and which was seen quite often in the earlier ones, aka the ones made from 1989-1999 with the rest of the gang (Hastings, Japp and Miss Lemon). Oh, and there's another brilliant thing...the person responsible for the music decided to put back Christopher Gunning's Poirot theme back in some parts of the episode. Ah, it feels like the good old days (I was quite sad not to hear the theme for such a long time to be honest...it really gives us a real sense that we're watching a genuine Poirot episode).

And Gatiss has also written another episode (Hallowe'en Party) while also appearing in Appointment with Death. Haven't got those episodes yet but I'll definitely keep an eye out for them.
