Hercule Poirot… would travel with the very best Egyptian cotton sheets from Italian label Frette. And a butler to iron them, of course. Poirot has survived his reincarnation, Dr Who like, through various actors. My favourites are Peter Ustinov in the 1978 film of Death on the Nile [above] and David Suchet from the BBC drama series [below]. Buy the DVD.
