BBC Radio Drama: Agatha Christie – Poirot – Death in the Clouds – John Moffett, Philip Jackson

30/03/2020

Radio dramatisation with John Moffett as Poirot.

It is 1935 and Hercule Poirot’s horror of flying is compounded when a fellow passenger on a cross-channel aeroplane is found murdered. Dramatised by Michael Bakewell. From seat No.9, Hercule Poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers. Over to his right sat a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite; ahead, in seat No.13, sat a Countess with a poorly-concealed cocaine habit; across the gangway in seat No.8, a detective writer was being troubled by an aggressive wasp. What Poirot did not yet realize was that behind him, in seat No.2, sat the slumped, lifeless body of a woman.
