December 15, 2021 9:26 AM - Season 3, Episode 7 - Subscribe

Chief Inspector Japp seeks Poirot's help with a series of unsolved jewel thefts, and during the investigation Poirot falls in love and finds a criminal intellect which stretches his own little grey cells to the limit. Poirot spends all of his time with the beautiful and clever Countess Rossakoff, leaving Hastings and Miss Lemon to do all the detective work for once.

I liked this one a fair bit. The cyrillic clue was quite fun, I loved Poirot clearly being infatuated. Nice too that it's about jewels and not murder for something that lets him and the Countess interact. I'm always leery of whenever Poirot lets the criminal off because it seems to arbitrary to his nature, but worth it here I think.

So, she’s Poirot’s “That woman”, ie Irene Adler.

Dialog: “I had a house like this once in Petrograd. First a house. Then a wing in the house. Then a room in the wing. And now, nothing.” [filmed at Englefield House, Berkshire]

Also, “Inspector Snap”

BP: Lady Runcorn born Beatrice Palmerston. Bernard Parker. And Captain Hastings “never got past the Russian alphabet” [sound of clue dropping with a clang]

The filming location for Hardman’s house, I do love that they seek out appropriate period houses but that narrow upstairs hallway really bugged me.
