The ABC Murders: Hercule and the new Inspector  Season 1, Ep 1

Rupert Grint was the surprise star, here. Malkovich being stilted and precise suits the character of Poirot, but put him together with Crome, they warm up to each other in an organic and compelling way, and it's on Grint's natural talent as a supporting actor. I would watch a series based on Poirot and Crome discussing the weather, so good.
