Mark Aldridge will give a talk entitled ‘Hercule Poirot – A Life in Crime with an introduction by Judy Dewey, Wallingford Museum historian and curator. 

In this talk, Dr Mark Aldridge looks at the development of Hercule Poirot since his first appearance in The Mysterious Affair at Styles in 1920. He explores Christie’s relationship with the character, and her feelings about his appearances on stage and screen. Mark also looks at different portrayals of the detective across the media, including some unusual and lesser-known characterisations. This talk is based on research undertaken for Mark’s book Agatha Christie’s Poirot: The Greatest Detective in the World, published by HarperCollins. He is currently working on a companion Miss Marple volume, to be published in 2024.
