Poirot fans are eagerly anticipating the next instalment of the hit TV drama which airs on ITV later this week, Dead Man's Folly will be one of the last starring actor David Suchet.

David Suchet went to school in Wellington in Somerset, and filmed his latest scenes at Agatha Christie's former holiday home in Devon.

The story starts when Hercule Poirot, famed Belgian detective, is invited to attend a murder mystery fête, but when the murder becomes all too real, Poirot must begin his investigation.

The location for the story was inspired by Agatha Christie's holiday home, Greenway House in Devon… Greenway was even used in the filming and this is where David Suchet played the famous role for the last time. Belinda Smith, National Trust said:

The venue is a treasure trove of Christie memorabilia.

In 1938 Agatha Christie bought Greenway House, during the war it was requisitioned and used by American officers and at one point she thought she might have to sell it to pay a tax bill.

But she managed to keep her summer retreat by writing a few more best sellers.

The house now owned by the National Trust was even kept open during filming. Belinda Smith said:
