Greenway - Agatha Christies holiday home

David Suchet donates Poirot props to Torquay museum

David Suchet, the legendary television actor who has played the character of Poirot for the last 25 years, recently surprised staff at Torquay Museum when he visited the new and improved Agatha Christie gallery.

Acorn productions Ltd, the production company that created the Poirot television show, has donated a number of props from the television show to Torquay Museum, including Poirot's desk and walking stick. These new additions are just a small part of the donation that the production company has made, and many of those who have enjoyed a holiday in South Devon will be happy to hear that the museum's wonderful collection of Agatha Christie-related objects is getting even bigger.

Officially, David Suchet was in Torquay to film 'Dead Man's Folly', some of which will be filmed at Greenway, Agatha Christie's holiday home near Brixham. David enjoyed looking through the new collection, and a short film of his visit to Torquay Museum shows the actor meeting excited staff.
