Hugh Fraser is Captain Hastings in BBC Television's productions of the Hercule Poirot stories. As it turns out, he can also read a Hercule Poirot story very well indeed. For BBC fans, his Poirot sounds remarkably like David Suchet's version of the role--short, round, precise, and Belgian. He also gives oral definition to the other widely varying characters— everyone from a ride-to-the-hounds country fellow to an impoverished, very particular retired nanny. It all concerns the death of famous painter Amyas Crane. Sixteen years earlier, his wife was imprisoned for murdering him. She died in prison. Her now grown daughter believes that her mother may have been innocent. But was she? Poirot, ably supported by Hugh Fraser, will find out.
