[edit] Information

On the Orient Express David Suchet boards the world's most iconic train to unravel the mystery of the Orient Express, for a brand new ITV1 documentary. David Suchet on the Orient Express features the actor immersing himself in the romance and escapism of a train immortalised in the Agatha Christie novel, Murder on the Orient Express, whose protagonist, detective Hercule Poirot, he has so memorably portrayed on screen. David resolves to uncover why the Orient Express has been the world’s most talked about train for over a century and why Agatha Christie, the world’s most celebrated crime author, chose the train for her most ingenious murder mystery. On a journey that takes him from London Victoria, through Venice and Austria and onto Prague, David experiences the glamour, history and luxury of the train, while making new friends along the way. David meets the train's staff to discover how they keep the train on track and mingles with his fellow passengers to experience the ups and downs of 1920’s style luxury as 21st century travellers sacrifice speed and space for charm and elegance. The film draws on archive material to conjure up the rich history surrounding the Orient Express, from its inaugural 'Express d'Orient' journey across Europe on October 4th 1883, its glamorous heyday in the early 20th century when it was a magnet for royalty as well as spies including Mata Hari and Robert Baden Powell, to its fascinating role in both World Wars. David also traces its post-war decline, describing how competition from cheap air travel led to its closure in the late 1970s before its current revival.
