    A fine director. Have fond memories of All My Sons and, of course, the Rickman/Duncan Private Lives. RIP.

      Very fine indeed. I wish I could have seen Suchet and Wanamaker, both such exceptional actors.

    I never watched Poirot unless a friend was in it. Like you, I was indifferent until I saw him in The Last Confession at the Haymarket and was astounded by how good he was. ‘Blown away’ would also describe my reaction.

    If you want to see All My Sons it is available free to download on digital theatre this weekend. You need the code HDALLMYSONS. I’ve just downloaded it.

        I’m having no joy with Digital Theatre. The links don’t seem to be working, even if I wanted to buy. Whether I click on ‘more info’ or ‘buy now’, it simply takes me back to the top of that page. Any ideas?
