It was mentioned here a little while ago by, i think , Rob that he like the Agatha Christie TV adaptations, well so do i, from the Improbably updated films starring Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple , to the BBC TV Series starring Joan Hickson and the pedantically precise Poirot with David Suchet .

The problem is that if you watch too many of these you soon notice certain , well, repetitions, and slack re - writing that isn't there in the original books !

The wonderful Comedians Mitchell & Webb or their writers have also noticed this and produced a wonderful and Hilarious sketch, yes the Murderer when revealed, does use "Ze Evil Voice" and if a Woman, their "balcon" does seem to enlarge ! it is so regrettable that a Crapophone also features int he sketch - which can be seen here :
