Bet you didn't know this...in Curtain Poirot's Last Case (1975) he had put his "ampoules" of amyl out of reach and so couldn't administer> Funny by 1975 poppers were all the rave....

I shouldn't think that Agatha was suggesting Hercule was a disco bunny :-) She may have written the novel in 1975, but when was it set?

Written: 1940s - she locked it away in a bank vault (true) The key was stolen by a mysterious oriental lady on a train and then Colonel Codswallop found it in his truss at a house party (fiction) Amyl nitrite was obviously still a medicine in WW2.

There will be a new Poirot out soon....the heirs of Agatha have given the green light for another author to write again...she says:

"Agatha Christie is the greatest crime writer of all time"

\i guess she will set it before he misplaced his poppers! Hooray! More David Suchet camping it up at tea time ;-) Oooh mon ami! ou est le nitrite d'amyl Hastings?

I wonder if Christie saw her detective as camp.....I know what you mean though.

"Recent series of Marple may have gone for some embarrassingly ill-advised modernity by throwing in a few lesbians and suggesting that Miss Marple herself was once a bit of a goer"

Don't watch it but I bet they were a couple of old blue stocking spinsters. Where is this quote from? Marple would be from the 1920 era? when she was in her prime??? Quite a wild time, plenty of Sappho types about as well. That remark "ill-advised modernity" is bullshot of course...of the time.

Missy Marple would be shocked when she finds what is going on in the village hall...or maybe not according to the expert's expert Prof PJ!

Trumpington Village Hall 2013: ‘relationship counselling’ session, on the menu are:

‘how to truly get a bottom’s attention with canes’
‘a place to explore, teach, share and learn about rope’.

"One elderly lady, wearing a skirt and canary-yellow blouse, summed up the mood of the older generation of Trumpington. ‘I do think it’s rather inappropriate,’ she sniffed.

Captain Mainwairing would be horrified! In the new blurb about it there is mention about NOT turning up dressed for the session lol Imagine sitting down for your tea in Honeysuckle Cottage and seeing the servants (slaves) being led across the village green by a lady in leather carrying a horse whip!
Tally ho!!

Esher Claygate, Oxshot, Weybridge and Cobham, are among the most popular places in the country for ‘dogging’

Saturday dinner table:

Divine coq au vin avec pommes puree! Deeelish! I'm full. I'm just taking the dog out for a walk, darling.

We don't have a dog...Oh yes I see, haha.. don't forget to take a prophylactic.

No need I'll just eye ball that couple in purple Ford Capri and fiddle with the old gear stick.

I hope he wears gloves. Can get very chilly at night out on the moors fiddling with gear sticks.

Not so funny if you are really walking a dog....they leave things...yuk!!! Also if you are a handsome fella it can be quite intimidating...I imagine.
