Long Description:
At a party held by retired actor, Sir Charles Cartwright, the Reverend Babbington dies suddenly. At the time foul play isn’t suspected. However, when another guest, Sir Bartholomew Strange, dies in the same way at his own party Poirot investigates. The Reverend is exhumed and found to have been poisoned by nicotine, as used by gardeners. There was no trace of nicotine on the Reverend’s glass nor on Sir Bartholomew’s glass. Poirot works out that the glasses would have been switched.

Suspicion falls on the waiter at Sir Bartholomew’s party, who has gone missing. The waiter had shared a joke with Sir Bartholomew before his death, which strikes Poirot as odd. Before Poirot solves the case a third murder, of a sanatorium patient, occurs.

In the end Poirot works out that Sir Charles Cartwright was the murderer. At his own party he handed out the drinks himself. One of them was poisoned, but it did not matter who drank it. Sir Charles was using the occasion to test the method. At Sir Bartholomew’s party Sir Charles dressed up as the butler to administer the poison to Sir Bartholomew. Sir Bartholomew had to die because he knew that Sir Charles was married to a woman in the sanatorium, and that Sir Charles intended to marry again.

Sir Bartholomew’s house was supposed to be Melfort Abbey in Yorkshire, in reality it is Knebworth house. The clips show Poirot and Sir Charles on the way through the gardens to the sanatorium.
