Dumb Witness (Dramatised) | [Agatha Christie]

Dumb Witness (Dramatised)

As Hercule Poirot sifts through his post one particular morning, he alights upon a letter from an elderly and (as it transpires), exceedingly rich spinster - Miss Emily Arundell. She is clearly in great distress and seeking his help, but doesn’t say why. Her only specific mention is ‘the incident of the dog’s ball’. However, what intrigues Poirot is the date of the communication - it was written two months ago. He persuades Captain Hastings that they must visit the lady with all haste.

Publisher's Summary

As Hercule Poirot sifts through his post one particular morning, he alights upon a letter from an elderly and (as it transpires), exceedingly rich spinster - Miss Emily Arundell. She is clearly in great distress and seeking his help, but doesn’t say why. Her only specific mention is ‘the incident of the dog’s ball’. However, what intrigues Poirot is the date of the communication - it was written two months ago. He persuades Captain Hastings that they must visit the lady with all haste.

On arrival they discover that she has died, apparently of natural causes. But Bob, Miss Arundell’s devoted wire-haired terrier, knows better. And so, soon, does Poirot. John Moffatt, as ever, stars as Hercule Poirot and Simon Williams as Captain Hastings. With music specially composed by Tom Smail.

    Story
    "Classic Poirot and Hastins"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is a good English mystery. It has ungrateful family members, a questionable companion, wacky neighbors and a clever dog.


    What other book might you compare Dumb Witness (Dramatised) to and why?

    Any of the other Poirot and Hastings stories such as Murder on the Links.


    Which character – as performed by John Moffatt and Simon Williams – was your favorite?

    Capt. Hastings by Simon Williams. He brought to life all the boyish enthusiasm of the character. I love his interactions with the dog, Bob. I have been a fan of Simon Williams since he played James on Upstairs, Downstairs.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    If only the dog could talk.


    Any additional comments?

    All the BBC dramatizations are worth listening to.

    "Another excellent performance from John Moffatt"
    Would you listen to Dumb Witness (Dramatised) again? Why?

    Yes I would. It is a great story and the performance brings to life the story as well as being fun and exciting.


    Have you listened to any of John Moffatt and Simon Williams ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to quite a few of John Moffatt's performances has Poirot and this one is certainly up to his usual standards. I have heard Simon Williams in The Mysterious Affair At Styles and enjoyed both of his performances as Captain Hastings.
