To be fair a lot of Adaptations of Agatha Christie books in recent years has not done that.
I thought that is what we were doing Griselda, If you applaud what Sophie Hannah did and it transports you back to that time you are entitled to say that but by the same token if you disapprove of her Doing it, disapprove of Matthew Pritchard allowing her to do it and if you have read it the book and dislike it you should be able to say that too, if you think that you are being criticised for applauding the idea and for liking the book or think you are being criticised for hating the Idea and the book perhaps a Forum of any king is not for you.
I can't understand why anyone would want another Poirot book let alone read one because Agatha Christie killed him off and so the only possible reason to write another is to use him as a Cash Cow and why a True Fan of Agatha Christie would want to encourage That is beyond my Comprehension.
With Bond it is a different matter, perhaps because the only Bond Film I have sat through from start to finish is the George Lazenby one and partly because I just think of the name James Bond As A Code-name.I have never read one of The Books by Anthony Horowitz featuring Holmes but would because when Conan Doyle died Holmes hadn't been killed off.
I have read many Agatha Christie books over and over again and I get enjoyment from reading them again, with 2 Poirot Books I preferred them 2nd time round, I think it is like a picture, I sometimes get something new every time.

This is going to be tough for me; I'm a purist and do not want to read a Poirot story not penned by AC, but it sounds so good!
Noone is forcing you to read the Book Miss Jasmine, I am not planning to
