THE famous TV series Poirot, which is based on Agatha Christie’s stories, was partly filmed by ITV outside Surrey County Hall opposite the KU Penrhyn Road campus.
KU students watched Poirot’s cast as they walked along Penrhyn Road dressed in 1930s attire, followed by an entourage of cameramen, make-up artists and a long procession of elegant vintage cars.
Natasha Bayford, spokeswoman for ITV, said: “One day filming took place at Surrey County Hall as this particular film, entitled Curtain, required a court room setting and this location offered us the perfect setting to film in.”
Standing out from the ITV film crew was the BAFTA nominee and award-winning actor, David Suchet, who plays the leading character, Poirot.
