Hugh Fraser does it again
The Mystery of the Blue Train is one of my favourite Christie novels, and I think Hugh Fraser did a wonderful job mimicking David Suchet's Poirot voice, as well as making the women sound normal instead of overly feminine.
And Then There Were None, narrated by the same actor, but with no Poirot, so no fallback character. A wonderfully creepy rendition of Justice Wargrave.
Wonderfully varied in voice, with each character distinct by sound alone, and his natural voice is perfect for narrating.
When Katherine tells Poirot she can't go on, Hugh Fraser captures the distress in her voice in a perfect, yet understated, manner.
Would recommend to anyone and everyone - thoroughly enjoyable!
