David Suchet misses playing Hercule Poirot.

The 71-year-old actor played the Belgian detective in the Agatha Christie adaptations for 25 years from 1989 to 2013 and was the final actor to star in ITV's "Poirot", and says thoughts of the character still leave him feeling nostalgic.

Speaking on "Lorraine" on Tuesday (02.05.17), he said: "I do miss him. He was a great friend. I was playing that man for 25 years and you develop with him.

"Even now I could take him out and spend the whole day with him looking through his eyes. I know everything about him. The way he travels, what he eats. Everything.

"I have his last moustache in a little frame and I was presented with my walking cane which is a great momentum."

He said: "When my agent rang up and said they'd like you to be in "Doctor Who" I said "yes". She said "do you want to read the script first?" I said, "no, I just want to be in one."

Although his incredible talent has got him where he is today, David believes he owes a lot to playing Poirot because it's allowed him to take different routes in his career.

He explained: "I have been very lucky. I love my life. I say my life is playing in a great sand pit. I have the greatest fun I could possibly have. It's interesting a lot of people will up to me in the street saying they enjoyed my performances. It's different things that people will land on. Poirot is key."

David has also recently been part of "Decline and Fall" - an adaptation of the Evelyn Waugh novel - starring Jack Whitehall and Eva Longoria.

The actor said he really enjoyed reading the script and was thrown off the set for enjoying watching the other actors perform while filming.

He said: "Reading the script took me right back. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Maybe too much. I was thrown off the set for enjoying it too much.

"I was watching the other actors and I fell about laughing."
