Murder On The Orient Express Detail

Am I wrong in thinking in the Book Murder On The Orient Express The Doctor is not a suspect? Because although I haven't seen the KB Film, one quibble I have about it is that the Doc is a suspect just like in the Suchet Film, Is this one detail I am wrong about?

  • You are correct, Tommy. In the book the doctor wasn't in the car where the murder took place, and the steward eliminated anyone who wasn't in the car.
  • I think the only film version that got the detail right with not making the doctor a suspect was the 1974 film.

    Seems like it.

    Yes, the Suchet and 2017 condensation of the doctor's character is the production team's way of eliminating one character, probably saving a little bit of money and time.
