That was one of my criticisms I had of some of the filmed adaptations that were done for the 21st century BBC films.
*Body in the Library did not have it and they changed the plot to include it in the film
*Murder is Announced does not have it directly said for the characters of Miss Hinchcliffe and Miss Murgatroyd but the film made it blatent.
*Nemisis did not have the murderer' motive as gay but yet the last filmed adaptation made it distastefully so !
*The Moving Finger's 2006 adaptation made one of the characters fey
*The 2010 Mirror Crack'd made reference to it--almost in a blackmailing way by Miss Marple to the male secretary towards the end of the film (very uncharacteristic of Miss Marple!)
and in a recent re-watching of the Poirot Cards on the Table I noted that the murderer's motivation were changed to be of a homosexual nature.
Not sure why they deemed it necessary to change the plotlines.
