    Well they don't have to have the English Lawyers Uncle or the American Lawyers Business Partner (Played by Sam Wannemaker in the Ustinov Film amd they don't have to have Miss Robson's Mother and if they are going to have Poirot going onto the ship after there has been a Murder there is no need to have Race which means that rules out the person Race is after in the book but if Race is in it that rules out the English Lawyer like in the Ustinov Film and if things start on The Boat gone are Linnette's Servants apart from Miss Bourgette

    It will still disgruntle people because who is a minor character to one person may not be to another, The Film didn't have the Allerton's who I think are important and the DS version didn't have Miss Bowers who I think is important  but the Film had the American Lawyers Partner and Linnette's Servants none of whom are important.
