Adaptations of Agatha Christie stories are tweaked to accommodate young Mabel West and Arthur Hastings as points of identification for a teen audience. Sixteen-year-old Mabel is Miss Jane Marple's great-niece, and when she finds herself working for Belgian detective Hercule Poirot she has a great opportunity to learn about life as well as detection methods. Poirot's assistant Arthur Hastings, transformed from a middle-aged chap into a handsome youth, is Mabel's love interest in anime versions of The Mysterious Affair at Styles, The ABC Murders, and The 4.50 from Paddington, all licenced from Christie's estate, with bonus historical consultancy provided by a Tokyo University professor. Compare to Emma and The Casebook of Charlotte Holmes. The 1989 BBC live-action series Poirot, starring David Suchet as the detective, previously aired on NHK in 1991 as Meitantei Poirot (Famous Detective Poirot). Note the chance homophony of "Marple" and "Mabel" in Japanese allowing to imply rather more involvement of one than the other-a similar trick was tried in Thunderbirds 2086.
