Agatha Christie was sick of Poirot—grandson

Agatha Christie was sick of Poirot—grandson -, Philippine News for Filipinos
"Christie considered the diminutive, stiff-moustached gastronome as her "bread and butter" but would grumble about having to churn out "yet another Poirot," Mathew Pritchard told Radio Times magazine.

"She was never short of ideas for books but some of these ideas were inappropriate for Poirot, so she was very keen to exorcise herself of him by writing different stories with new characters," he said.

"But her agents and publishers, who were in charge of the pounds and pence, were very keen on Poirot – he was her most popular character.""
I've read a lot of Agatha Christie's books most of them when I was in high school, Poirot is still my favorite. I can imagine her being sick of the man but I am glad she still wrote those books.
