Why in Database: Poirot is a 70-episode series, focusing on the title character and adapting all the works of Agatha Christie in which he appeared, all kinds of books and stories.

In season 2, episode 4, of The Cornish Mystery is about Chinese omens and hexagrams. Hastings says that “fortune telling” for Poirot says about ten pairs of tortoises that cannot stop him, and tortoises are considered as magical animals, which means that even magic cannot stop that detective.

– 10 pairs of tortoises cannot oppose him. The man in the scarlet knee bands is coming.”
– Tortoises? Knee bands?
– You see, the tortoise is considered a magical animal. It means you’re going to be so successful that not even magic can stop you.

In season 3, episode 6, The Tragedy at Marsdon Manor, at the beginning, the character who is the main victim in the episode talks about the words of his doctor that told him not to go outside and sleep a lot, which he considers appropriate rather for a tortoise.

Yes, I know what Dr. Bernard said – stay inside, get plenty of sleep. Well, that may be good advice for a tortoise, Susan.

In the first episode of season six, titled Hercule Poirot’s Christmas, a sea turtle shell can be seen among the various decorations in the house where most of the action takes place. It appears in the background in three different scenes.
