I recently saw for the second time an episode of Agatha Christie's Poirot called 'the Disappearance of Mr Davensheim'. David Souchet performs little magic tricks here and there (eg torn and restored newspaper); and I was wondering which magicians may have coached him, etc. OR if Souchet is a dabbler himself!

Thanx for following up. It appears Patrick Page, rest his soul, did a good job of teaching misdirection as well as the mechanics of the tricks. Lynn

The stage magician at the start of the clip is Patrick Page. Patrick said David Suchet was a quick learner. Smile
(and a fine actor)
