An expert in his field and given the co-incidental timing of his promotion to David Suchet’s last outing as Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot; Dixon draws comparison between fiction and real life.

Sheffield, South Yorkshire ‘The Telegraph - Poirot’s Last Case’ by James Walton 13/11/2013. – “We’ve all seen classic films about private detectives, like Chinatown and Vertigo, but now more and more people are starting to encounter private detectives in real life.” Dixon noted.

The fact is private detectives are an important resource for people who are trying to track down long lost relatives, catch cheating spouses and gather evidence for court cases. However real life private investigators are a little different from their shadowy counterparts in movies or on TV. “

They Don’t Have Any Special Powers. Private detectives in TV shows often seem to have the same type of power as the police. They might even appear to be more powerful, with access to clandestine government records and other nefarious secrets. In reality private detectives don’t have any more power than the average citizen, and they certainly won’t break laws in the course of their investigations. Most private detectives including Private Detective Sheffield (http://www.privatedetective-sheffield.com) are actually law-abiding citizens, as even minor legal problems could impede their ability to do their job. Their powers come from a keen sense of observation and an ability to analyze complex information to draw conclusions and gather evidence.

The Work Is Often Boring. Films and television shows have to paint an exciting picture of situations. No one wants to watch someone do a boring job. But most of the time a private detective’s job is boring. They might have to wait outside a house in their car for twelve hours on a stake out, or spend two or three days painstakingly going through public records. There are no car chases or shoot outs and even the most exciting parts of the job are quite tame compared to the movies.

They Don’t Carry A Gun. When you think of a private detective, you probably think of a man who carries a gun: perhaps a classic six shooter or another type of pistol. In the UK, no one is allowed to carry a gun other than a specially trained police officer in certain situations. That certainly isn’t a law they are prepared to flout. In the US, some private detectives will have a license to carry a concealed weapon, but the vast majority of them will go the entire length of their careers without having to discharge it.

They Rarely Investigate Serious Crimes. The plot of many movies and TV shows, Like Poirot, revolve around someone asking a private detective to investigate a crime the police have failed to solve, usually something very serious like a murder. In reality, this almost never happens. Criminal investigations are usually best left to the police. Private detectives are more likely to gather evidence for civil cases, or personal issues such as missing people.

They Don’t Look Like The P.I.s in the Movies. Being a good private detective means blending into the background. That means dressing like everyone else, unlike Hercule Poirot who is a flamboyant dresser and easily spotted. They certainly won’t skulk around in a trench coat and fedora. Most of the time they’ll be dressed in casual clothing. One thing that might also surprise you is the number of female P.I.s. While men have traditionally dominated private investigations, some of the best P.I.s working today is female.
