Archie Havering was a non-canonical character who was created for the film adaptation of The Mystery of Hunter's Lodge in Series 3 of ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot. He was the nephew of Harrington Pace, and worked as a school teacher in Ashby Pickard, where Hunter's Lodge was located.

Archie had his grievance against Harrington Pace which made him a suspect when his uncle was shot. As Archie told Hastings, he considered Harrington Pace "beneath contempt". Pace had made his wealth by cheating his partner and then profiteering during the war. He treated his relatives like servants, making Stoddard, his half brother, a gamekeeper and himself his estate manager.

Archie Havering is played by Shaughan Seymour. This character does not occur in the original story.
