Jack Stoddard 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 gamekeeper at Hunter's Lodge, which in the adaptation was located at Ashby Pickard. Stoddard was the half-brother of the wealthy Harrington Pace but Pace did not acknowledge this. Pace treated Stoddard badly, considering him a mere servant and refusing to lend him the relatvively small sum of £300 so that he could buy his house and get married to the maid Joan. This grievance made Stoddard a possible suspect when Harrington Pace was murdered.

Jack Stoddard is played by Roy Boyd. This character does not occur in the original story.
