Mr McNeil was a non-canonical character who was created for the film adaptation of The Million Dollar Bond Robbery in Series 3 of ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot. Mr McNeil was in charge of security at the London and Scottish Bank. He did not welcome the bank engaging Poirot to escort the bonds to New York. He considered it an interference in his affairs. Nonetheless, McNeil did his duties conscientiously enough, go as far as having Mr Vavasour his superior handed over to Scotland Yard and locked up when he could not find his copy of the key to the strong box holding the bonds. His later fate after the true culprits are reveal is unknown, but Mr Vavasour clearly has a bone to pick with him after he is released.

McNeil was played in the film by Paul Young. This character does not occur in the original story.
