Mr Newsome is a non-canonical character who was created for the film adaptation of The Cornish Mystery in Series 2 of ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot. Mr Newsome was the assistant of Jacob Radnor in his tailor and outfitter shop. The credits list this character as "shop assistant" but Radnor addresses him as "Mr Newsome" in the episode dialogue.

Mr Newsome was played in the film by Richard Braine. This character does not occur in the original story.
