Nelly Morgan was a non-canonical character who was created for the film adaptation of Problem at Sea in Season 1 of ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot. She and Emily Morgan were the aunts Ismene and passengers on board the cruise ship.

Nelly Morgon was played by Dorothea Phillips. There is no such character in the original story. She and Emily Morgan were probably added as guardians for Ismene and also to showcase the disagreeable and unpleasant nature of Mrs Adeline Clapperton. Mrs Clapperton was highly critical of the Nelly's singing during the after dinner entertainment programme arranged by Hastings. "It's her family I feel sorry for," Mrs Clapperton had said.
