5.0 out of 5 stars 16 hours of what some consider THE BEST November 28, 2012
Rereleased from the past in a new combined set. It's great for those mystery/crime viewers who can't afford all of the Poirot and/or Marple series. There are so many, and now fans have voted these selections to be the BEST. Well they are all good, but having watched about all there is of Agatha Christie that has been dramatized for TV, these are good. A fine choice for the beginning follower of Agatha and the film adaptations.

SUBTITLES for 16 hours
Poirot Favorites
Poirot is a Belgian detective, good at what he does, just ask him, and he's funny too.
Art Deco is the 1920-30s period and the show uses that. Six episodes first as Masterpiece Mystery, then DVD. David Suchet is Poirot, Hugh Fraser plays Hastings, Philip Jackson as the Yard's CI Japp, and Pauline Moran is secretary Lemon. Mega and many guest stars.

Murder on the Orient Express ; comes previously from Series 12. My favorite.
Hercule Poirot's Christmas -Prev Series 6
The Mysterious Affair at Styles -Prev Series 3
The ABC Murders -Prev Series 4
The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb -Prev Series 5
Four and Twenty Blackbirds -Prev Series 1

Marple Favorites
Miss Marple (Geraldine McEwan and Julia McKenzie) is an aging sleuth with a quick mind that eventually gets the bad guys. She's always a step ahead of the coppers. These also originated on Masterpiece Mystery. Like Poirot episodes, you'll get to see many major British guest stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Two Worlds February 4, 2013
I have always been a fan of Agatha Christie. I have read many of her books, even though they would probably be considered "before my time". Most of the copies I have are yellowed with age, but a good story is timeless and Agatha Christie is a writer for all generations. But one thing I didn't know until recently is that Acorn has taken some of her characters and made them into their own television series. Only the British could find a way to take a classic mystery novel and turn it into an equally entertaining series. And that is exactly what they've done with the Agatha Christie's Poirot and Marple. This DVD set brings you the best of both worlds with the top picks from both series. Its a great way to get familiar or to just enjoy the shows that are already your favorites.
