Editorial Reviews

Now remastered & in original U.K. broadcast order.

As seen on PBS’s Masterpiece Mystery!

Agatha Christie’s marvelously mustachioed Belgian detective returns in the second series of the hit PBS mystery. Played to perfection by David Suchet, Hercule Poirot uses his formidable "little grey cells" to outwit criminals and fellow sleuths alike. These remastered adaptations bring the splendor of Art Deco-era Europe to brilliant life. Also starring Hugh Fraser (Sharpe) as the genial Captain Hastings, Philip Jackson (Robin of Sherwood) as Chief Inspector Japp, and Pauline Moran as Miss Lemon.

5.0 out of 5 stars More of the classic 50 minute short stories! November 20, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
With the great success of series 1, LWT (London Weekend Television) quickly continued with an equally successful series 2.
This time, along with Agatha Christie's Poirot short stories, one Agatha Christie Poirot novel story was included, creating a double length episode. This longer story allowed for a more intriguing mystery.
The rest of the season was filled out with Poirot short stories, but the 'pilot' of the longer double episode showed that LWT was capable of producing the Poirot Novels for television.
Series 3 would dramatize another novel, and series 4 would would feature 4 novels and no short stories.

ITV, the current owners of the LWT programs, went back to the original film elements and remastered them in HD. Yes, there are subtitles.

Agatha Christie's Poirot series 2 (50 minutes unless noted)
11 2-01 07/Jan/90 Peril at End House (2-hour episode)
12 2-02 14/Jan/90 The Veiled Lady
13 2-03 21/Jan/90 The Lost Mine
14 2-04 28/Jan/90 The Cornish Mystery
15 2-05 04/Feb/90 The Disappearance of Mr. Davenheim
16 2-06 11/Feb/90 Double Sin
17 2-07 18/Feb/90 The Adventure of the Cheap Flat
18 2-08 25/Feb/90 The Kidnapped Prime Minister
19 2-09 04/Mar/90 The Adventure of the Western Star

While 16mm will never look as sharp as 35mm, if you directly transfer the original 16mm camera film elements they will always look better & sharper than the older DVDs mastered from 16mm film copies made form 16mm negatives. The camera originals are sharper than the copies.

5.0 out of 5 stars review of series 2 of Poirot mysteries March 5, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
David Suchet is priceless in his role of Poirot. We enjoyed every story in the Series 2 collection. We started watching these mysteries on PBS and had to have our own to view and review every story. We enjoy the roles of Capt. Hastings and Miss Lemon. We miss them in the Poirot movies. Long live Agatha Christie's Poirot. We recommend these DVDs for any mystery fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality Video March 11, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The Blue-ray versions of the Poirot 1-hr. episodes are markedly better than the DVD version in resolution and color, whether watched on a flat screen TV or via a projector. I'm glad I found the Blue-ray versions halfway through building my Poirot Series library.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Do you not find it intriguing, Hastings...?" March 8, 2012
Format:DVD
The second series of Agatha Christie's "Poirot" adapts one novel and eight short stories into ten fifty-minute episodes (the novel being split into two parts) and stars David Suchet in what is considered by many to be the definitive performance of Christie's famous Belgian detective. Working as a private investigator who is often called in by Scotland Yard to help with some of their more baffling cases, Poirot enjoys a modest lifestyle amidst the Art Deco styling of 1930s England, which the show goes to great pains to reproduce.

Working alongside Suchet is Hugh Fraser as his Watsonian sick-kick Captain Hastings, Philip Jackson as the by-the-books Chief Inspector Japp, and Pauline Moran as Poirot's immensely efficient secretary Miss Lemon.

As a long running series that began in 1989 and only recently finished filming the final adaptations of Christie's books in 2012, the release of the older episodes on DVD is a treat for long-time fans of the show. With writers such as Clive Exton, Anthony Horowitz (best known for the Alex Rider series) and David Renwick (creator of Jonathan Creek) penning some of the screenplays, it comes as no surprise that the show has won plenty of awards, including BAFTAs in its time. Although the pacing can be a little slow by today's standards, the earliest episodes of "Poirot" still stand as the benchmark not only for faithful Christie adaptations, but mystery shows in general.

"Peril at End House" is the highlight of this box-set, with higher production values and a more sophisticated story than the rest of the episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars David Suchet is Poirot August 30, 2013
By lolli
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I particularly like these early episodes. They are shorter and just seem to be the perfect watch time. Also, you just seem to get a lot for your money in these nine great episodes. For new Poirot fans, I would strongly suggest that this is where you start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Poirot August 28, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I never thought I'd be one to watch and rewatch movies but I don't seem to get tired of Poirot. And I love the detail in the furniture, clothes and accessories in his movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! August 11, 2012
Format:DVD
One of my #1 complaints about the Acorn DVDs was they did not have closed captioning which made it all but impossible for my nearly deaf wife to hear and enjoy Poirot, which we love. Acorn must have heard my and others' complaints because these new series now have closed captioning. The shows are top notch. Absolutely no complaints about this series of DVDs.
