As seen on PBS’s Masterpiece Mystery!
David Suchet returns as Agatha Christie’s peerless Poirot in these eight mysteries from the hit series. The genteel Belgian detective calls upon his famous little grey cells to crack cases that no one else could, aided by cohorts Captain Hastings (Hugh Fraser, Sharpe), Chief Inspector Japp (Philip Jackson, Little Voice), and Miss Lemon (Pauline Moran). The elegant world of 1930s Europe sparkles anew in these remastered adaptations, with guest stars including Anna Chancellor (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Hermione Norris (MI-5, Cold Feet), and Jeremy Northam (Emma, The Tudors).

Top Customer Reviews
Odd that some are yet trying to sell (one reviewer promote) the older set, not remastered, for more $, up to $1000. New Series 5 is a value to new buyers or those who want the crisper image, Blu-ray level target. My vote's with newer, better, & America (even though it is Brit TV).
SUBTITLE option available for all episodes. Aired first in 1993. 407 min. and now in the original UK order. Guest stars aplenty, as normal.
-_-_-The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb
Dr. Ames is Rolf Saxon (Saving Pvt Ryan). We've all heard of the Egyptian Pharaoh tomb curses. True? Ghastly-ghostly deaths. Poirot will reveal, and give you Egypt scenery as a plus.
Nazis, rubber, and miniatures all combine for a murder to solve. Auctions have losers, & but one winner.
A 2nd chance. Poirot failed to solve a crime, can he do it the second time around? A London reenactment of an Argentine dinner of death. Suicide or murder? Hubby (David Troughton) wants to know.
-_-_-The Case of the Missing Will
1926. Poirot has more than a crime to solve, he being the dead man's confident in estate planning changes. But someone beats the odds & will change. Who?Read more ›
These had been previously released in various Poirot Collections using the old 1993 film to video transfers in standard definition. Now ITV has gone back to the original camera films to do new Hi-Definition transfers, making the series look fresh and new.
The eight great one hour episodes here are:
34 5-01 17/January/93 "THE ADVENTURES OF THE EGYPTIAN TOMB"
35 5-02 24/January/93 "THE UNDERDOG"
36 5-03 31/January/93 "THE YELLOW IRIS"
37 5-04 07/February/93 "THE CASE OF THE MISSING WILL"
38 5-05 14/February/93 "THE ADVENTURES OF THE ITALIAN NOBLEMAN"
39 5-06 21/February/93 "THE CHOCOLATE BOX"
40 5-07 28/February/93 "DEAD MAN'S MIRROR
41 5-08 07/March/93 "JEWEL ROBBERY AT THE GRAND METROPOLITAN"
While these may have been filmed in 16mm, going back to the original camera 16mm film elements to create this transfer will always look better than a 1993 standard definition transfer of a 16mm copy made from a 16mm dubbing negative.
The next series, #6, would be the last season to be produced by LWT (London Weekend Television) when Granada Television did a hostile take-over of the company.
Those series #6 movies appeared in the DVD Poirot Movie Collection #2.
Series 7, 8, 9, & 10 were produced by itv and A&E-TV. They were produced in widescreen but A&E cropped them. Now Acorn offers them in widescreen.
Series #11 & 12 were previously released on DVD movie sets 4, 5,& 6. Look for the new series 13 in 2014.
