Now remastered & in original U.K. broadcast order

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).

Format: DVD
REMASTERED set 5 is 8 Poirots. Belgian with `little gray cell' out-sleuths `The Yard.' David Suchet made Poirot famous. Philip Jackson plays Chief Inspector Japp in last 5 episodes. Hastings (Hugh Fraser) Poirot's right-hand is available for all but one episode. Miss Lemon (Pauline Moran) in 6 episodes. Agatha Christie stories always fantastic, but Suchet makes the film adaptations soar to new heights. Humor, scenic bliss, and costume lust rival the script writing. Poirot stories began a 1920s era. Trivially noteworthy, the fictional character was granted a 1975 NYTimes front page obit.

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.
-_-_-The Underdog
Nazis, rubber, and miniatures all combine for a murder to solve. Auctions have losers, & but one winner.
-_-_-Yellow Iris
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?

Series 5 returns to the one-hour format basing the stories on the Poirot Short Stories.

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.

If you haven't seen this series on blu ray, then you haven't seen the series. These transfers are first rate and put any previous dvd and/or video release to shame.

Season 5 is one of the best with "The Dead Man's Mirror" and "The Case of the Missing Will" taking top honors. David Suchet's portrayal brings to life Agatha Christie's Belgian detective; unlike any actor before him. He is to Poirot, what Jeremy Brett was to Sherlock Holmes. These Eight include some of the best episodes; you have Hastings, Inspector Japp and Miss Lemon all in fine form. I would recommend this season to anyone needing a bit intellectual entertainment.

David Suchet is a perfect Poirot. I grew up reading and loving Agatha Christie. This show brings so much dimension to the Agatha Christie characters. Makes me want to go back and read the books again too! The nuances of the Poirot character (and the others) and the wonderful cinematography of the show make it so compelling to watch. I have gone through all the seasons and wish there were more!

I have always enjoyed Agatha Christie's Mysteries. Hercule Poirot happens to be one of my all-time favorite. I am a big fan of British Cinema, I have always been thanks to my mother's superb taste in quality television. I share my purchase with both my mother and sister. We've enjoyed them all. Thank you for providing such a wide-selection. Happy in California, USA!

This is a highly acclaimed series - and for good reason. The acting is top-notch, the plots are interesting, and the production, camera shots and settings are unique and very well done. Definitely worth checking out.

I love this series! I've watched every episode twice and am on my third viewing. There simply isn't anything to compare. I've watched Poirot acted by different actors for a few of the episodes. They are alright but nothing to get excited about. David Suchet plays the part of Hercule with impeccable taste and accuracy. He captures the character with every gesture. It is a real pleasure to watch the master at his craft.
