The Affair of the Pink Pearl -- In a second romantic mystery set during the Roaring Twenties, Tommy and Tuppence start up their own detective agency and take on their first professional case: the theft of a valuable gem.
The Body in the Library -- Miss Marple (Geraldine McEwan, The Magdalene Sisters) investigates the death of a glamorous young woman whose body turns up in the unlikeliest place.
The Mysterious Affair at Styles -- Hercule Poirot (David Suchet) comes to the aid of an old friend, a recovering war veteran who encounters an apparent murder at the remote English estate of Styles St. Mary.
The Pale Horse -- In swinging 60s England, sculptor Mark Easterbrook (Colin Buchanan, Dalziel and Pascoe) tries to clear himself of a murder that he didnt commit.
