Editorial Reviews

Cross over the shadowy doorstep and into the sinister world of crime writing s Grand Dame Agatha Christie in this unprecedented 17-disc collection of classic mysteries. Lock the door, sit down, and have a cup of tea as two of Christie s most popular mystery-solvers Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot get to the bottom of 21 spine-tingling murder cases.

Tony © Award-nominee David Suchet stars as the beloved Belgian sleuth, Hercule Poirot, braving some of Christie s most notable and unpredictable plot twists in some of her most memorable tales. Lavish settings, a shining supporting cast, and rich period details bring 12 Poirot classics to life. He is joined by Miss Jane Marple, a consummate lady and an unflappable crime-stopper with intuition sharper than her knitting needles. Portrayed by Christie s personal choice for the role, veteran stage actress Joan Hickson, Miss Marple artfully unravels 9 unthinkable crimes with skill and a touch of class.

A&E Home Entertainment presents 21 classic Christie capers together in THE AGATHA CHRISTIE ANTHOLOGY featuring 35 hours of suspense, misdirection, and the cleverest sleuth solutions imaginable

I received it three days earlier than Amazon estimated. Since the titles are not advertised in the item description, I was so hoping that Miss Marple's "Nemesis" would be included -- and it is! Haven't played any of them yet, and there are more Poirot than Marple, but I know I am going to be quite pleased. It's going to be a delightful Thanksgiving weekend!

For those interested, these are the titles included in the set:

Poirot: The Murder of Roger Ackroyd; Lord Edgware Dies; Murder in Mesopotamia; Evil Under the Sun; Death on the Nile; Sad Cypress; The Hollow; Five Little Pigs; The Mystery of the Blue Train; Taken at the Flood; After the Funeral; Cards on the Table.

Miss Marple: A Caribbean Mystery; The Mirror Crack'd From Side to Side; Sleeping Murder; 4:50 from Paddington; The Moving Finger; At Bertram's Hotel; Murder at the Vicarage; Nemesis; They Do It with Mirrors.

Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Set Is Complete -- For A&E January 23, 2010
Format:DVD
Just to clear up a point that concerned other reviewers (and possibly other owners or potential buyers):

Only nine of the twelve Miss Marple stories starring Joan Hickson are included because video rights to the other three are controlled by (and DVDs have been released by) another company. The same is true for the early (one-hour) Poirot stories and the most recent movies; this product contains the 12 films that A&E has the video rights to.

Someday all the rights may belong to a single company, in which case we may finally see a "complete" Hickson Marple or a "complete" Suchet Poirot, but not before then.

3.0 out of 5 stars Miss Marple movies list September 26, 2012
Format:DVD
I do not own this collection; I am posting this to help out another person. The movies in this are the same as in the Marple: The Classic Mysteries Collection (Caribbean Mystery / 4:50 from Paddington / Moving Finger / Nemesis / At Bertram's Hotel / Murder at Vicarage / Sleeping Murder / They Do It with Mirrors / Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side) ~ Joan Hickson
I won't be buying it as I already own the Marple collection :-(

5.0 out of 5 stars A reissued copy of good stuff September 6, 2009
Format:DVD
A&E Video pitches this as "2 sensational sleuths, 1 extraordinary writer". If you paraphrase the words, you have the description given to Horatio Hornblower in the making of special shown with the first (Midshipman) series. Which shows as they are aging, A&E's vocabulary is slowly degrading. As to the DVDs in this set, this is nothing more than a reissued megaset of the 12 feature length Poirots shown by A&E in the early 2000s and 9 of the 12 Classic Miss Marples (with Joan Hickson) during the 1980s on PBS and later rerun on A&E. Both series originating on British TV of course. As they are not complete, you will still need the following to complete your collections: The Warner Home Video 3 pack of Miss Marple, the 2 Acorn Media Classic Collections or their newly released counterparts in colored boxes with 3 or 4 discs which includes a new set which has 2 of 4 newly made Poirots in 2008 (the other 2 are not out in America as yet but they are in England if you have a multi region player). Suffice it to say, nothing new here for those who bought any of the older copies. But if you haven't then get the best deal (which this mega set might be for a start) you can but remember this mega set is incomplete.

I love Agatha Christie and I love these adaptations of some of her stories.
Both actors are just the perfect fit for the according roles.
It is great to have a collection of them now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Mystery Theater December 13, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been watching Miss Marple and Poirot for many years over and over and never get tired of them. The settings and the acting are terrific and no one gets Poirot better than David Suchet. He is the ultimate Poirot and a delight to watch.

We love Poirot & Marple and it's a great collection, but if you already own some of their mysteries, this set might not include many new ones for you.
Poirot: Murder of Roger Ackroyd, Lord Edgeware Dies, Murder in Mesopotamia, Evil under the Sun, Death on Nile, Sad Cypress, The Hollow, 5 Little Pigs, Mystery of Blue Train; Taken at the Flood; After the Funeral, Cards on the Table.
Marple: Caribbean Mystery; Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side; Sleeping Murder; 4:50 from Paddington; Moving Finger; At Bertram's Hotel; Murder at Vicarage; Nemesis; They do it with Mirrors.

but if you don't have these, this set is great!
