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

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.
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.
I won't be buying it as I already own the Marple collection :-(
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!
Both actors are just the perfect fit for the according roles.
It is great to have a collection of them now.
