... and get everyone like it that you can (all of three sets only). If you are the lover of David Suchet's Poirot, as I am, this dvd collection is the one to start off with - accept no others.

An annoying habit of the market is to put out a "dvd collection" that is a few paltry episodes or bits of a series. Later ... WHAM!! ... the whole series or a newly configured set comes out, and you're angrier than a monkey with its tail burned off.

This dvd set is not like that. It is packed with episodes, among them the elusive "Chocolate Box", one of my most favorite Poirot adventures of all. Sadly, at present only two other of these boxed sets are available:

"Agatha Christie's Poirot: The Classic Collection" - Set 1, Set 2, Set 3 and alas, no more - plus, each set is sold separately. Try not to go out on a limb with other collections unless you know them well, or unless the collection contains a film you particularly love, as this set contains one I particularly love.

These sets are not the only collections that have the original hour-long A&E Channel Poirot series, and there are other sets containing the two-hour specials. Not to mention the collection of the newer films from circa 1999 to 2010 (I have yet to see DEATH ON THE NILE which was promised back in 2010, but has never been shown on TV; I have enjoyed EVIL UNDER THE SUN which was as dark as can be, vid. my review).

So be very careful choosing sets - though this particular set is in a silver box, one clue to help you besides using the full, correct titles of these sets is that they come in metallic, brightly-hued boxes. Set 1 is copper/dark orange, Set 2 is gold/yellow and Set 3 is, as you see, silver/grey. (If they ever do a Set 4 my guess is the box will be platinum/white.

David Suchet never disappoints, and Hugh Frasier and Philip Jackson are excellent as Hastings and Inspector Japp, respectively. The episodes are about an hour long and are adapted from Agatha Christie's short stories, I assume. They are great! Anyone enjoying British period mysteries will be happy with this set of Hercule Poirot stories.

Poirot fans, who wish to have a complete collection, will find navigating through all the sets offered somewhat of a maze, specifically due to the lack of episode/movie titles, on the box front or in the seller's description. Some diligent viewers have been kind enough to provide titles, in their reviews. However, I found it particularly difficult, when shopping, to figure out the contents of The Classic Collection Set 3, which is in a silver box.
Here are the titles:
1. The Adventure of The Egyptian Tomb
2. The Underdog
3. Yellow Iris
4. The Case of The Missing Will
5. The Adventure of The Italian Nobleman
6. The Chocolate Box
7. Dead Man's Mirror
8. Jewel Robbery At The Grand Metropolitan
9. The Case Of The Clapham Cook
Purchasing The Classic Collection Set 1(orange box), Set 2(yellow box), Set 3(silver Box - this set), and Set 4(platinum/pale pink box), individually is the best bargain. The Classic Collection Sets 1, 2, 3, and 4, completely cover all of the Agatha Christie's Poirot: Collector Sets 1 through 12, a total of 36 episodes, which are the boxes with different colored bands, on the left side. Each of the Classic Collections has 9, of those Collector Set episodes.
For example, this Classic Collection 3, covers the Collector Sets 7, 8, and 9. Later The Classic Collection, Vol. 2 was produced, which covers nine movie length features, originally produced by Grenada Films and are different movies, from the 36 episodes, offered in the four Classic Collections. See the very professional review, on The Classic Collection, Vol.2, by Themis Athena. It is confusing, because the titles, of each collection, have only subtle differences.

Hi,
I have a question not a comment, one thing I hate is that I can not tell the titles of the films in the collection. I love Poirot, and have many of the volumes, I am just missing eight, I ordered some collection also, but I am so afraid of ordering movies that I already have. So if someone who already owns this collection count put the titles of the movies in the classic collection, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks

If you want this, and the other three Classic Collection sets, then you want: Agatha Christie's Poirot - The Classic Collection. These sets are the same as the Collector's sets Agatha Christie's Poirot: Collector's Set Volume 1 through Agatha Christie's Poirot: Collector's Set Volume 12. Don't be fooled into buying duplicate DVDs.

If a person likes high class and very well written mysteries, like Agatha Christie's books coming alive, then this is one series a person should invest in. David Suchet does a wonderful and sometimes very funny Poirot, who is always in control and consumate detective. The stories are intelligent, riveting, and interesting. I highly recommend anything Agatha Christie starring David Suchet.

I am also wondering the same thing. Have scoured the web, but have not seem any mention of it.
