PBS’s Mystery! and A&E

David Suchet plays the dapper Belgian sleuth to perfection in these nine mysteries, originally produced for British television and based on the stories of Dame Agatha Christie. Capturing the joie de vivre and art deco elegance of 1930s Europe, the series also stars Hugh Fraser as Poirot’s affable assistant Captain Hastings, Philip Jackson as Chief Inspector Japp, and Pauline Moran as Miss Lemon.

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.

My wife is an Agatha Christie freak. She has read every book and watches every Hercule Poroit/Miss Marple mystery. This was great for a cold winter's night of who dun it.

David Suchret IS Hercule Poirot! He is the Agatha Christie character the way she wrote him to be.

The DVDs are clear and on a good machine, they appear near-high definition. Photogtaphy is superb!

I own all but 2 of the Poirot series with David Suchet as Poirot. I will eventually purchase the whole series, and will be sad when I have come to the end. David Suchet has portrayed Poirot excellently.I do not compare the movies to the Agatha Christies books. I have not read the books but will someday. I enjoy setting down at days end, plugging in a DVD of Poroit and engulfing myself in a life style of England and the world of years ago. It is hours of entertainment that I can watch over and over.
Thank you

Any Agatha Christie fan will be wowed with set4 The Classic Collection. David Suchet is at his best! This set includes 2 holiday locales for Poirot, Greece and at Sea. Also, as always, you can look forward to seeing Hastings, Japp, and Miss Lemon as this set includes them.

The wonderful thing about the Classic Collection is that there are nine, approx. 40-minute long mysteries. BBC does an excellent job on period costumes and art deco settings.

If you like Poirot, played by David Suchet, you won't be disappointed.

(Also, Amazon did a very good job in shipping.)

Me and my family are Poirotaholics. We love watching Poirot, Miss Lemon, Captain Hasting. Inspector Japp.
Every show as been on our seats, mind boggling sometimes, emotional, gripping. Poirot is neat, intelligent, verse, amazing, at times. Use to watch alot on A&E and when it started on Mystery and Masterpiece Theatre with Alastair Cooke. It great to watch over and over again. This set is my daughter she loves it.

Mr. Poirot , David Suchet, is the perfect Mr. Poirot. A perfectionist in life and in his investigations, makes the episodes all the more enjoyable. His assistant, Captain Hastings, and Ms. Lemon, add to the drama, sometimes humorous situations, and overall pleasure of watching these adaptations of Agatha Christie's novels. I don't think she would be disappointed.

I love Poirot. I can go into another world and step into the movie. I won't answer the phone when I watch David Suchet. This is the time I set aside for myself. To get those little grey cells working. I love it!!!
