Editorial Reviews

As seen on PBS’s Masterpiece Mystery!

Agatha Christie’s renowned Belgian detective solves the most challenging cases of the Art Deco era in these delightful adaptations starring David Suchet as “a near-perfect Poirot” (USA Today). These four feature-length mysteries boast all-star casts including Jessica Chastain, Hugh Bonneville, Barbara Hershey, Toby Jones, Eileen Atkins, David Morrissey, Martin Shaw, Timothy West, and Zoë Wanamaker.

THE MYSTERIES
(original U.K. broadcast order)
Three Act Tragedy—After guests at successive dinner parties mysteriously drop dead, Poirot teams up with an old friend to find the killer.
Hallowe’en Party—Crime novelist Ariadne Oliver calls Poirot to investigate the macabre murder of a young girl at a children’s costume party.
Murder on the Orient Express—Poirot searches for a killer among the travelers aboard a snowbound train.
The Clocks—Poirot journeys to Dover to solve a case involving an unidentified corpse and four timepieces all stopped at the same time.

Of all of the Poirot re-releases, this is the least important. It is merely a re-issue of the previous Blu-ray releases of "The Poirot Movie Collection set 6" along with "Murder on the Orient Express".
Since all of these had already been released in HD on Blu-ray there is NO upgrade here. This replacement set is only to keep the series uniform. You have NO reason to replace your old set!

The previous Blu-ray releases included in this new set:

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS (also available on The Poirot Movie Collection volume 5) Agatha Christie's Poirot: Murder on the Orient Express [Blu-ray]
DAVID SUCHET ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS - documentary of David riding the real train (also available on The Poirot Movie Collection volume 5.)
POIROT MOVIE COLLECTION volume 6 Agatha Christie's Poirot: The Movie Collection - Set 6 [Blu-ray]
1) THE THREE ACT TRAGEDY
2) THE CLOCKS
3) HALLOWE'EN PARTY

The next "Must Get" Poirot set will be the final "Series 13" which will include the final episodes produced in 2013. Agatha Christie's Poirot, Series 13 [Blu-ray]

5 stars for Poirot, always a pleasure. One thing to watch for: these movie-length episodes were released as recently as 2010 and 2011 as Poirot's Movie Collections 5 and 6.
There is no improvement on the already-sharp remastering, only a change in the packaging. I can't imagine why anyone who has been buying Poirot series all along would buy this set, unless one wants all the numbers on the shelf lined up in order...like Poirot would!

I've been following this series for a while now and was looking forward to the release of the next set. This box set includes four exciting mysteries with Poirot leading the investigations as only he can, but with lots of fabulous guest stars sprinkled in along the way.

Three Act Tragedy - A parson dies suddenly at a party along the coast. At first it appears natural but when a similar death occurs at another party, the hostess becomes a top suspect. The drama comes in when Poirot rein-acts the death on stage.

Hallo'ween Party - A young girl is murdered at a costume party and a crime novelist calls in Poirot to collaborate. It turns out the girl had been a possible witness to another murder and the pair set out to find a killer in the quaint little town.

Murder of the Orient Express - A train gets stuck in a snowstorm and when a murder takes place, only Poirot came find the killer aboard a train filled with rich foreigners and royalty.

The Clocks - Poirot heads to Dover to help with a naval investigation. An unidentified body and clocks stopped at the same odd time lead to a slew of suspects. As more murders take place, including the death of a German spy, Poirot must determine who the real villain is.

I really enjoyed Series 12 of Poirot. It's packed with lots of mystery, intrigue, and humor. Poirot remains an engaging character with a lot of personality (and a really cool mustache). In this series, the story of the renown Poirot is told in a way that Agatha Christie would be proud off.

David Suchet's Poirot on TV films are adaptations of Agatha Christie's novels--but so well done, both books and TV shows/DVDs have proved modern classics in their own right. I avoid comparison of novel to screen. No need, both excellent.
The star casts and guest stars are too numerous to mention. One can't fault acting a ha'penny.
This set is the end of a re-issue series placing stories in original UK TV-airing order.
BUT . . .
It has been announced that the FINAL series 13 is new episodes, finally all Christie's Poirot stories adapted, and Suchet playing Poirot in all 70, a 25 year single-character career. He's unsurpassed.

SDH SUBTITLES FOR ALL 4 adapted feature length stories:
Three Act Tragedy
A lovely Cornwall coastal location for a Poirot murder case(s). A parson (Nigel Pegram) one of many at a dinner party drops dead of apparent natural cause. A 2nd Yorkshire party-same guest list-has a 2nd death, the host Tallie (Art Malik-`Upstairs Downstairs'). Hercule helps Sir Charles (Martin Shaw-`George Gently') investigate. Egg (Kimberly Nixon-`Cranford') helps too, or is she suspect? Poirot reenacts the complex and connected deaths under stage lights.
Other stars: Jane Asher (`Wish Me Luck' `Alfie'), Kate Ashfield (`Silent Witness'), Tony Maudsley (`Doc Martin' `Foyle's War'), Anna Carteret (`Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont'), plus.

Hallowe'en Party
A crime author friend (Zoe Wanamaker) asks Poirot to investigate the drowning of a child, participant at a Halloween party. She previously claimed to have witnessed a murder. All party guests & their lives are investigated to find this killer as well as the perpetrator of 4 more deaths. Beautiful fall scenes with spooky dark spots too.

Mr. Suchet's twenty-five year run as Poirot has been an embodiment that has enthralled and enchanted the fans of this series with a never ending eye to detail. We have seen Poirot (and Suchet) age gracefully into the character as Christie intended. These stories are bringing us closer to the final curtain which is coming in Series 13 (when oh when???). British viewers have already been privileged to see the final case and witness the end of Poirot as Christie commanded and we Yanks are anxiously awaiting those final five episodes with baited breath. In the meanwhile we can seek solace in this set which contains The Three Act Tragedy, The Clocks, The Hallowe'en Party and the much heralded and hotly debated Murder On The Orient Express (including the fascinating documentary with David Suchet taking us on a marvelous journey both enjoying and looking at the famous Orient Express itself).

Long term fans know that as Poirot grew on Christie she allowed him to become much more dark and brooding in the final books and yet retain his peccadilloes right up to the end. True fans know this and applaud these last productions for keeping the atmosphere of the books intact (the great debate about Murder On The Orient Express aside).

I would unwaveringly recommend the entire series to any newbies or fans who wish to witness one of the great theatrical accomplishments of this or any other century...for David Suchet is indeed one of the greats and his 25 year characterization will be hard put to top for a long long time to come. The productions are superb in cast, set design, and location shooting that evokes the time Poirot plied his trade flawlessly. It is just a magnificent series all around.
