Editorial Reviews

Original U.K. broadcast order

As seen on PBS’s Masterpiece Mystery!

Putting his brilliant intellect and fastidious nature to the test, Agatha Christie’s famous Belgian detective solves the most mystifying crimes of the Art Deco era in these dazzling adaptations. David Suchet gives the definitive performance of Poirot and leads star-studded casts including Tim Curry, Elizabeth McGovern, John Hannah, Harriet Walter, Siân Phillips, Peter Bowles, James Wilby, and Zoë Wanamaker in these four feature-length mysteries.

THE MYSTERIES
(original U.K. broadcast order)
Mrs. McGinty’s Dead—With the help of mystery novelist Ariadne Oliver, Poirot tries to save a potentially innocent man from execution.
Cat Among the Pigeons—A new student causes a stir at the Meadowbank School for Girls. When the bodies start turning up, Poirot is on hand.
Third Girl—Collaborating again with Ariadne Oliver, Poirot helps a young heiress who thinks she may have committed murder.
Appointment with Death—The reviled wife of an archaeologist is killed at a dig in the Syrian Desert, leaving no shortage of suspects.

This is a supposed HD re-issue of Poirot Movie Collections 4 & 5 (minus Murder On The Orient Express which has already been issued on Blu-ray).
Unlike Poirot Series 1 through 10 (which were produced on film), Series 11 was produced on PAL (Phase Alternate Line) Standard Definition Video with a resolution of 576i. So that means this HD re-issue must be an up-conversion and not a new transfer of original film elements.

There is little, if any, improvement over the previous DVD releases. The absolute ONLY improvement I can see is better color balance for the blacks. Some shadows appear dark blue on the previous DVD, here they are black. The rest of the colors appear the same, NO improvement. The Blu-ray is surprisingly SOFT in focus, identical to the previous DVD.
Think twice before re-buying these mysteries. If you have not bought them yet, then price wise this is the version you should buy. However, Acorn has not yet announced any re-issue of the old set 4 DVD's bonus documentary.

"Series 11" of Poirot is the only series produced in Standard Definition PAL Video. Series 1 through 10 were produced on super 16mm FILM and can be scanned to HD Video at a High Resolution. Series 12 & 13 were produced on High Definition Video.

The only other difference to note is that the old DVDs started with the PBS Masterpiece Mystery logo, this re-release starts with an ITV Studios logo.

Blu-ray fans will be disappointed at the DVD quality of the image. One wonders if the directors were intending the hazy effect, but all four mysteries look this way.

***** = for the mysteries themselves.
** = for this re-issue.

Poirot:On" the whole, you know, people tell you the truth. Because it is easier! Because it is less strain on the inventive faculties! You can tell one lie---or two lies---or three lies---or even four lies---BUT YOU CANNOT LIE ALL THE TIME. And so---the truth becomes plain."

And so it does herein with the two episodes featuring the mystery writer character Ariadne Oliver (Mrs McGinty's Dead and Third Girl) along with episodes Cat Among the Pigeons (a captivating tale of international intrigue at a girl's school) and Appointment with Death (which is more of a travelogue with a murder set in the Middle East than a mystery that is decipherable).

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware. February 16, 2014
Format:DVD
These are titles that I purchased in another Acorn collection quite recently. If you own any Poirot collections, check them first to prevent duplication. No one can make sense of this marketing strategy.
But for Poirot/Suchet, as always, 5 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish quality April 16, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
When I started to watch the first movie I soon got the impression that someone was making a bad joke. Never in a long time have I seen such utterly poor image quality. If this is HD my name is Santa Claus. Acorn Media should be ashamed to publish such trash. The movies are excellent, but suffer extensively from lower than low reproduction quality. I would stay clear of this product if I were you.

A wonderful selection of Poirot mini-movies. The quality of production on top of the great acting and writing, makes these a great buy.
