Editorial Reviews

3 classic mysteries from the hit PBS series, as seen on PBS’s Masterpiece Mystery.

David Suchet returns as the dapper Belgian detective in these three feature-length mysteries from the hit series. Aided by Captain Hastings (Hugh Fraser, Sharpe) and Chief Inspector Japp (Philip Jackson, Little Voice), Hercule Poirot tackles the trickiest of cases with savvy and finesse. These newly remastered episodes bring Agatha Christie’s 1930s Europe to vibrant life. Guest stars include Donald Sumpter (Game of Thrones) and Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who).

The Mysteries (original U.K. broadcast order):

"The ABC Murders"—Poirot investigates the baffling mystery of a murderer who announces his next victims through a series of chilling letters, each addressed to the detective himself.

"Death in the Clouds"—There’s murder in the skies as a ruthless blackmailer is killed on board a plane full of likely suspects. Unfortunately for the culprit, a certain Belgian detective is a fellow passenger.

"One, Two, Buckle My Shoe"—When a popular dentist is gunned down, a murderous chain of events ensues. A broken shoe buckle becomes the key to untangling a deadly web of deception.

Season 4 is one of the best from start to finish. David Suchet's portrayal brings to life Agatha Christie's Belgian detective; unlike any actor before him. He is to Poirot, what Jeremy Brett was to Sherlock Holmes. These are three of the longer; not to mention some of the best episodes; with "Death in the Clouds" and "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe" taking top honors. I highly recommend this season to anyone needing a bit intellectual entertainment, you won't be disappointed.

Remastered series 4 is 3 102 min. murders solved by Poirot, the masterful Belgian `little gray cell' man who forever out-sleuths Scotland Yard. Brilliant David Suchet is Poirot, enough said. Philip Jackson plays Chief Inspector Japp in all 3 episodes having a larger than previous role in 2 & 3 since Hastings (Hugh Fraser) Poirot's right-hand is available for only the first episode. Being all Agatha Christie stories makes it fantastic, but Suchet makes the film adaptations soar to new heights. Humor and some fantastic scenery and costuming appear in these. Poirot stories began in 1920 and the fictional character was granted a 1975 NYTimes front page obit.
SUBTITLES option available for all 3 episodes. Aired first in1992, set 4 of the re-released series now being offered in order of the original TV airings.
`The ABC Murders' 1936 (also book release year) Jim Hastings returns to help Poirot who's anxious for a crime to solve. A murderer taunts Poirot with letters announcing deaths and signing himself as ABC. Victims are not as random as they seem, quickly discovered, but alphabetical. Star Donald Sumpter plays Cust, a stocking salesman. Donald Fraser played by Nicholas Farrell (A Woman of Alexander Bonaparte Cust are standout.
`Death in the Clouds' Agatha's 1935 publication seems to be taking place in that year. Poirot flies from Paris to London when a murder occurs on the flight making even Poirot a suspect, plus all aboard. Madame Giselle (Eve Pearce- `Lyyton's Diary') dies and Japp wants Poirot's help even if he may have been the killer. Lady Horbury (Cathryn Harrison) is delightful in lavish period costumes. Stewardess Grey (Sarah Woodward) super as Poirot's helper and catch Jenny Downham playing daughter Anne. See Paris of old, and an early passenger plane interior.

Series 4 was the first full season to switch from Agatha Christie's Poirot Short Stories to her Poirot Novels (two had already been produced in 1990), thus creating feature length TV episodes.

These had been previously released in various "Poirot Movie Collections" using the old 1992 film to video transfers in standard definition. Now ITV, the owner of LWT programs, has gone back to the original camera films to do new Hi-Definition transfers, making the series look fresh and new.

The three great two hour episodes here are:

31 4-01 05/January/92 "THE A.B.C. MURDERS"
32 4-02 12/January/92 "DEATH IN THE CLOUDS"
33 4-03 19/January/92 "ONE, TWO, BUCKLE MYSHOE"

While these may have been filmed in 16mm, going back to0 the original camera 16mm film elements to create this transfer will always look better than a 1992 standard definition transfer of a 16mm copy made from a 16mm dubbing negative.

I just love these Poiror series! I often watch an episode just before bed or first thing in the morning. David Suchet is the perfect Poirot. My only problem with series 4 is that it only has 3 episodes on it where other Poirot series have 7 or more episodes on them.

I have loved the Poirot series since I was young. my Mom and I watched the PBS show as often
as it came on. We would try to figure it out before Poirot did, but he always won.
The gentle, polite manner and the smart calm way he uses the information to come to the answer
it really keeps you guessing. I love the little man who is not from France.

This and season 9 were the two strongest Poirot seasons. Series 4 presented 3 classics, all very well done:
The ABC murders, one of Christie's best, was not disappointing on film. Staying on plot, this film version neatly tells the tale of Poirot's search for a serial killer who uses the alphabet and ABC railroad guides to lead the merry chase. Donald Sumpter turns in an outstanding performance as Cust; the rest of the cast is strong. A good outing.

Death in the Clouds -- one of my least favorite of her stories, this film version is excellent, with notable performances by Catheryn Harrison as Lady Horbury and the main cast. Sylish and engrossing, it is a job well done, though if you're paying attention, you can solve the mystery yourself.

One Two, Buckle My Shoe, an excellent adaptation of the original story, really can't say much to criticize. Watch for Christopher Eccleston and enjoy! Very well done.

Agatha Christie's Poirot is a wonderful series. The expenses must have been great. Everything that you can imagine are period correct. This series keeps you guessing right up until the end who is the murderer. I suggest buying all the CD's only if you like the first. I say this because if you like what you see in series one, you will love what you see it the rest of this wonderful production.
