Editorial Reviews

As seen on PBS’s Masterpiece Mystery!

The impeccable Hercule Poirot is back on the case in these 11 mysteries from the hit series. David Suchet is "a near-perfect Poirot" (USA Today), portraying Agatha Christie’s beloved Belgian with intelligence and bone-dry wit. Brimming with beguiling 1930s period details, these lavish adaptations look better than ever in this remastered edition. Also starring Hugh Fraser (Sharpe) as the affable Captain Hastings, Philip Jackson (Little Voice) as Chief Inspector Japp, and Pauline Moran as Miss Lemon.

    REissued, hard to find episodes, with visual upgrades. Any POIROT set is just plain GOOD murder mystery. Agatha Christie suspense perfect. David Suchet acting excellence. Combined they make any British Mystery viewer salivate. Add top guest stars in each.
    SUBTITLES for the hearing and dialect challenged.

    Episodes on disc one:
    The Mysterious Affair at Styles-Hastings finally joins Poirot on a case
    How Does Your Garden Grow?-it's a murder case
    The Million Dollar Bond Robbery-going international on this bank case
    Disc 2
    The Plymouth Express-it's intrigue, it's romantic, it's also death
    Wasps' Nest-camera work by Hastings give Poirot the edge in this case
    The Tragedy at Marsdon Manor-an author's plot to solve
    The Double Clue-jewel theft, but is that a romantic Poirot?
    Disc 3
    The Mystery of the Spanish Chest-Guess who's corpse is coming to dinner
    The Theft of the Royal Ruby-Prince of Egypt knows not where to turn; Poirot?
    The Affair at the Victory Ball-All dressed up for the party & 2 to die
    The Mystery of Hunter's Lodge-Watch where & who your shooting

    Agatha Christie's Poirot has proven to be of the best filmed period mystery ever produced. It's what fans have come to expect with Poirot, Agatha Christie, Masterpiece Mystery, and the untouchable as Hercule Poirot--David Suchet.

    BOTH the Blu-rays and NEW DVDs are NEWLY REMASTERED and RESTORED to their original U.K. broadcast order. This is wonderful mystery TV, never to get out of date. You WILL love every episode.

    The Mysterious Affair at Styles (September 16, 1990)
    "Hercule Poirot's ability to crack the thorniest criminal cases with unparalleled savoir faire has made Dame Agatha Christie's brilliant sleuth the most-watched detective in the history of the PBS Mystery! series and a resounding hit on A&E. Set in the summer of 1917, The Mysterious Affair at Styles follows the war-wounded Hastings (Hugh Fraser) to the Styles St. Mary estate of his friend John Cavendish. The Cavendish household is wrought with tension due to the marriage of John's widowed mother to a suspicious younger man. In the village, Hastings runs into his old friend Hercule Poirot (David Suchet), a famous Belgian detective. When the estate's trouble turns deadly, the friends unite to solve a most baffling case."

    2. How Does Your Garden Grow? (January 6, 1991)
    "Poirot comes up smelling sweet when he looks to the garden for clues in a murder case."

    3. The Million Dollar Bond Robbery (January 13, 1991)
    "Poirot and Hastings untangle an international banking caper on the high seas."

    4. The Plymouth Express (January 20, 1991)
    "After a fateful train trip, a case of romantic intrigue turns deadly."

    5. Wasps' Nest (January 27, 1991)
    "Poirot gets stung by a wasp and struck by a feeling that all is not well in the life of a friend's son."

    6. The Tragedy at Marsdon Manor (February 3, 1991)
    "After refusing to stoop to fictional crime-solving, Poirot is soon occupied by a real whodunit."

    7. The Double Clue (February 10, 1991)
    "While Hastings and Miss Lemon work on a high-profile case, Poirot romances a beautiful countess."

    We're hooked! A series of mysteries that can keep a 15 year old boy and an 11 year old girl enthralled in this day and age is a tribute to Agatha Christie's writing. David Suchet was meant to play this part. He becomes Hercule Poirot.

    I'm a big Agatha Christie fan. I own every book, short story, and play I could get. I found these videos and the others I've bought very enjoyable, but I don't think Dame Agatha would! If you're a purist, you may not appreciate these, but I did, once I got used to them, although some of them cross a line that I am sure Agatha would not approve of, and neither do I. I like Hugh Fraser as Hastings much better than the man who plays him in the videos with Peter Ustinov. I think he has class and is an excellent foil for Poirot. I miss him in the shows where he's absent.

    I love this series! Agatha Christie was one of the best crime\mystery writers of all time & David Suchet is in my opinion the perfect Poirot! It is typical Agatha Christie work, it keeps you guessing until the end while offering you a slueth you love to pieces and are routing for from the first!

    This was a group of episodes that I had no recollection of ever watching. I don't know if PBS ever carried them or they were only on BBC. We had purchased the episodes that were on A&E and there were a couple of them I recalled seeing on A&E. David Suchet plays the character far better than anyone previously and maybe the best character actor after Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes. Watch them.

    We enjoyed the Poirot episodes when they came out in the 1980's. With so little to enjoy on television now, we decided to order several of our old favorites such as Poirot, Miss Marple, Cadfael, Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett), and Frost. We plan to also order Morse and Are You Being Served? for some laughs. These series are tried and true. We are getting a lot of enjoyment re-watching all these excellent classics.
