More About the Author

Born in Torquay in 1890, Agatha Christie began writing during the First World War and wrote over 100 novels, plays and short story collections. She was still writing to great acclaim until her death, and her books have now sold over a billion copies in English and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. Yet Agatha Christie was always a very private person, and though Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple became household names, the Queen of Crime was a complete enigma to all but her closest friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent as usual 25 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm building up quite a collection of these Radio 4 dramas based on Agatha Christie's novels and, on the whole, I'm enjoying them enormously. Having planned to only buy a few of my favourites among the novels, I can well imagine that I'll end up buying most of them eventually because the quality is so good. John Moffat is an excellent Poirot, the accent understated and the humour very subtle but always there. There is a moment near the end of this adaptation of 'After The Funeral' as Poirot is about to launch into his denoument and someone says 'Why can't you just tell us straight out who did it?" Poirot replies, 'Because it is my way!" I like that, it explains the inherent artificial set up of gathering all the suspects for the long explanation, and I smiled!

Anyway, I've always like 'After The Funeral'. I like the characters and the solution is really rather fun and quite ingenious. Christie gives one of her most interesting murderers and the victim is also interesting in her own way. As with most of these radio adaptations, the script is very faithful to the book and the voice acting is pretty much impeccable. At approx an hour and a half its one of the shorter plays but I don't think anything is lost and the whole thing is very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars "After all he was murdered, wasn't he?" 2 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
Cora disrupts the reading on a will by asking "after all he was murdered wasn't he?" and the fun begins. Classic Christie superbly produced. Perfect for a rainy evening with a cup of coccoa. Don Wardell KWXY Radio Palm Springs.

4.0 out of 5 stars My opinion 5 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
Very good presentation. The dramatisation is really excellent, makes the plot clear and easy to follow. Very entertaining. My only trouble is that I finished it sooner than expected since I really wanted it to last three or four days!

Got this for my mum for Christmas and she listens to it often. It's one of the one's that's been televised but don't expect the televised versions will be exactly the same as these versions more closely resemble the books.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Moffatt creates a fine M. Poirot... 14 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This BBC radio drama was originally broadcast in August 1999 and has Michael Bakewell's dramatisation and Enyd Williams direction bringing to life for the listener the story "After the Funeral" by Agatha Christie. The 90 minutes running time allows the story to be fully developed and the characters nostalgically English almost pop out of the speakers whilst you listen. John Moffatt was still to play the role of M. Poirot many more times establishing him as the definitive radio Poirot. Listen out for Frank Thornton as the barrister Mr Entwhistle who is the person that becomes suspicious at the sudden deaths of Richard Abernethie and his younger sister Cora and here the mystery starts. This is one of the most entertaining of Agatha Christie's stories and well worth having on CD to listen to at your leisure. Nicely packaged these are very good value and like the books of Agatha Christie make an excellent collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a Sutchet Poirot.
Very disappointed with this CD. The actor portraying Poirot didn't sound at all foreign and sometimes lapsed completely into English. The story was good but the narrator was not.
