To me, David Suchet *is* Hercule Poirot, and although not all episodes produced throughout the years are of equally high quality, overall "Poirot" remains a splendid series.

The only thing that bothers me is that yet another so-called "Complete Collection" is being released, while it has been reported in the papers that the final episodes (I think six of them, thought I do not recall exactly), including "Curtain", will be produced and broadcast in the course of this year.

So buy this collection if you cannot wait any longer, but bear in mind that in a year or so an even completer "Complete Collection" will most likely be released... the first one deserving of that title!

I agree with Mr Selitrenny - David Suchet is the definitive Poirot.

What makes this box set such good value is the visual and audio quality. Okay it's not 5.1 (Digital Mono) but I remember the series when it was on TV and the quality of the DVDs is far better.

What also shines through is:

- the quality of the acting;

- the comedy moments usually brought about by the impact of Miss Lemon and Captain Hastings - who have far bigger parts than in the books; and

- the excellent production values that mean that if you are like me and read the books a long time ago and can't quite remember the endings, each program is very cleverly put together.

I was lucky and managed to get it when it was cheaper than it currently appears to be on Amazon and other websites. My advice is still to buy it. You will be hooked and want to watch the whole set from start to finish.

It will come as no surprise to hear once again from a reviewer the accolade of the definitive Poirot being given to David Suchet but he just so very simply is. This is undoubtedly the most important part of any dramatisation of a fictional character, the actor used to play the part needs to be right. There are however at least two other elements which make Agatha Christie's Poirot such a resounding success.

First, there is the attention to detail in both the visual aspects and the stories themselves. Visually, the Poirot episodes are sumptuous and rich and the use of period props and vehicles is an outstanding achievement which to my mind has never been bettered in any period piece. In terms of the stories, things are often easier to write than they are to film and I'm thinking here of the balloon used in Hercule Poirot's Christmas or role of the wirehaired fox terrier, "Bob" in Dumb Witness and many others besides yet they all seem to work and the producers have used no easy shortcuts to tell the stories, by and large each of the crimes and investigations are as they are down on paper in the original books.

The other key ingredient to the success of thise seies is the supporting cast. While Suchet is the definitive Poirot, the same can be said of Hugh Fraser's Hastings, Philip Jackson's Japp and Pauline Moran's Miss Lemon. Staunch and solid support is offered throughout the series by these characters.

The series taken as a whole also turns out to be a little bit of a spot the famous face with further one-off great support from a variety of acting talent including James Fox, Christopher Ecclestone, Nicholas Farrell, David Soul, Zoe Wannamaker and Elliot Gould.
