Product Description

Another case for the Agatha Christie detective who enjoys nothing more than exercising his little grey cells. Poirot (David Suchet) is enjoying a quiet retirement when his wealthy industrialist neighbour Roger Ackroyd is brutally murdered in his study. Poirot immediately begins scrutinising Ackroyd's household, and is pleased to find that the man placed in official charge of the case is none other than his old colleague Inspector Japp (Philip Jackson).

From Amazon.co.uk

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd opens with a retired Poirot (David Suchet) cursing vegetable marrows in his country garden. When his old friend is found stabbed in the neck, Poirot begins an investigation that reunites him with Chief Inspector Japp (Philip Jackson) and uncovers a chain of furtive phone calls and secret romances. Unfortunately, the restructuring necessary to adapt the story from text to film takes away some of the shock value of Christie's original ending, which caused quite a controversy when the book was first published in 1926. --Larisa Lomacky Moore

Format: VHS Tape
The first of these two classics "The Veiled Lady" was my favorite. While inspector Japp is summoned to investigate a jewel robbery Poirot and Captain Hastings are invited to meet up with a mysterious lady who asks for their help in a problem of hers. Will Poirot be able to find any secrets from under the veil? The second of the two classics was "The lost Mine".This all starts off when Poirot starts to play monopoly with his friend Captain Hastings. After a short trip to the bank Poirot learns he is over balance. This leads Poirot to learn there are more street in London that do not appear on the monopoly Board.This classic really gives the little grey cells a challenge! In both stories Poirot is played by the very talented David Suchet. This video along with many classics must be added to your video collection.

From start to finish this series has been a treat to watch and re-watch time after time. David Suchet is incomparable as Hercule Poirot: he has the figure, looks, impeccable accent and an unbelievable acting talent. Although some of the adaptations do not adhere entirely to the Christie books, they are in every way a reflection of the spirit of them. Watching the whole canon from start to finish, one can see a development in Poirot's relationships with Inspector Japp (marvelously played by Philip Jackson), Captain Hastings (Hugh Fraser) and Miss Lemon (Pauline Moran), that is not apparent from watching occasional episodes on the television. It is well worth buying the whole lot at once just for this reason. Re-living the more romantic episodes (The Double Clue, The Chocolate Box) is also a reminder of the multi-faceted nature of the series.
Perfect for lovers of period drama and detective stories alike.

Finally the entire "Agatha Christie's Poirot" collection comes in one single box containing 31 discs, one movie per disc, two episodes per disc. David Suchet IS Poirot, having the looks, the mannerisms and even the accent. Even Hastings is near perfect.
This collection contains: The Adventure of the Clapham Cook, Murder in the Mews, The Adventure of Johnnie Waverly, 4 & 20 Blackbirds, The Third Floor Flat, Triangle At Rhodes, Problem At Sea, The Incredible Theft, The King of Clubs, The Dream, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, Lord Edgware Dies, Hercule Poirot's Christmas, Peril At End House Part 1 & 2, The Veiled Lady, The Lost Mine, The Cornish Mystery, The Disappearance of Mr Davenheim, Double Sin, The Adventure of the Cheap Flat, The Kidnapped PM, The Adventure of the Western Star, How Does Your Garden Grow?, The Million Dollar Bond Robbery, The Plymouth Express, Wasps' Nest, The Tragedy at Marsdon Manor, The Double Clue, The Mystery of the Spanish Chest, The Theft of the Royal Ruby, The Affair At The Victory Ball, The Mystery of Hunter's Lodge, The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb, The Underdog, Yellow Iris, The Case of The Missing Will, The Adventure of the Italian Nobleman, The Chocolate Box, The Dead Man's Mirror, Jewel Robbery at the Grand Metropolitan, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, The ABC Murders, Hickory Dickory Dock, Dumb Witness , Murder On The Links, Death In The Clouds, One Two Buckle My Shoe, Murder in Mesopotomia, Evil Under The Sun.
It's probably the greatest whodunnit ever, the one-hour episodes are good, but this collection really shines on the 13 full-length movies. All of these are faithful adaptations of Agatha Christie's books. Dame Christie's fans will be delighted, but mystery fans in general won't be disappointed either.

I can always sit down with a cup of coco and bury myself in an Agatha Christie novel. Well now, i can sit down with a cup of coco in front of the TV and 'watch' an Agatha Christie novel. Of all her cleverly minded detectives, i have to say that my personal favourite is Hercule Poirot and his 'little grey cells'. Hastings adds a bit depth to the whole thing as well. In this fabulous DVD collection there are the following titles: The Adventure of the Clapham Cook, Murder in the Mews, The Adventure of Johnnie Waverly, 4 & 20 Blackbirds, The Third Floor Flat, Triangle At Rhodes, Problem At Sea, The Incredible Theft, The King of Clubs, The Dream, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, Lord Edgware Dies, Hercule Poirot's Christmas, Peril At End House Part 1 and 2, The Veiled Lady, The Lost Mine, The Cornish Mystery, The Disappearance of Mr Davenheim, Double Sin, The Adventure of the Cheap Flat, The Kidnapped PM, The Adventure of the Western Star, How Does Your Garden Grow?, The Million Dollar Bond Robbery, The Plymouth Express, Wasps' Nest, The Tragedy at Marsdon Manor, The Double Clue, The Mystery of the Spanish Chest, The Theft of the Royal Ruby, The Affair At The Victory Ball, The Mystery of Hunter's Lodge, The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb, The Underdog, Yellow Iris, The Case of The Missing Will, The Adventure of the Italian Nobleman, The Chocolate Box, The Dead Man's Mirror, Jewel Robbery at the Grand Metropolitan, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, The ABC Murders, Hickory Dickory Dock, Dumb Witness , Murder On The Links, Death In The Clouds, One Two Buckle My Shoe, Murder in Mesopotomia and Evil Under The Sun.
Well, as you can see, there is a great choice to chose from so order it NOW!
