This is an excellent DVD with all props and costume as accurate as the layman could wish. However, I think Amazon should make a point of indicating where subtitles are absent because approximately 1/3 of the population has hearing difficulties.

POIROT IS ALWAYS A GOOD READ OR TV SHOW, I ENJOY RELAXING TO IT ON A WARM AFTERNOON. MAYBE SOMETIMES THERE IS A SLIGHT CHILL AND I PUT ON THE FIRE AND WRAP A CARDIGAAN ROUND MY SHOULDERS

I love this episode of the Poirot series. It is beautifully scripted, acted and filmed, with terrific period atmosphere. The story, Agatha Christie's first novel, was written in 1916 during World War 1 and set the pattern for many of her classic books - it is told in the first person by Hastings, set in a large, isolated country manor, has half-dozen suspects, most hiding secrets from their past, and the plot teases us with surprise twists and red herrings. It met with critical acclaim for its ingenuity and plotting and for Christie's knowledge of drugs.
Hercule Poirot, Inspector Japp, and Arthur Hastings are all introduced in this story. Poirot is a Belgian refugee who, helped by Emily Cavendish, sets up home near her house. Hastings, an old friend, arrives as her guest. When she is murdered, Poirot demonstrates that he is a skilled detective by solving the mystery. The main suspect is her new and much-younger husband, Alfred Inglethorpe, but it emerges that the evidence against him is contrived. He is, it seems, hated by Evelyn Howard, Emily's paid companion and disliked and mistrusted by her children and the rest of the household. But who would fabricate evidence against him?
The book was widely recognised as a very good first novel and, of course, Agatha Christie went on to a sixty year career as a detective story writer. She wasn't the world's greatest literary writer but her plots and her two famous detectives, Poirot and Miss Marple, kept people hungry for more. Her books translate very well to the screen, showing how strongly structured her stories are and how good her characterisation. To be absolutely honest, I prefer the television adaptations of her books to the books themselves. One test of a good dramatisation is whether one can watch it several times and still keep seeing new excellences of detail and getting new subtleties. I think this one certainly passes that test.
