James Warwick & Francesca Annis are the absolute tops . If you find the more recent Poirot & Marple episodes a bit too heavey going then this is the series for you . The period is well captured and the casting is top draw . The guest stars are a treat in Tommy & Tuppence while The Seven Dials Mystery is a captivating show . Why Did't They Ask Evens ? does go on a bit long - all three hours of it ! But Sir John Gielgud is always good value - as an actor he improves all that he stars in ! The first Tommy & Tuppence programme is very true to that fine novel and it is nice to see good old George Barker from Wexford cropping up . This is a lovely way to unwind after a long day at work or to relax on a quiet Sunday afternoon . I find one or two epsisodes at a time is my viewing ration for this - just watch it and see what you think ! This was my first on-line purchase from Amazon.com and certainly justified buying my multi -region DVD player !
