5.0 out of 5 stars Agatha Christies Poirot: Set 5, 29 Mar. 2006
This review is from: Agatha Christie's Poirot - Collection 5 [DVD] (DVD)
This set contains some of the best dramatisations of Poirot stories that have been made by Granada. The best, I feel, is Five Little Pigs. This, in my view, a little known masterpiece and is the most beautiful of Poirot dramatisations. This displays the stylish quality of these productions. The Hollow is also wonderfully produced and Death on the Nile is exceptional. These stunning 21st Cenmtury adaptations portray Agatha Christie's skill in keeping the viewer or reader guessing until the very end.

Five Little Pigs was adult not childish, I would say. Dame Agatha grew up, so should her viewers. Not that the early adaptations are enjoyable (thye did wonders especially with the short stories), but not every episode has to be the same. Her books were not.

Peter Ustinov - bulky,oafish ,and lacking the mannerisms of the character in the books spoils what may have been an acceptable version of this work, He is a caricature of the character, one must go to David Suchet to find the ideal portrayal
The cast remaining were very good, but one cannot accept the Ustinov lead.
