Poirot at its best
on 21 May 2003
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.
