Terrific acting and adherence, generally, to the books make this a superb collection with not a single Poirot or Marple in sight. When one watches these earlier productions, and reads to list of actors, one sees so many great names, a great number of which are no longer with us (sadly). Because of these names, the viewer is given a lesson in acting skill where even a 'silly' character has depth.

The Tommy and Tuppence disc (10 episodes + a feature length introduction) should not be compared with the 2015 BBC production. These are much truer to the books and remain set in the period originally intended. I'm not knocking the new series, I actually quite like them, but the episodes in this collection are 1st rate.

Whilst the acting style is based on a era long gone, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole lot.

I loved all 14 tales. Francesca Annis is as camp as Christmas playing Tuppence in Partners In Crime. Pauline Collins and the rest of the cast in Sparkling Cyanide are spot on [as is the plot]. Jean Marsh and Hermione Norris both put in superb performances as modern day witches in The Pale Horse and there is a fantastic cameo performance by Joan Hickson as Mrs Rivington in Why Didn't They Ask Evans. Costumes are spot on throughout as are sets. Mrs Rivington's all white sitting room is stunning and takes first prize for me! A delicious addition for hardened Agatha Christie fans. Re-watch and enjoy again and again with a break of a few months between of course!! Highly recommended.

A collection of the classic Agatha Christie films. Although there have been various productions of 'Sparkling Cyanide' this collection includes the one starring Pauline Collins which puts a completely different slant on the Christie story but is, nevertheless, very enjoyable. Overall, a well chosen selection.

The films are OK - the image quality leaves however somewhat to desire, but since these have been made so long ago, I imagine that quality doesn't improve during time.
