I love David Suchet as Poirot. He is adorable, loveable, pleasantly irritating and amusingly self-centered, not to mention brilliant! Suchet leaves nothing to be desired to an avid fan that has read every single Agatha Christie book and play published and finds in Poirot her favourite fictional detective of all times.

This set includes 12 of the movie-length adaptations. They are increasingly higher in image quality, probably due to increase in budget. On the other hand, in certain episodes you can also notice some liberties taken in the script that clearly strays from Agatha's books. This, however, doesn't diminish the entertaining quality of the episodes. The episodes included in this set are (in order of TV air dates):

Season 7
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd;
Lord Edgware Dies.

Season 8
Evil Under the Sun;
Murder in Mesopotamia.

Season 9
Five Little Pigs;
Sad Cypress;
Death on the Nile;
The Hollow.

Season 10
The Mystery of the Blue Train;
Cards on the Table;
After the Funeral and
Taken at the Flood.

There's not much in the way of extras: just an index of Agatha Christie Poirot stories, plus Christie's and Suchet's biographies.

All of the Poirot series episodes that have been released on DVD are included in this set along with "Poirot Classic Collection", "Agatha Christie's Poirot: The Classic Collection 2", "Poirot Set 4 Classic Collection" and "Agatha Christie's Poirot: The Movie Collection - Set 5". I found this the best way to have them all, pay the best price and not get one single repeat. The Season 12 episodes "The clocks", "Three-act tragedy" and "Hallowe'en party" have not yet been released.

David Suchet is the be-all end-all quintessential "M. Poirot". The "Definitive Collection" holds all the movie-length A&E productions of Poirot mysteries. It was well priced at Amazon compared to other DVD houses. The only thing holding me back from a 5-star rating is that the A&E discs seem a bit flimsy compared to regular DVD movies. Otherwise, it is a truly enjoyable compendium of mysteries!

David Suchet is the definitive Poirot, and in this collection, well-cast and effectively produced mélange of Christie classics, he is at his peak of performance. A highly enjoyable selection, well worth the price of admission.

I enjoyed these adaptations very much. David Suchet is the best Poirot up to now and there are many other very good actors too. Well chosen places of filming, splendid costumes - all very entertaining.
