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):
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd;
Lord Edgware Dies.
Evil Under the Sun;
Murder in Mesopotamia.
Five Little Pigs;
Death on the Nile;
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.
Poirot is still one of my favorites.

I bought this collection 5 years ago for $87 CAD. Great episodes! David Suchet is the very best Poirot.Published 18 months ago by Amazon Customer
