Agatha Christie's compact, fastidious, and brilliant detective Hercule Poirot made his first appearance in her 1920 novel The Mysterious Affair at Styles (as did his pal Lieutenant Hastings, recently returned from World War I). In "The ABC Murders," time is of the essence, as a serial killer taunts Poirot in letters foreshadowing his crimes. And when a killer stalks a London student hostel run by his secretary's sister, Poirot steps in to trap the culprit. ("Miss Lemon is a wonderful character, full of her own quirks, and Moran plays them all beautifully. But Philip Jackson's Inspector Japp also has some very funny business in this episode," writes DVD Verdict of "Hickory Dickory Dock," "notably when he moves in with Poirot, creating a sort of Oscar and Felix Odd Couple subplot.") David Suchet is perfection as Agatha Christie's mustachioed mystery solver in these feature-length episodes from the wildly popular British series. These editions capture every opulent detail that we love so well; filled with opulent Art Deco–era details and pitch-perfect performances, all of the lavish adaptations have been newly remastered and restored to their original U.K. broadcast order.

"Christie's work may follow a formula—a baffling murder, a slew of suspects (most of whom have unexpected connections to each other, often transgenerational), and frequently evocative settings. But somehow having it all anchored by the natty little Belgian detective brings a whole new delight to each enterprise…. These longer efforts offer a more leisurely pace that is more in keeping with Christie's original novels."—DVDTalk
