Description
"Peril at End House"—the first feature-length episode of the Poirot series—captures gorgeous location footage at a Cornish resort where Poirot and Hastings must foil an apparent murder plot directed at a young beauty (Polly Walker). In "Dumb Witness," a wealthy woman fears she's about to be killed for her fortune by a family member; to investigate, Poirot must enlist the help of her fox terrier. Playing two eccentric sisters are Pauline Jameson and Muriel Pavlow, who previously appeared in the Miss Marple series starring Margaret Rutherford. A "locked room" scenario in which the many relatives of a misanthropic rich man all have reasons to wish him dead, "Hercule Poirot's Christmas" is a classic country house murder mystery set in a snowy English village. 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.

"This elegant episode ["Hercule Poirot's Christmas"] features a nice little vintage film calendar motif, showing four days surrounding Christmas as Poirot arrives at the Lee Estate and then unravels the nefarious goings-on…. It's wonderful when revisiting these episodes to pay attention the often hilarious offhanded comments the characters say to each other, and their resultant reactions.... It's these recurring characters and their wonderful interplay that makes Poirot such an unending delight."—DVDTalk
