Review by Library Journal Review

David Suchet here returns as Hercule Poirot in this set also known as Hercule Poirot: Series XI when it aired earlier this year on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery. In Three Act Tragedy (originally titled Tragedy in Three Acts), Poirot teams up with old friend and retired actor Sir Charles Cartwright (Martin Shaw) to find the killer as guests at successive dinner parties mysteriously and suddenly die. In The Clocks, Poirot discovers prewar, pro-Nazi subterfuge as he unearths the identity and the killers of an unidentified body. In Hallowe'en Party, Poirot joins with crime novelist Ariadne Oliver (Zoe Wannamaker) to solve the murder of a young girl during a holiday party. The pieces are wonderfully acted by, among others, Jane Asher, Art Malik, Kimberly Nixon, Anna Massey, Sophie Thompson, Deborah Findlay, and Amelia Bullmore. As expected from PBS and ITV Studios, the production values, editing, cinematography, and music are all excellent. The Blu-ray version (not seen) should make locations on Dover's Cornish coast, the mansion interiors, and the formal gardens look absolutely gorgeous! This collection is highly recommended for all mystery fans.-Cliff Glaviano, formerly with Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., OH (c) Copyright 2011.
