Review by Library Journal Review

Starred Review. For many mystery fans, the release of this set of DVDs will mark the end of an era. Twenty-five years ago, David Suchet began his definitive portrayal of Agatha Christie's iconic detective Hercule Poirot. Now with this series, Suchet completes filming every one of the novels and short stories featuring the fussy yet brilliant Belgian sleuth. Included here are The Big Four, Dead Man's Folly, Elephants Can Remember, The Labours of Hercules, and Curtain; the latter three have yet to be broadcast on PBS stations in the United States. With its impeccably detailed costumes and gorgeous settings, wonderfully engaging turns from guest stars including Zoe Wanamaker as Ariadne Oliver, and Suchet's spot-on performance as Poirot, this first-rate series will be treasured by fans as well as irresistible to anyone who enjoys Golden Age mysteries. VERDICT The continuing popularity of all things Christie (who, once again, hit the New York Times best sellers list this year with The Monogram Murders by Sophie Hannah) makes this an essential purchase for public libraries or any library where traditional British mysteries are in demand.-John Charles, Scottsdale P.L., AZ (c) Copyright 2014.
