Agatha Christie's Poirot: Series 6 Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Now remastered & in original U.K. broadcast order As seen on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery!

David Suchet stars as Agatha Christie's mustachioed mystery-solver in these four feature-length episodes from the hit series. Poirot investigates the baffling cases with the help of Captain Hastings (Hugh Fraser, Sharpe), Chief Inspector Japp (Philip Jackson, Little Voice), and Miss Lemon (Pauline Moran). Newly remastered, these editions capture every opulent detail of Art Deco-era Europe. Guest stars include Damian Lewis (Homeland, Band of Brothers) and Kate Buffery (Wish Me Luck).

Review: If you've never seen the classic series Poirot, then you're missing out!  This mystery show is a fantastic example of British programming.  This blu-ray gives fans four episodes to enjoy. 

(original U.K. broadcast order)
Hercule Poirot's Christmas-The detective's hopes for a quiet holiday are dashed when he must investigate a murder at a wealthy man's country estate.
Hickory Dickory Dock-After making several errors at work, Miss Lemon confesses that she's worried sick about a series of thefts at the hostel her sister runs.
Murder on the Links-Poirot's reputation precedes him during a vacation in France, leading to his involvement in a case of abduction and murder.
Dumb Witness-When the premonitions of two sisters come to gruesome life, Poirot and Hastings solve a murder by communicating with a silent witness.

Our favorite episode from this release was "Murder on the Links".  I think its really fun to see a character out of their element and thrown into foreign ground.  Poirot ends up finding some challenges solving the mystery in France, even though his vast reputation as a sleuth preceeds him there.  We recommend this release for any fan of the show.  Its great to see it in high-definition!
