Overview

First filmed as a theatrical feature in 1982, Agatha Christie's 1940 mystery novel Evil Under the Sun was remade as a two-hour episode of the off-and-on British TV series Poirot. David Suchet is back as the infuriatingly brilliant and fussy Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, who after suffering a fainting spell at a posh restaurant is whisked off to a fancy health resort along the Devon Coast. As he recuperates, Poirot is able to relax, secure in the belief that he can give his sleuthing a bit of a well-deserved result. Alas, this is not to be. Another guest at the resort, a world-famous actress, is murdered -- and virtually everyone else in the vicinity had both motive and opportunity to do the dirty deed. First telecast in the U.K. in 2001. Evil Under the Sun made its America bow on July 13, 2003, courtesy of the A&E cable network.

Editorial Reviews

From the Producers
Cross over the shadowy doorstep and into the sinister world of crime writing’s Grand Dame, Agatha Christie, in this unprecedented 17-disc collection of classic mysteries. Lock the door, sit down, and have a cup of tea as Christie mystery-solvers Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot get to the bottom of 21 spine-tingling murder cases. David Suchet stars as the beloved Belgian sleuth, Hercule Poirot, braving some of Christie’s most notable and unpredictable plot twists in some of her most memorable tales. Lavish settings, shining supporting casts, and rich period details bring 12 Poirot classics to life. Also on the case in 9 mysteries of her own is Miss Jane Marple, a consummate lady and an unflappable crime-stopper with intuition sharper than her knitting needles. Portrayed by Christie’s personal choice for the role, veteran stage actress Joan Hickson, Miss Marple artfully the crimes she encounters with skill and a touch of class. With 35 hours of suspense, misdirection, and peerless sleuthing, the Agatha Christie Crime Anthology offers hours of fascination.

    I am a mystery buff and any mystery buff knows that Agatha Christi is the queen of the mystery story. There have been many actors to portray Poirot, but none like Succhet. He is wonderful. To know that I can pop in a DVD of one of these puzzling mysteries anytime I want is just a great joy. The cosy mystery genre is no longer a regular part of the weekly TV lineup. Thank you so much for this collection of Agatha Christi mysteries. My mom and I are enjoying them immensely.
