Overview

There’s a murderer on the moors. Terror on the train. Villains in the village! Only the world’s greatest deductive minds can save the day. Fortunately, Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple are together, for the first time ever, to confront their most confounding cases in this Great Detectives Anthology. Literature’s greatest sleuths are brought to life by the actors born to play the roles. As portrayed by Peter Cushing, the definitive Sherlock Holmes exercises his legendary deductive skills in five classic BBC productions from the fall of 1969, including The Hound of the Baskervilles, A Study in Scarlet, and The Sign of Four. Meanwhile, Dame Agatha’s diminutive detective, Hercule Poirot, portrayed with fastidious elegance by the inimitable David Suchet, applies his "little grey cells" to ferret out the cause of a Death on the Nile and solve The Mystery of the Blue Train, among other Christie classics. Rounding out the trio, Joan Hickson received an Order of the British Empire for her portrayal of the brilliant spinster Miss Jane Marple, who is here to untangle the riddles of the Murder at the Vicarage, The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side, and 8 more. The 12-disc set includes 18 classic cases.
