Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
Classic mysteries from Hercule Poirot's casebook are deftly realized in this collector's set, finding Agatha Christie's famed fictional sleuth in rare form. The three episodes here are from the London Weekend Television series and were part of the second set of Poirot dramatizations to air on PBS's Mystery! in the early 1990s. "The Disappearance of Mr. Davenheim" concerns the mysterious vanishing of a rich banker, which Poirot proposes to solve without leaving his apartment. It's a sharp mystery enlivened by some amusing scenes in which Poirot learns magic, and watching the Belgian sleuth display some card tricks and other sleight-of-hand feats is a distinct pleasure. In "The Veiled Lady," Poirot comes to the aid of a duchess who's being blackmailed. The fun here comes in watching him work undercover, donning a disguise -- complete with a bicycle -- to aid this damsel in distress, while the mystery unfolds with some well-disguised twists of its own. "The Lost Mine" concerns an elusive Asian and his map of a long-lost silver mine, a mystery that takes Poirot into the opium dens of London's Chinatown. Beautiful production design evoking 1930s Art Deco elegance distinguishes this series from the start, completely in tune with Poirot's sophisticated tastes in clothing, food, and interior d├ęcor. David Suchet's portrayal of the refined detective remains nothing short of perfect -- smug, supremely confident, but somehow completely lovable.

    David Suchet is, as always, great as Poirot.

    Of course, this is enjoyable. Poirot always is. The acting is first class; scripts are interesting; stories well presented.
