    And the winner is...

    David Poirot, or Hercule Suchet? Hard to say, in the end I just couldn't tell one from the other. As if Agatha Christie's eccentric private eye and his diligent little grey cells hadn't been famous enough already, the 'Agatha Christie: Poirot' TV series brought again to life the mystery-solving adventures of the beloved detective. But what a show, and what a treat!

    Suchet's Poirot is by far more exuberant than Albert Finney's, cuter and more Belgian than Peter Ustinov's, more sophisticated than Sir Ian Holm's. 'Agatha Christie: Poirot' achieved probably the most accurate portrayal of the main character, matched with truly breathtaking visuals of the '20s, '30s and 40's. All episodes are so beautifully crafted, one could watch them again and again, enjoying them no less although the mystery has been revealed...

    All things considered, I had a hard time waiting for the DVD box set release, especially that 'Poirot - The Classic Collection' has a written introduction by David Suchet himself. As Poirot would put it, 'not only for ze connaisseurs, mes amis'

    An absolute must if you are a fan of the series

    This complete collection of the TV series is a must have collector item for the true Poirot fan! Use caution however when removing the DVDs from the case; it is quite difficult as the DVDs fit quite snuggly -- I accidently broke one.
