A wonderful performance

For fans of mystery and a time period when people were more civilized, more well read.

Too little of good thing

I love these dramatised adaptations that bring ACs books to life. These are spectacularly done but too short!

Would love to have them longer because that is how good they are!

Marvellous Marple!

Another excellent bunch of stories/plays which again has sated my Mrs Christie addiction. Excellent dramatisations with Miss Marple played by June Whitefield and an excellent cast supporting her. Nemesis has always been my favourite Christie book and I was 'fair chuffed' to see it was included in this set which also included some lesser known works by the author. Overall and excellent listen.

To listen to this I sat on my favourite comfy chair, grabbed a hot chocolate, shut the rain out and didn't move till I had heard them all! A perfect day :)

Love the stories - hate the adverts

I have no idea why this audiobook has 2 minute long adverts for this very product (as well as the Poirot audiobooks) between each story. I've tried to contact BBC studios directly about this - but there doesn't seem to be an easy channel for this feedback. Ruins what is an otherwise good set of dramatisations.

Ruined by adverts

I think it is ridiculous that, having paid for an audiobook, I then have to listen to a two minute advert - not just once, but repeated in between each individual play. Ruined an otherwise good audiobook.

master of crime

Reliving the Agatha Christie novels is a great pleasure. I read all her books as a child and still have the complete collection. Now I can listen to them in the car as I drive my long drives.
Will always love her works :)
