Delightful

I have always loved listening to John Moffat as Hercule Poirot. I grew up listening to these dramatizations; and, I still find myself listening to this over and over again. Even when I know who did it, it is still fun to go back and listen for missed clues in these masterful performances. Agatha Christie was the queen of mystery; and, John Moffat brought Poirot to life in a way only he could. I just hope everyone can fall in love with these the way I have.

All Great Performances

I just love these dramatisations - John Moffat on Radio is as good as David Suchet on tv when it comes to Poirot. These are just perfect to listen to when falling asleep/driving or my guilty pleasure of a long bath and putting one of these on :)
Worth the money!

Standout performances and stories

What a wonderful discovery these were! Both this and the first set of BBC radio dramatisations have been well worth the listen with really great voice performances and sound effects where needed. The stories themselves are well written as you would expect with good twists to keep you engaged. John Moffat really is the perfect Poirot.

Worth the investment

Good acting, good story, and a worthwhile listen. The only complaint I may have is that I would wish for a few more stories.

Love Agatha Christie

I really enjoyed Agatha Christie stories performed by top notch radio actors. I wish the scripts were a little more extensive. Some of the stories were too short.

Wonderfully entertaining

I was pleased when this new series of stories was realised after the first collection. Having listened to the first series so many times and still enjoying them, it was great to add more Poirot to my collection. Highly recommend. I love having the stories in the background for company whilst I work. Can’t wait for the third collection! Totally love John Moffat’s portrayal - big fan. More please!!

Absolutely Stunning

This drama version of these books was wonderfully done. I felt pulled deep into the stories and found them so intense sometimes I couldn't stop them until I'd heard all of the story. For anyone that is a avid reader of Agatha Christie will love this dramatization.

Fantastic,but why not compiled in broadcast order?

Whilst you don’t need to listen to Agatha Christie’s ‘Poirot’ particularly in any set order, I do wonder why these two collections have been organised so randomly. Is there any reason to their order? It isn’t in book or broadcast order. The first set contain the better stories and are more recently dramatised.

[Book number - Year published] Name [Date broadcast by BBC]

Poirot’s Finest Cases:

[13 1936] The ABC Murders [BBC 2000]
[31 1953] After the Funeral [BBC 1999]
[17 1937] Death on the Nile [BBC 1997]
[04 1926] The Murder of Roger Ackroyd [BBC 1987]
[10 1934] Murder on the Orient Express [BBC 1992]
[01 1920] The Mysterious Affair at Styles [BBC 2005]
[08 1932] Peril at End House [BBC 2000]
[11 1935] Three Act Tragedy [BBC 2002]

More of Poirot’s Finest Cases:

[24 1941] Evil Under the Sun [BBC 1998]
[22 1940] Sad Cypress [BBC 1992]
[14 1936] Murder in Mesopotamia [BBC 1994]
[09 1933] Lord Edgware Dies [BBC 1992]
[39 1969] Hallowe’en Party [BBC 1992]
[02 1923] Murder on the Links [BBC 1990]
[25 1942] Five Little pigs [BBC 1994]

Expect there will be a third, and possibly a fourth, compilation as there are a further 10 Poirot stories dramatised by BBC Radio featuring John Moffatt.


[Anybody notice the incorrect spelling of John Moffatt’s name on the ‘More’ compilation?]

Not as good as the first collection

Exciting stories, full of twists and turns. However, this selection has more of the slightly ridiculous, overblown stories. It's well worth listening he to nonetheless, especially 5 little pigs, even if just to hear Poirot say 'wee wee wee all the way home' in a deadly serious tone.

Stand alone or bingeworthy

Well cast, of it's time of course but still very enjoyable. Bbc4 production so you know what to expect. Perfect for car journey.

As with the first collection I thoroughly enjoyed the dramatic versions of Agatha Christie's work. Hope there is a third collection. Can be listened to again and again.

Excellent as always

The performances are great. Just that the stories lack a bit of that 'bite' and suspense in the first series.
