If you don’t already own, or want this upgraded image, Poirot is 6 star. REMASTERED set 5 is 8 Poirots. Belgian with `little gray cell’ out-sleuths `The Yard.’ David Suchet made Poirot famous. Philip Jackson plays Chief Inspector Japp in last 5 episodes. Hastings (Hugh Fraser) Poirot’s right-hand is available for all but one episode. Miss Lemon (Pauline Moran) in 6 episodes. Agatha Christie stories always fantastic, but Suchet makes the film adaptations soar to new heights. Humor, scenic bliss, and costume lust rival the script writing. Poirot stories began a 1920s…
