While Agatha Christie movies are usually very good, I’m afraid that these titles appeared during the 1980’s, which was not particularly an apt time to use Joan Hickson. She’s a remarkable actress, but clearly quite old at this time. I still think there’s quite a bit of merit in these titles, but I don’t suggest you use this series as a hallmark to your collection. Mind you, Magaret Rutherford’s Agatha Christie collection is worth adding to your collection, despite her age during the course of the series.

Enter commentI rented Miss M along with 2 other videos a week ago. I WAS able to download one purchase but UNABLE to download this & 1 other. I have emailed Amazon 3 times. The first 2 times I received replies re: ways to fix the problem so that I might receive the others. (I had no problem downloading the 1st purchase on the same computer with same settings.) The 3rd email I sent several days ago & have received no response. I have requested a credit to no avail. The UNBOX is UNSATISFACTORY

Great 4-part mystery series – well-done casting – and technically, our DVD’s were splendid and faithful reproductions of a beloved series.

For any potential buyers who have been put off by references to picture quaility, I would like to say that I found the DVD picture quality much better than the video versions and vastly superior to that seen when the series is shown on North American television (I can’t answer for present British television but I remember the normal picture quality there as being clearer than any I have come across here). This was viewing using a brand X DVD player, s-video connection and a Triton screen so the absolute quality may vary from that seen by other reveiwers but the comparison is still valid.
As for any cuts remaining, it may have been nice to have the one mentioned in a previous review reinstated, but one of the good things about A&E videos and DVDs is that you get a much more complete version than you would in subsequent reshowings on television when the number of cuts tends to increase to fit in more advertising (so much so that in one British programme- not a Miss Marple one- of which I saw the first episode in England and then watched the complete 2-episode programme in North America, the name of one actress appeared in the opening credits but her performance had been completely cut from the programme.)
It would be sad if anyone was put off seeing the excellent content of this set because of reservations of DVD production and more sad still if A&E were put off bringing out the second series because of it.

This set is causing me problems in that there are two movies on one dvd, and I cannot access the second movie.
