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]

[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?]

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!
