Poirot: Series 10 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

In what is a first in my experience of reviewing Poirot on Blu-ray, there is a noticeable variation among the quality of the episodes in Series 10. The difference may result from various shooting styles, given that each episode had a different director and cinematographer. None of the episodes look bad by any means, and certainly none of them exhibit the problems that plagued the whole of Series 7 & 8, but the variable quality was obvious in viewing these two 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-rays.

Cards on the Table is the weakest of the four, with the softest and least detailed image and noticeable grain. "Least detailed" in this context still means that the image has enough detail to allow appreciation of Mr. Shaitana's ornate residence, where the first half of the episode is set, and of the various suspects' homes and places of work, where subsequent interviews occur. The blacks of the gentlemen's evening wear are solid, and the colors are vibrant and saturated.

The remaining three episodes in Series 10 are all significantly sharper and more detailed, with After the Funeral taking top honors, followed closely by Taken at the Flood and The Mystery of the Blue Train. All three have finely resolved images with little or no noise, lively and varied palettes, good blacks and well-adjusted contrast. On the whole, Series 10 maintains the standards sets by Acorn's early releases of Poirot, but ever since the show entered the era where the A&E Network acted as co-producer, the video quality of Acorn's releases cannot be assumed.


Poirot: Series 10 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0 remains Acorn Media's new audio standard for Poirot, and the stereo sound mixes for these four episodes are consistent with prior episodes under the new regime. Certain key sound effects (notably, the train engine, whistles and wheels in The Mystery of the Blue Train) are more prominent than the usual sound editing, but dialogue still has priority. With Series 10, scoring duties were taken over by Stephen McKeon (Primeval), who provided a more lush orchestral presence that at times recalls the elegiac tone of the late John Barry.
