Poirot: Series 7 and 8 Blu-ray: New Street Date

Posted June 23, 2013 03:04 PM by Webmaster

Acorn MediaAccording to the website of Acorn Media's parent company, RLJ Entertainment, Acorn is set to resume its releases of Agatha Christie's Poirot starring David Suchet. The next two series, comprised of four feature-length adaptations of the famous author's mystery novels, are now scheduled to street on October 1 in a single two-disc Blu-ray set.

Agatha Christie's beloved Belgian detective returns in these four feature-length mysteries from the hit series. Set amid the unparalleled elegance of the Art Deco era, these beautifully remastered adaptations star David Suchet as the peerless Hercule Poirot. With a little help from his friends, Captain Hastings (Hugh Fraser, Sharpe), Chief Inspector Japp (Philip Jackson, Little Voice), and Miss Lemon (Pauline Moran), Poirot unravels the most tangled cases with flair and finesse.

Series 7 and 8 include (in original broadcast order):

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd--Poirot's much-needed retreat to the countryside is interrupted by the murder of a prosperous industrialist.

Lord Edgware Dies--Following the death of a loathsome aristocrat, Poirot is stymied by his suspects' ironclad alibis.

Evil Under the Sun--A sojourn in Devon turns into an investigation for Poirot after the body of a beautiful young woman is found on the beach.

Murder in Mesopotamia--The detective travels to Iraq and finds himself embroiled in a web of rivalries, jealousy, and murder at an archaeological dig.

These are part of the A&E sets..sounds like each volume will have 2 movies..Im sure culminating in a set with all 12..
I did some research and they are from this collection.. Too bad they just couldn't do all 12 in one big volume..

Can't wait for this. I hear they are going to release the rest of them by the end of the year. Volume 12 is out in two parts; for some reason Murder on the Orient Express is by itself. I'm hoping they finish the movies and then release the rest of them.

Fantastic news, as the Spanish releases are 1080i upscales.
We get the first episode of series 13 here on TV in the UK tomorrow night These are the final 5 stories, which will be broadcast intermittently probably over the next year.

Can't wait to get them all on Blu-ray. I'm even ready to double-dip the Series 12 to get the matching covers

I'll surely be getting this to go with the rest of my Poirot collection. After seeing an earlier announcement about the whole Prime Suspect slate coming to blu-ray, can there be any hope that the entire Inspector Morse series will soon be coming to blu-ray as well? Keeping my fingers crossed.

Morse has been restored in HD as they have appeared in HD on TV here in the UK and look great. Now just waiting for someone to release them. Unfortunately wont be ITV here as they don't think TV on BD is an economic proposition and only release on DVD.
