Excellent and stays true to the book...only one thing spoils it though, 2 December 2009
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

Lord Edgware Dies was an excellent and intriguing book from the Queen of Crime, and this adaptation is near perfect and is very true in style and in content to it despite a few forgivable liberties. It is a vast improvement over the disappointing Murder of Roger Ackroyd, that is one of Christie's finest works, and like Cards on the Table the adaptation started off well but completely unravelled at the end. I will say what I love about these Poirot adaptations are that they are so well made and acted, especially Five Little Pigs, Sad Cypress, The ABC Murders, Peril at End House and After the Funeral. About Lord Edgware Dies, I have only one complaint of the entire adaptation, and I will say I am not the first person to point it out. At the dinner scene, the idea ideally is that Jane Wilkinson is played by two different actresses(or something along the lines of that). However, it was obvious sadly that in the adaptation, she was played by the same actress. However, putting that qualm aside, the adaptation is stunningly filmed, the sets and locations are wondrous and the costumes are beautiful. Jane Wilkinson's clothes especially are eye popping. Along with Murder in Mesopotamia, Hickory Dickory Dock and (especially) One Two Buckle My Shoe, this has to be the adaptation with the creepiest music. I remember getting jumpy every time I heard a knock on the door, and I admit it I still am. The acting is exceptional, with David Suchet impeccable as Poirot-I know I use this phrase a lot but I can't find any other glowing terms to praise his performances- and Hugh Fraser wonderfully naive as Hastings. Phillip Jackson and Pauline Moran both do a great job as Japp and Miss Lemon, and John Castle is suitably odious as Lord Edgware. But Helen Grace was outstanding as Jane Wilkinson, not only she look gorgeous, but she was exactly like I imagined Jane to be. All in all, as Poirot would say, c'est magnifique! And you know what, I prefer it over the Peter Ustinov TV movie, that was good, but lacked the polish of this adaptation, which is by far one of the better ones. 9/10 Bethany Cox
