Loved this series!, 24 April 2006
Author: cdrivanova from San Francisco Bay Area

I've been in an Agatha Christie phase for a bit and remembered having seen this series on TV. It was great because it wasn't the traditional Marple/Poirot/Tommy & Tuppence story, but some of Dame Agatha's lesser known characters. I *really really* wish that this set would come out on DVD because I'd snap it up in an instant.

For those wondering which stories were included in this series, here's the list:

1 The Case of the Middle-Aged Wife

2 In a Glass Darkly

3 The Girl in the Train

4 The Fourth Man

5 The Case Of The Discontented Soldier

6 Magnolia Blossom

7 The Mystery of the Blue Jar

8 The Red Signal

9 Jane in Search of a Job

10 The Manhood Of Edward Robinson

If this ever comes on TV again, enjoy! It's worth watching.
