From AMZN:

Murder on the Orient Express — Onboard the Orient Express, an unsavory traveler (Toby Jones) requests Poirot’s protection; after the man is stabbed to death, Poirot searches for the killer on the now snowbound train. The star-studded cast includes Barbara Hershey, Hugh Bonneville, and Dame Eileen Atkins.

Third Girl — Poirot collaborates with crime novelist Ariadne Oliver (Zoë Wanamaker) to help a young heiress who thinks she may have committed a murder. When the woman’s childhood nanny is found dead, Poirot believes he has the victim–but he still has a long list of suspects. Peter Bowles and James Wilby guest star.

Appointment with Death–Hercule Poirot is visiting an archaeological dig in the Syrian Desert when the wife of Lord Boynton (Tim Curry) is murdered. Poirot carefully sorts through the woman’s many enemies to unearth the truth about her death. Also starring John Hannah and Elizabeth McGovern.

Edward Gorey’s theme is like Pavlov’s bell for fabulous television..

Sunday Mystery: Agatha Christie’s Murder is Easy – Miss Marple…

I keep expecting to get tired of the new Miss Marple every time the role is recast. They keep surprising me and keeping me entertained though and Agatha Christie is of course timeless… I am enjoying Julia McKenzie’s interpretation of the role, after growing up on Joan Hickson. I enjoyed Geraldine McEwan as well…For the purists I suspect Miss Marple will always be Margaret Rutherford….Does anyone else remember the 80s TV version of this novel with Bill Bixby and LesleyAnn Warren?
