The Agatha Christie Hour: Complete Collection The Agatha Christie Hour: Complete Collection collects ten tales of intrigue and romance from renowned mystery writer Agatha Christie, produced by England’s Thames Television back in 1982-83 and broadcast in the U.S. on PBS’s Mystery!

They include John Nettles (Midsomer Murders), Amanda Redman (New Tricks), Christopher Cazenove (The Duchess of Duke Street), Ralph Bates (Poldark), Cherie Lunghi (Secret Diary of a Call Girl), Maurice Denham (All Passion Spent), James Grout (Inspector Morse), and Stephanie Cole (Doc Martin).

The Case of the Middle-Aged Wife
-In a Glass Darkly
-The Girl in the Train
-The Fourth Man
-The Case of the Discontented Soldier
-Magnolia Blossom
-The Mystery of the Blue Jar
