The Agatha Christie Hour
These dramas based on the short stories of Agatha Christie are adapted for television by some of the leading talents of British TV writing. All share Agatha Christie’s classic “whodunnit” flair for plot set within the timeless era of the roaring Twenties and Thirties.
Included in this series of one-hour stories are the ghostly "Mystery of the Blue Jar,” the tale of horror and passion, "In a Glass Darkly," a madcap night of glamour and delight in "The Manhood of Edward Robinson," and in "The Case of the Discontented Soldier," a retired Army major finally discovers happiness, thanks to Parker Pyne.
THE AGATHA CHRISTIE HOUR bears all the hallmarks of quality production values, witty scripts, inspired casting, and deft storytelling. In reproducing the exact atmosphere and feel of Christie’s original tales, the series remains a delightful, thrilling excursion into an England gone by.
