Twelve classic Christie short stories are given a modern spin in these BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisations.

Agatha Christie is the acknowledged 'Queen of Crime', and these twelve short stories showcase her skilful plotting and talent for producing compelling mysteries. First broadcast in the early 2000s, the stories were adapted and brought up-to-date for a contemporary audience.

Among the star cast are Tom Hollander, Emilia Fox, Patricia Routledge, Julia McKenzie, Neil Dudgeon, Richard Griffiths, Rebecca Front and Andrew Sachs.

Unconventional detective Parker Pyne features in two of the stories, all twelve of which are infused with Agatha Christie's trademark tension and suspense. These tantalising tales of revenge, jealousy, love and death will thrill her many fans.

The stories are:

Philomel Cottage
Swan Song
Magnolia Blossom
Witness for the Prosecution
The Gates of Baghdad
The Hound of Death
In a Glass Darkly
The Dressmaker's Doll
The Case of the Perfect Carer
The £199 Adventure
The Gypsy
The Last Séance

I love Agatha Christie books, but I wasn’t impressed with these radio stories. I do enjoy radio, but I think I was too familiar with the original stories and these left out much (as film recreations do…). But I feel I was disappointed overall.
