can someone with the complete series set post pics of the packaging ? I have all 13 individual series but was wondering if they have some kind of custom digipak for the complete series.

Also is there a bonus disc exclusive to the complete series set which is supposed to have 28 discs ? My 13 individual sets only make up 27 discs.

Its a huge house, twice as big as the Holmes set. Inside are 4 large blu ray cases hold several discs. Its really well done. The discs are the same as the ones from the previous volumes. I like it a lot.. it still takes up less space than owning the 13 sets separately

Are you able to list number of disks by season ?
As a number of us have stated the total disks quoted on the Boxset cover is one more than the individual season disks, we would like to know what is the difference. Is it a bonus disk ?

On Acorn's website, they list these bonus features in the box set that don't seem to be on any of the individual sets:

•Being Poirot: David Suchet reflects on 25 years as Poirot while filming his final episodes, plus bonus interviews with Suchet and Agatha Christie's grandson, Mathew Prichard.

•Super Sleuths: Documentary about the series featuring the stars and crew

Perhaps the extra disc is for those bonus features?

Thanks for the details

Super Sleuths was a documentary series produced by ITV (the TV company who made Poirot), with each episode focusing on one of their fictional crime shows (included Midsomer Murders, Touch of Frost, Morse etc). Had talking head interviews with the cast discussing the shows.

Has been on TV a number of times in the UK
Here is the imdb listing
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0896417
a few corrections. Its in English ! and also the 60 minutes was run time on TV including adverts. The actual length of the programme would have been around 50 minutes.

Super Sleuths was released in the US on DVD back in 2009 as a bonus disc in Agatha Christie's Poirot: The Movie Collection, Set 4. I kept my DVD copy and added it to one of my Blu-ray sets.

Probably. And from the sound of it, the final set had a 18 min. excerpt from the Being Poirot special. So if it ran 50 minutes it's only around 30 new minutes of exclusive content. The Super Sleuths special is kind of exclusive too, but as has been pointed out, it was previously available on DVD.

I was at Costco today and they had the DVD version of the box set. I took a picture of the back so everyone can see what bonus content is included.

You are right. Extra DVD has 62 min feature of Being Poirot.

I seem to remember this is on the Orient Express disc when it was released on it's own. I'll check tonight when I get home. I have season 12 as the original separate releases.

Had a quick check and it's a thing about the Orient Express with David Suchet.

Thank you very much for posting the pics of the complete set! I have been wondering how it would look.

What kind of content is inside the booklet? Is it just an episode guide?

Is by any chance the US pack region free or locked region A?
I would be interested particularly in region B...
