Full Cast Dramatisations.
Two classic BBC Radio full-cast dramatisations featuring Belgian crime sleuth Hercule Poirot, from the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie.
'Hercule Poirot's Christmas': Tyrannical millionaire Simeon Lee has been estranged from his family for years. But now on Christmas Eve, the old man calls them all together once more. Before anyone can find out what his motive was, a deafening crash is heard overhead. Rushing upstairs, they discover a shocking sight: Simeon Lee is lying in a pool of blood, his throat cut. But the door has been locked from the inside and there is no trace of the murderer. With so many possible suspects, Hercule Poirot delves into what seems an impossible case to solve. But as Poirot knows only too well, things aren't always as they seem...
'Murder in Mesopotamia': Amy Leatheran has never felt the lure of the mysterious East, but when she travels to an ancient site deep in the Iraqi desert to nurse the wife of a celebrated archaeologist; events prove stranger than she could ever have imagined. Her patient's bizarre visions and nervous terror seem unfounded, but as the oppressive tension in the air thickens, events come to a terrible climax - in murder.
