Episode 1
Originally aired Thursday, August 10, 2000, at 9pm

A series of mysterious thefts -- a bracelet, a cookbook, a stethoscope and now a knapsack containing hidden diamonds -- brings Poirot (David Suchet) to a student hostel in London. Celia Austin (Jessica Lloyd), a student, witnesses the theft of the knapsack, sees the thief cut it open, take diamonds out of the lining, and give them to the hostel owner, Mrs. Nicoletis (Rachel Bell). Shortly after alerting her fellow residents that she has urged the thief to come forward, Celia is found murdered. When Mrs. Nicoletis later confesses to Poirot that she knows who murdered Celia, she too is found murdered, leaving an unlikely tenant -- a mouse -- the only witness to both murders.

Episode 2
Originally aired Thursday, August 10, 2000, at 9pm

Poirot (David Suchet) is faced with two crimes to solve on Hickory Road: smuggling and murder. The Hickory Road student hostel residents soon begin to point fingers at each other -- and the body count continues to rise. It takes a hostel outsider, Sir Arthur Stanley (David Burke), to point Poirot to the real killer -- a young man with a history so dark, he would go to any lengths to conceal it.
