I especially remember that, in it's first season, it also had great theme music, with a fine title sequence by Maurice Binder. And I agree that both "Ellery Queen" and "Nero Wolfe" were really enjoyable. As a Wolfe fan, I was impressed that Timothy Hutton (who is, reportedly, also a Wolfe fan) went out of his way to make the shows as close as possible to the original stories.
As for American whodunits, you might try "Banacek" from the old "NBC Mystery Movie". That followed the classic formula pretty closely, including the final gathering of suspects and presentation of the solution.
