Summary

Ian Carmichael stars as Lord Peter Wimsey with Sarah Badel as Harriet Vane and co-starring Peter Jones, Rosemary Leach and Peter Vaughan in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation. Society’s eligible women are in mourning.
Lord Peter Wimsey has married at last, having finally succeeded in his ardent pursuit of the lovely mystery novelist Harriet Vane. The two depart for a tranquil honeymoon in a country farmhouse but find, instead of a well-prepared love nest, the place left in a shambles by the previous owner.
His sudden appearance, dead from a broken skull in the cellar, only prompts more questions. Why would anyone have wanted to kill old Mr Noakes? What dark secrets had he to hide? The honeymoon is over, as Lord Peter and Harriet Vane start their investigations.
Suspicion is rife and everyone seems to have something to hide, from the local constable to the housekeeper. Wimsey and his wife can think of plenty of theories, but it’s not until they discover a vital fact that the identity of the murderer becomes clear.

Busman's Honeymoon

Very good cast. Really good plot and easy to follow. The actors' voices were very easy on the ears. I would definitely buy another dramatisation.
