Publisher's Summary

Ian Carmichael is Lord Peter Wimsey in these consummate BBC radio dramatisations of Dorothy L Sayers' much-loved mysteries.
Elegant, erudite and sharp-witted, aristocratic detective Lord Peter Wimsey featured in numerous novels and short stories by 'Queen of Crime' Dorothy L Sayers. These full-cast adaptations - first broadcast on BBC radio between 1975 and 1981 - are loved by mystery fans all around the world.
In The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club, when General Fentiman is found dead at his club, Wimsey suspects foul play. Could he have been murdered for his money?
Strong Poison introduces Harriet Vane - a crime novelist on trial for murdering her lover. Wimsey knows Harriet is no femme fatale but an innocent victim embroiled in a diabolical plot....
Five Red Herrings sees Peter faced with six men, all of whom have a motive for killing argumentative Scottish painter Sandy Campbell. But who was the culprit?
In Have His Carcase, when Harriet Vane finds a body on the beach with his throat cut, Lord Peter must work out whether it was murder or suicide.
These classic dramas, produced by Simon Brett (author of the Charles Paris series), also feature Peter Jones, Joan Hickson, Miriam Margolyes and Warren Clarke.

Really enjoy Lord Peter Wimsey stories and love the fact that Ian Carmichael plays the title role. This was an accurate version of the original stories.

Classic drama.

I love these plays from the B.B.C and used to have them on audio tape. Ian Carmichael IS Lord Peter Wimsey and Peter Jones IS Bunter. I first read Dorothy Sayers detective books as a teenager, after an English teacher recommended them and have returned to them again and again.
