The elegant, intelligent amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey is one of detective literature's most popular creations, and Ian Carmichael is the personification of Dorothy L. Sayers' charming investigator in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.
Lord Peter Wimsey, man about town and amateur sleuth, and his man Bunter, are drawn into a series of intriguing incidents after being stranded in the remote village of Fenchurch St. Paul.
What is the identity of the grotesquely disfigured corpse found in the churchyard? Who murdered him and why? Perhaps the Fenchurch bells hold their own answers to the mystery....
Starring Ian Carmichael as Lord Peter Wimsey, this Radio 4 dramatisation was first broadcast as a weekly serial in 1980.

A wonderful radio performance of a classic mystery

A terrific adaptation for the radio, a brilliant cast pull you into a most perplexing mystery. A perfect companion to a leisurely drive or a little gardening.
The sound effects add to the sense of actually being there watching the whole story unfold.
Highly recommended to all all fans of classic crime

Well done BBC. This can not be bettered. Fantastic full cast who bring to life this excellent Dorothy L Sayers play. The cast and the soundtrack so realistic. This is what we want when we purchase a full cast production audiobook. I have the full set of these BBC Sayers and all of them are of this level of production. Please, let’s have more like this. Thank you! Just a shame we no longer have the wonderful character actor the charming Mr Ian Carmichael who for me is Lord Peter Wimsey.
