Summary

Ian Carmichael stars as Lord Peter Wimsey in these definitive BBC radio dramatisations of Dorothy L Sayers' classic crime novels.
Aristocratic amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey was the master creation of Dorothy L Sayers, widely acknowledged as one of the four original 'Queens of Crime'. These full-cast adaptations - first broadcast on BBC radio in the 1970s, and presented here in their entirety - are admired by fans of the genre worldwide.
Whose Body? is the tale that first introduced Lord Peter to the world, and sees him investigating the case of a corpse in a Battersea bathtub and a vanished oil millionaire.
In Clouds of Witness, Lord Peter's eldest brother stands accused of murder. In collaboration with Inspector Parker, Wimsey slowly uncovers a web of lies and deceit within his own family....
Unnatural Death finds Peter probing the mysterious death of an elderly lady. He suspects foul play, and with the help of the indomitable Miss Climpson, sets about his investigations in deepest Hampshire....
Produced by Simon Brett (author of the Charles Paris series), these acclaimed dramas also feature Peter Jones, Patricia Routledge, Miriam Margolyes and Garard Green.

I got totally immersed!

Wonderful! I found myself totally immersed and even pictured the people, their homes and the overall lifestyle. Loved it! Can’t wait for volume 2 in 2018!

Irritating

I really wanted to like this but found that instead of 3 separate stories, each was separated into the original BBC episodes, with attendant irritating music and credits between each. The music is so loud that I had to keep turning the volume down and when I turn it up to listen to the speech sections every so often it becomes really quiet and you can't hear what's being said. The constant interruptions just irritated me and ruined the story.

Great to have the LPW stories on Audible.

I read all the books 25 years ago. It's wonderful to hear them as I cook. I forgot how I missed Ian Carmichael voice and the friendship of Charles, Bunter and Peter.

Lord Peter brought to life

So excited to have Ian Carmichael's Lord Peter Wimsey available in both dramatic & novel form. Please add Busman's Honeymoon in both forms to Audible. These are gems of the Golden Age detective stories .
