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.

Very Enjoyable

This is the second volume of BBC dramatisation of the Lord Peter Wimsey stories. I prefer well read unabridged books, but these adaptations were excellent and it is always nice to hear them again.

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.

Fantastic Story & Voice Actors - Horrifying Music

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, Dorothy Sayers was a fantastic author and Peter Wimsey is her crowning jewel! The narration was well done, I have read the originals and the ways that the stories were abridged didn't affect the plot in a negative way and kept the moment of the mysteries.

What did you like best about this story?

I love Ian Carmicheal as Peter Wimsey, he captures the charisma and charm of the character.

What three words best describe full cast and Ian Carmichael ’s voice?

Engaging, Charming, British

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

These are the types of stories that typically 'move' a person; instead, they are lighthearted mysteries from a bygone era.

Any additional comments?

These are great and I highly recommend them but the intro music between the chapters is horrifyingly terrible. If your the type of person who likes to use the audible sleep timer and drift off while listening to your book, the intro music will jar you awake every time.

Ian Carmichael is perfect for the role

Although I have read or listened to all the unabridged books these radio plays give a great taste of the full versions.
