    "Another wonderful piece of writing"

    A great piece of writing to listen to - if that isn't too much of a juxtaposition! Her usual high standard of story telling told by Peter Carmichael & Co., wonderfully!
    I will now continue with the next one....

    "First rate radio play"
    Would you listen to Unnatural Death (Dramatised) again? Why?

    Truly fantastic cast and dramatisation. Yes you know whodunnit from the start but the twists of the plot and the seeming absence of motive and opportunity keep you engaged.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unnatural Death (Dramatised)?

    That might give the game away!


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favourite?

    Lord Peter Wimsey, of course!

    Story
    "Classic 1920s crime"

    A vintage 1920s crime story, pretty faithfully adapted as a BBC Radio series with Ian Carmichael and Peter Jones as Wimsey and Bunter. A satisfying mystery with outstanding actors and sound effects,
    I can't tell you how many times I've listened to this! I save my new Audiobooks for when I'm wide awake, but this has become a favourite for listening to at night when I can't sleep ...I'm like a child with this as my go to bedtime story.

    "episodes separated"
    Any additional comments?

    This particular adaptation is separated into episodes as originally produced on live radio. I much prefer not to have these separations but to have the narration in a continual flow as it is in the other Dorothy Sayers' I've listened to. That's why I've not given 5 stars but the content is typically good Dorothy Sayers.

    "Excellent!"

    I bought this on a whim, mostly because I love Ian Carmichael's performances in the Wodehouse dramatizations and audiobooks and when I heard the 'sample' audio for this I couldn't resist.

    It was excellent! The story was good (and not as implausible, plot-wise, as many radio mystery series of the period), the adaptation great, and Ian Carmichael as Lord Peter Wimsey is perfect.

    I particularly liked the humour - you don't get many laugh-out-loud moments in murder mysteries of this era, but this was like Jeeves and Wooster meets Paul Temple, and I don't think you can do better than that.

    Highly recommended (and I bought the other 2 dramatizations within 48 hours of listening to this one - and loved them too).
