Publisher's 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.

    "Dramatisation"

    Really enjoyed these dramatisations, and it is really complementary to the book. Recording sounds dated now, but that is in keeping with the material!

    "Fun"

    Carmichael makes a good Peter and delivers the language well, doing the best that can be done off screen or off page to convey the emotional changes and darkness that his character must embrace. Fun to listen to as a cast affair.

    "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 .
