Publisher's 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.

I'm sorry it's over!

What made the experience of listening to Lord Peter Wimsey: BBC Radio Drama Collection Volume 2 the most enjoyable?

Ian Carmichael is perfect as Lord Peter Wimsey. His performance is nuanced, his accent is perfect - he's funny and lovely to listen to. All of the other cast members were very talented, as well.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lord Peter Wimsey, of course. But Harriet Vane was also perfection!

Which character – as performed by full cast and Ian Carmichael – was your favorite?

Great stories from a different time.

I read all of the LPW stories in my youth and although some parts were cut out for the audio drama they were wonderful to hear. Ian Carmichael was a favorite as a child and to hear his voice again brings back LPW nostalgia. I hope volume 3 and 4 exist!

A great listen

I really enjoyed these programmes when they were o n the radio and they were so much more enjoyable when you could listen to several episodes at once. The only issue was the interuption of the theme music.
