Summary : Lord Peter Wimsey: BBC Radio Drama Collection, Volume 3: Four BBC Radio 4 Full-cast Dramatisations (Original Recording)

Ian Carmichael stars as Lord Peter Wimsey in these classic BBC radio dramatisations of Dorothy L Sayers' Golden Age crime novels.

Gentleman detective Lord Peter Wimsey starred in a number of novels and short stories by Dorothy L Sayers. These full-cast adaptations - first broadcast on BBC radio between 1979 and 2010 - are cherished by crime aficionados worldwide.

Murder Must Advertise sees Lord Peter going undercover in an advertising agency to investigate the death of a copywriter.

The Nine Tailors finds the aristocratic detective stranded in a remote village, where he is drawn into a case of stolen jewels and an unidentified body.

Gaudy Night takes place at Harriet Vane’s old Oxford college, where a series of spiteful pranks and poison-pen letters have torn apart the academic community. With Lord Peter’s help, can she uncover the perpetrator?

In Busman’s Honeymoon, newlyweds Harriet and Peter have their marital bliss disturbed by a body in the basement - and are once again embroiled in a murder investigation.

These evocative dramas also feature Allan Cuthbertson, Peter Jones, Joanna David and Sarah Badel. Also included on this release is a bonus interview with top crime novelists P. D. James and Jill Paton Walsh about Gaudy Night, conducted by Henny Fordham.
