Description

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.

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 .

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.

It was music that made me remove a star

I love books of almost every genre (excluding romance, non-fiction, and westerns) and English murder mysteries have a special place in my heart HOWEVER I had the worse time with that music!! There was no need. It didn’t add to anything and worse it was recorded at a higher decibel than the narration. I wear earphones (very very good ones) and was gardening while listening to this and at times the narrators voices became almost whispers then suddenly that infernal music would blast my eardrums. Had the stories themselves been unentertaining then I would have given up. I also do find that the mix of so many voices does tend to confuse one as we are expected to KNOW the characters by voice alone at times. And some of the narrators rushed through their lines that I missed a bit here and there. All in all, if you can find these books read by ONE person you will definitely find it more enjoyable. However based on the story itself I have to give credit where credit is earned and this book earned my credit

Great dialogue adaptations - irritating music

Voices get really quiet and hard to hear and then the music come up extremely loud. There is no middle ground with the audio. You go from, what wa that? I have to back up, to having horns blast out your eardrums. I would prefer less intro and exit music and more dialogue. Aside from the horns and volume problems, the stories are enjoyable. I am getting the next in this series, as there are currently no unabridged Audible versions of the individual stories available.

Loved It!

Loved every one of these stories and will purchase all the volumes. Ian Carmichael is the marvelous thread that strings them all together though all of the narrators are excellent.

Fun to hear.

I enjoyed the stories but at times the dialect was hard to understand. Good show!

Annoying

I purchased the book because I have very high regard for the author Dorothy Sayers. And on balance the detective stories were not too bad. It is a clone of Sherlock Holmes but instead of Dr. Watson there is Inspector Parker and butler Hunter to help Lord Wimsey. What made the book annoying, was the recording production, perhaps the original production from the BBC radio series, which included very loud blaring muted trumpets that separated each of the episodes. The recording volume of those separating interludes was extremely loud and forced me to turn down the volume or even remove my headphones every time we came to one. This is perhaps a minor matter, but it was very annoying and happened between scenes within episodes and for when longer periods between episodes. in addition, for the North American audience the combination of very strong British accents, which was a delight, and low recording volume for the voices, especially compared to the music, made it sometimes difficult to hear and understand the narration. Finally, some of the stories captured one's interest, but others were not so exciting, and bogged down with so much of the traditional British way of interacting, whereby the courtesies of greetings and interactions slowed the progress of the plot. I had thought I would buy another of these series from the BBC, with Dorothy Sayers, but I probably will not.

A Must Listen for All Lord Peter Wimsey Fans

This volume 1 contains 3 separate Lord Peter stories. I believe they are all abridged to some extent but done in an excellent manner such that the story flows easily. The characters and voices are most enjoyable. I got a kick out of Patricia Rutledge , of the BBC s "Keeping Up Appearances" and "Hetty Wainthrop Investigetes", who voices Lord Peter's mother.

Nothing better!

BBC adaptations are a great listen, especially the dramatic mystery series originally written by the greats!

Für BBC-Verhältnisse schlecht produziert

Erstaunlich, dass hier Lautstärken bei Sprache und Zwischenmusik so schlecht abgemischt sind. Ich regle andauernd rauf und runter, um Dialoge zu verstehen oder die Musik zu dämpfen.
