Description

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.

Fantastic Story & Voice Actors - Horrifying Music

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, Dorothy Sayers was a fantastic author and Peter Wimsey is her crowning jewel! The narration was well done, I have read the originals and the ways that the stories were abridged didn't affect the plot in a negative way and kept the moment of the mysteries.

What did you like best about this story?

I love Ian Carmicheal as Peter Wimsey, he captures the charisma and charm of the character.

What three words best describe full cast and Ian Carmichael ’s voice?

Engaging, Charming, British

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

These are the types of stories that typically 'move' a person; instead, they are lighthearted mysteries from a bygone era.

Any additional comments?

These are great and I highly recommend them but the intro music between the chapters is horrifyingly terrible. If your the type of person who likes to use the audible sleep timer and drift off while listening to your book, the intro music will jar you awake every time.

Ian Carmichael is perfect for the role

Although I have read or listened to all the unabridged books these radio plays give a great taste of the full versions.

disappointed

I love Peter Whimsey so I am motivated to listen to these stories but I found the musical interludes so annoying. It is bad enough we don't get the whole books in several cases. These recordings should have been edited to give the narration flow for audio books. I won't be buying the other volumes in this series.

Wonderful but...

Well, you can’t beat Ian Carmichael. He simply IS Lord Peter. I am thrilled that these recordings are available. However as a fan of the books, I admit some of my favorite bits were removed from the script. I suppose they have to do that in order to fit the story into 8 episodes. Even so, I am sure I will listen to these stories many times. A side note: the real name of the actor who plays Miss Climpson is “Philpott” which seems like the perfect name for the character!

Riveting to the end

Wonderful performance by all the casts as Usual. Wth unique and engrossing plots. The 2nd tale was a little confusing but once I worked out all the characters the solution was ingenious

A great Sayers story

The stories are excellent and the casting impressive, but why could you not remove the ‘episode’ material? This made each part tedious as the actors were named and the characters described each time.

Theses plots are really remarkable in terms of construction and complexity. They wonderfully evoke their era. The actors are on top of their game and the results are brilliant!

Hörspiel ist nicht Hörbuch

Diese als Hörspiele umgeschriebenen Lord-Peter-Wimsey Krimis von Dorothy L. Sayers komprimieren die Handlung und Überlegungen der Protagonisten auf Dialoge bei denen Akzente und Manierismen so übersteigert werden, dass es für den Zuhörer fast schon weh tut.

Auch der Eindruck, dass Lord Peter ein ziemlich aufdringlicher, seine Langeweile mit nicht ganz legalen Ermittlungen bekämpfender Aristokrat ist, kommt in diesen Hörspielen sehr stark rüber.

Ich empfehle eher die Hörbuch-Fassungen.

Wirklich gut!

Ich bin ein absoluter Dorothy L. Sayers fan, mir haben die BBC Hörspiele sehr gut gefallen. (Nur die Intromusik und Abspannmusik war schlicht zu häufig zu hören, zudem merkt man hier den Zahn der Zeit wirklich deutlich.)
