Hello all radio mystery lovers,

I was wondering if someone could point me to any of the above-mentioned Peter Wimsey stories on the BBC.

I was very happy to find "Five Red Herrings" in the 005_BBC-Radio-Shows directory but haven't found any others... yet.

As you can tell by the handle I'm a Wimsey fan but only recently discovered the radio versions exist!! Totally exciting.

In case anyone else is looking, I just found several Wimseys right here in the Mystery Clubhouse:

005_BBC-And-British-Shows -->
British Radio Shows Collection -->
More Shows -->
Clouds of Witness parts 1-8

and

005_BBC-And-British-Shows -->
British Goldmine Collection -->
Clouds of Witness (again), Have His Carcase, Nine Tailors, Strong Poison, The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club, and Whose Body.

Huzza!

Hello Human, Murder Must Advertise in BBC and British shows is also a Lord Peter Wimsey show. The only one that we seem to be missing in MysteryShows is Busman's Honeymoon, after LP marries Harriet Vane.

Cheers, Tim B

My apologies to you Harriet, I should address you properly, what?
We also seem to be missing Gaudy Night...

Cheerio and all that, Tim B

From memory, I always found Gaudy Night the most elusive.

Three Dorothy L. Sayers mysteries involving amateur sleuth extraordinaire Lord Peter Wimsey and the lovely Harriet Vane are realized to perfection in these 1987 BBC adaptations. In Strong Poison, Harriet (Harriet Walter) is on trial for murder. Lord Peter (Edward Petherbridge) becomes enchanted by her and decides she cannot possibly be guilty. What follows are the twin stories of Lord Peter's search to find the real killer and his romantic pursuit of Harriet.

I took the plunge and ordered the CD's for Lord Peter Wimsey in Busman's Honeymoon and Unnatural Death from A*****, a large internet purveyor. Found a reasonable price too.

They are worth the effort. Same cast, same excellent audio.
