A Dorothy L Sayers Mystery

A Dorothy L Sayers Mystery



This series marked the return of the character Lord Peter Wimsey (played by Edward Petherbridge) to the UK airwaves and this time he was joined by mystery novelist Harriet Vane (played by Harriet Walter) to help him solve the murders.
Sadly, however, the show did not survive due to the bad casting and it never lived up to the previous show Lord Peter Wimsey from the early 1970's.
