Far from unpleasant
29 November 2000 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Has the same loving attention to period as Clouds of Witness - but I don't think people said women were 'liberated' in the 20s. Some of my favorite lines have gone in favour of imported jokes that aren't as good as Sayers'. Anna Cropper is a natural for Ann Dorland, but it's a mistake to see her calling a mystery man. The actress playing Margery Phelps

  • here portrayed
as Lord Peter's part-time girlfriend, and why not?- is impossibly arch. And why were George's lines about masculine women given to his wife to report (George says...)? Why was the scene where Shiela (the wife) embarrassingly reveals their debts (and her own devoted but rather irritating personality) cut? The actor playing George, though, is almost too good as the shell-shocked ex-officer. Just a few carps from a devoted Sayers fan. xx
