A Mystery and a Love story
19 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Written and set in the 1920s, Lord Peter Whimsey and Harriet Vane go on adventures solving mysteries while falling in love. Lord Peter (Edward Petherbridge) is an aristocrat with links to the British Government, he is an accomplished musician and dancer. Harriet Vane (Harriet Walter) is one of the first women to graduate from Oxford (like the author) and a writer of mysteries (like the author). So many people see Harriet and a representation of Dorothy L. Sayers while Peter is her fantasy partner. Peters manservant Bunter (Richard Morant) is always on hand to assist.

The 52 minute episodes are sometimes shown in groups. First is Strong Poison where Harriet is a suspect. Episode 1,2,3 Then Have His Carcase where they find a body in Dorset Episode 4,5,6,7 Lastly Gaudy Night, Harriet goes back to her Oxford College to find who is writing threatening letters to the staff.
