Lord Peter Wimsey

Show Summary

Welcome to the Lord Peter Wimsey guide at TV.com. Lord Peter Wimsey, younger brother of the Duke of Denver, is a scholar with time on his hands and a penchant for solving murder mysteries, aided by Bunter, his manservant and partner in crime-detection. This popular series adapted five of the Lord Peter Wimsey novels by Dorothy L. Sayers, these ones first published between 1926 and 1934. Ian Carmichael reprised the role of Wimsey in a series of BBC Radio productions, but these fall outside the scope of this guide. A further series of adaptations of the Lord Peter Wimsey novels was produced by the BBC in 1987 and broadcast as A Dorothy L. Sayers Mystery.

  • The adventures of an old-fashioned gentleman sleuth in that troublesome period between the wars.

    9.0
    Ian Carmichael was so obviously ideal for the role of Lord Peter Wimsey that it's astonishing to learn from his autobiography that it took him years to persuade the BBC to make this delightful (and very popular) series. In fact, it took him too long, for the one problem with his very stylish performance is that he's a tiny bit too old for the role - he was past 50 by the time the show started in 1972. Still, he's a delight to watch in the part and the mostly very faithful adaptations of Dorothy L. Sayers's novels manage to leave out the regrettable attitudes occasionally demonstrated by that rather strange lady.moreless
