Episode Summary

Clouds of Witness, Part 1
Wimsey and Bunter try to save Lord Peter's elder brother, the Duke of Denver, from the hangman's silk noose when he is accused of murdering Dennis Cathcart, who was engaged to his sister, Lady Mary. Cathcart was shot in the Duke's garden during the night, and the only suspect was found standing by the body - but he declines to discuss the matter.

Denver stands by his right to be tried by his peers amid the Gothic splendour of the House of Lords. At the trial's climax, Wimsey finds himself flying through a storm with new evidence to prove his brother's innocence.moreless

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Freddy Arbuthnot: Are we expecting Peter?
        Lady Wimsey: One doesn't expect Peter, Freddy. Either he's all over you when least wanted, or nowhere to be found when he is.

      • Lord Peter: I suppose they do hang peers? They can't behead them on Tower Hill or anything.
        Inspector Parker: Well, they certainly hanged Earl Ferrers in 1760.
        Lord Peter: Did they though? As the old pagan said of the gospels, "After all, it was a long time ago. Let's hope it wasn't true."

    • NOTES (1)

      • Music: Rachel Arbuthnot plays Noel Coward's song 'A Room With a View' on the piano. Though the show doesn't mention a date, the song was composed a year after the original novel was published.
