Full Cast Dramatisation
Ian Carmichael is the personification of Dorothy L. Sayers' charming investigator, Lord Peter Wimsey, in this thrilling new BBC Radio full-cast dramatisation.
This full-cast audio dramatisation of Gaudy Night has been specially recorded for BBC Radio Collection. Ian Carmichael is reprising his famous role as Lord Peter Wimsey, which he has played on both television and radio.
When Harriet Vane attends her Oxford reunion, known as the 'Gaudy,' the prim academic setting is haunted by a rash of bizarre pranks: scrawled obscenities, burnt effigies and poison-pen letters - including one that says, 'Ask your boyfriend with the title if he likes arsenic in his soup.' Some of the notes threaten murder; all are perfectly ghastly; yet in spite of their scurrilous nature, all are perfectly worded. And Harriet finds herself ensnared in a nightmare of romance and terror, with only the tiniest shreds of clues to challenge her powers of detection - and those of her paramour, Lord Peter Wimsey.
