The Nine Tailors : BBC Radio 4 Full-cast Dramatisation CD-Audio
Narrated by Full Cast, Ian Carmichael, John Westbrook, Peter Jones, Philip Latham
Part of the BBC Radio Collection series
The elegant, intelligent amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey is one of detective literature's most popular creations, and Ian Carmichael is the personification of Dorothy L.
Sayers' charming investigator in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.
Lord Peter Wimsey, man about town and amateur sleuth, and his man Bunter, are drawn into a series of intriguing incidents after being stranded in the remote village of Fenchurch St.
Paul. What is the identity of the grotesquely disfigured corpse found in the churchyard?
Who murdered him and why? Perhaps the Fenchurch bells hold their own answers to the mystery...Starring Ian Carmichael as Lord Peter Wimsey, this Radio 4 dramatisation was first broadcast as a weekly serial in 1980.

Review by shanaqui
One of my favourites, in book form, and pretty well done for the radioplay, too. I always want to see more of the recurring characters, though at least Bunter's reasonably prominent in this one -- still, I felt the lack of the Parkers and Harriet. Peter's struggles with finding the real culprit when the victim is so unpleasant are pretty poignant, and his realisation of the actual situation is well dramatised.<br/><br/>There was less about the technical side of bell-ringing in the audio adaptation, which was probably wise considering the medium, but I'm looking forward to rereading The Nine Tailors in full and seeing what I make of the bells this time round.
