I strongly recommend this DVD to all those amored of a cracking good yarn. The plot is well written and the players deliver their parts exquisitely. I had listened to BBC cassettes of this mystery for over 12 years before finally getting to see the TV version and I was thrilled with Ian Carmichael's portayal of Lord Peter Wimsey. There are some familiar faces in the cast, including Christopher Timothy, Peter Bowles, Bridget Armstrong, and Paul Darrow. The dialogue is so smart and effective throughout the show. The plot revolves primarily around who (if anyone) killed Victor Dean, a copywriter at Pym's Advertising and secondarily about the drug ring Chief Inspector Parker is pursuing. To see how they are related, you will have to watch the mystery unfold. If you really appreciate good English mysteries, you'll watch this show more than once, I have!
