Based on the novel by Dorothy L. Sayers, this made-for-TV mystery features two of her best-known characters: Harriet Vane and Lord Peter Wimsey. Novelist Vane (Harriet Walter) is vacationing after being cleared on charges of murder when she stumbles across the body of a man who has been killed on the beach. The only footprints in the sand besides her own are those of the victim, and Vane is at a loss to explain what has happened. Finding herself a homicide suspect again, Vane calls upon her friend Lord Wimsey (Edward Petherbridge) to help solve the crime, and the two soon find they've stumbled upon a plot involving murder, suicide, and political radicals. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
The third (and last) of the Edward Petherbridge-Harriet Walter Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries, Gaudy Night focuses its spotlight on Walter's character, Harriet Vane. Lord Peter continues to be infatuated with her and proposes frequently, but Harriet, though fond of him, cannot accept. While he is away on some foreign service work, Harriet goes to a reunion (aka a "gaudy") at Shrewsbury College in Oxford and finds herself involved in a mystery. Someone has been sending anonymous letters to students and faculty members and playing dangerous pranks. Harriet suggests that this is a matter for the police, but as the headmistress wants to avoid any scandal or publicity, Harriet agrees to help find the culprit; but when violence erupts, she calls on Lord Peter to help her get to the bottom of things. Between the two of them, they resolve the matter, as well as the question of their own future plans. ~ Craig Butler, Rovi
Based on a novel by author and BBC darling Dorothy L. Sayers, Strong Poison chronicles the adventures of Lord Peter Whimsey (Edward Petherbridge) and Harriet Vane (Harriet Walter), a novelist and detective who does an excellent job of getting under Whimsey's skin. The blurred line between their personal and work relationship rivals that of The X-Files' infamously tense crimefighting duo, and the partners find themselves trying (though not necessarily consciously) to solve more than the mysterious crime unraveling before them. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
