Synopsis

Lord Peter Wimsey, the best-bred detective in the United Kingdom, is back ferreting out crime among the privileged classes in this television adaptation of the novel by Dorothy L. Sayers. Lord Wimsey (Ian Carmichael) returns from a tour of Europe to learn that Capt. Dennis Cathcart (Anthony Ainley), who was engaged to marry Peter's sister Lady Mary Wimsey (Rachel Herbert), was murdered while fleeing the grounds of Riddlesdale, the Wimsey family's estate, in the middle of the night. Peter's brother, the Duke of Denver (David Langton), is considered the prime suspect in the crime by the police, but Lord Wimsey is convinced there's more to the case than what's on the surface, and the deeper he digs, the more certain he becomes that his brother is not the murderer ... and his sister has some secrets she's not sharing. Lord Peter Wimsey: Clouds Of Witness was produced by the BBC, and was first aired in the United States on the PBS anthology series Masterpiece Theatre. ~ Mark Deming
