Clouds Of Witness
Ian Carmichael stars as Lord Peter Wimsey in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the Dorothy L. Sayers detective thriller. With Patricia Routledge, Maria Aitkin and Miriam Margolyes.
In a shocking scandal, the like of which has not been seen in the English aristocracy since the 18th century, Lord Peter Wimsey's elder brother, the Duke of Denver, stands accused of murder.
Wimsey is determined to prove his brother's innocence, yet finds him strangely uncooperative.
In collaboration with Inspector Parker, Wimsey slowly uncovers a web of lies and deceit within his own family, and finds himself faced with the unhappy alternative of sending either his brother or his sister to the gallows.
Until he himself becomes a target.
Patricia Routledge plays the Dowager Duchess in this classic dramatisation, alongside Maria Aitken as Lady Mary and Miriam Margolyes as Mrs Hardraw.
