Folks! This third part to our series on English mystery writer and her creation, Lord Peter Wimsey, was hidden away in an obscure corner of my flashdrive until this day. Now you can hear of the last several books, our favorites, and the conclusion of Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane's thrilling love story.

Brabazon, James. Dorothy L. Sayers: A Biography, 1981.

Coomes, David. Dorothy L. Sayers: A Careless Rage for Life, 1992.

Dale, Alzina Stone. The Story of Dorothy L. Sayers, 1978.

Hitchman, Janet. Such a Strange Lady, 1975.

Kenney, Catherine McGehee. The Remarkable Case of Dorothy L. Sayers, 1990. (A scholarly look at the themes of social criticism in Sayers' work.)

Reynolds, Barbara. Dorothy L. Sayers: Her Life and Soul, 1993. (The best one in my opinion. It is writen in an open, modern style and contain many more pictures than than the others.)


The best series - A Dorothy L Sayers Mystery. BBC, 1987. This cover 3 out 4 of the Wimsey/Vane books -

Strong Poison (in which they meet and Peter saves Harriet from the gallows),

Have His Carcase (in which Harriet finds a body, which subsequently disappears, and partners with Peter in investigating and solving the murder),

Gaudy Night (in which Harriet goes back Oxford for a reunion and runs into a mystery about a vicious vandal; while the plots thickens, so does their romance).

Best Wimsey is Edward Petherbridge and best Vane is Harriet Walter, both of whom are in this series.

The other series was made by the BBC in 1970. It starred Ian Carmichel as Wimsey. Carmichel looks nothing like Wimsey and, to my mind, does not act like Wimsey either. This series includes:

The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club

The Nine Tailors

Murder Must Advertise

Five Red Herrings

Clouds of Witness

There were also a couple films made, both of which Sayers absolutely hated. They are:

The Silent Passenger, 1935, British, starring John Loden and Peter Haddon.

Busman's Honeymoon (US: The Haunted Honeymoon), starring Robert Montgomery and Constance Cummings, 1940.
