    "Excellent!"

    I bought this on a whim, mostly because I love Ian Carmichael's performances in the Wodehouse dramatizations and audiobooks and when I heard the 'sample' audio for this I couldn't resist.

    It was excellent! The story was good (and not as implausible, plot-wise, as many radio mystery series of the period), the adaptation great, and Ian Carmichael as Lord Peter Wimsey is perfect.

    I particularly liked the humour - you don't get many laugh-out-loud moments in murder mysteries of this era, but this was like Jeeves and Wooster meets Paul Temple, and I don't think you can do better than that.

    Highly recommended (and I bought the other 2 dramatizations within 48 hours of listening to this one - and loved them too).

    "Another wonderful piece of writing"

    A great piece of writing to listen to - if that isn't too much of a juxtaposition! Her usual high standard of story telling told by Peter Carmichael & Co., wonderfully!
    I will now continue with the next one....

    "First rate radio play"
    Would you listen to Unnatural Death (Dramatised) again? Why?

    Truly fantastic cast and dramatisation. Yes you know whodunnit from the start but the twists of the plot and the seeming absence of motive and opportunity keep you engaged.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unnatural Death (Dramatised)?

    That might give the game away!


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favourite?

    Lord Peter Wimsey, of course!
