Engaging mysteries produced with modest sets, costumes, and other props, but competently acted and suitably complex, based as they are on the stories by Dorothy L. Sayers. Ian Carmichael's (d. 2010) Wimsey is comical, gentlemanly, and at times chivalrous, deftly tackling the intricacies of two murders that are as peculiar as they are confounding. These programmes remind one of what British television used to be like at its best: naturally paced and thoughtfully edited, even if, at times, slightly stagy.
