I read the book itself a while ago, but this is the BBC radioplay. It gives me the terrible urge to say things like "top hole" and "jolly good" and so on -- mimicking Ian Carmichael's tone, of course. I'm late to this party, I know, but he makes an excellent Peter Wimsey: in fact, all the casting is very good. It brings across the tone of the book very well, too. Very fun to listen to -- it made me laugh a fair few times.

(It did also make me realise that if Peter Carmichael of Jo Walton's Small Change trilogy isn't a deliberate reference, it ought to be.)

The plot itself, well, it was a bit easy for me to follow, having read the book before. It's an interesting enough mystery -- and there was enough of a gap between me reading the book and hearing the radioplay that meant I was puzzling over the exact way Peter would figure things out, which kept me even more entertained.
