Lord Peter Wimsey: The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club

Return to Now Playing

This wonderful four-part mini-series was taped by the BBC and then presented in the US in 1973 by Masterpiece Theatre. In the story, written by Dorothy L Sayers in 1928, Lord Peter Wimsey is an amateur detective who finds himself in the midst of a crime scene at his own club and sets out to find out what happened, which some of the authorities appreciate and others do not.

This presentation is a playlist of all four 45-minute episodes in the series. You may watch them in a single setting, or use the playlist control to watch them one at a time.
