| Possibly the best case for Lord Peter.
The Nine Tailors is an engaging four part mystery. In my opinion it's the best of the Lord Peter Wimsey novels, and perhaps the best of the dramatisations. It's an intriguing mystery, which spans two decades, Wimsey returns twenty years later to Fenchurch St Paul, where a set of valuable emeralds are stolen.

It's a gorgeous production, it looks fabulous, terrific scenes inside and out of the Church, and also the scenes of the water rising up. Carmichael as always is excellent as Wimsey, he's very well supported by the great cast, Glyn Houston marvellous as always as Bunter, I thought Donald Eccles was particularly good as The Vicar.

It's a wonderfully engaging mystery, there are stacks of red herrings, twists and turns, you think you know what's happening, but expect the unexpected. 9/10
