Harriet Vane has never dared to return to her old Oxford college. Now, despite her scandalous life, she has been summoned back . . .
At first she thinks her worst fears have been fulfilled, as she encounters obscene graffiti, poison pen letters and a disgusting effigy when she arrives at sedate Shrewsbury College for the 'Gaudy' celebrations.
But soon, Harriet realises that she is not the only target of this murderous malice - and asks Lord Peter Wimsey to help.
'I admire her novels ... she has great fertility of invention, ingenuity and a wonderful eye for detail' P. D. James

A full cast dramatisation starring the wonderful Ian Carmichael as Lord Peter Wimsey in a role that he has made his own both on television and radio. Joanna David plays Wimsey's alta-ego and is a magnificent Harriet Vane. For any Sayers/Lord Peter Wimsey fan the end of the piece is truly moving. The release also provides bonus material from P D James and Jill Paton Walsh, and it is fascinating to hear the opinions of two of our leading crime writers discussing Dorothy L Sayers work with their unique insight.

Summary: This full-cast audio dramatization of Gaudy Night was specially recorded for BBC Radio. When Harriet Vane attends her Oxford reunion, known as the 'Gaudy, ' the prim academic setting is haunted by a rash of bizarre pranks: scrawled obsentities, burnt effigies and poison-pen letters--including one that says, "Ask your boyfriend with the title if he likes arsenic in his soup." Some of the notes threaten murder; all are perfectly ghastly; yet in spite of their scurrilous nature, all are perfectly worded. And Harriet finds herself ensnared in a nightmare of romance and terror, with only the tiniest shreds of clues to challenge her powers of detection--and those of her paramour, Lord Peter Wimsey.
