Seen it all? Tired of all reality television, talent shows, singing contests? Stumped to find another new mystery series?

Lord Peter Wimsey, a fictional well to do sleuth created by Dorothy L. Sayers has been adapted a number of times in a similar Poirot/Miss Marple style by BBC. Born into the upper classes, Wimsey is the classic well bred, highly educated gentleman who helps solves crimes more as a hobby than livelihood. The series takes place in the 1920-30s, following his deductions of crime and murder with the occasional appearance of his family members (very different from Sherlock and Poirot) and help of Chief Inspector Charles Parker.

Here are a number of links to various episodes...
