Mind you, I love this series of mysteries and have watched them many times. This is my favorite Lord Peter--truly believable and charming--but Harriet Vane is annoying. She is whiny and harpy and I just wanted to slap her most of the time. Even in the end, I didn't believe she truly fell in love with him. It could have been the casting or it could have been the script, likely it was both. Still, with all that, I highly recommend this series. The mysteries are terrific, the scenery awesome (not shot in a studio most of it). You won't regret buying it.

Comments about PBS Mystery!: Dorothy L. Sayers Mysteries DVD 3PK:

I have waited to see this series appear in DVD since I first saw this on PBS in Florida in the early 1990's. It is a brilliant production with excellent casting. Dorothy Sayers would have been pleased with it, I think. THANK YOU!

Delightful

Comments about PBS Mystery!: Dorothy L. Sayers Mysteries DVD 3PK:

The acting is wonderful by all, but I must applaud separately Edward Petherbridge and Harriet Walters' performances as simply superb. Wish there were more episodes, but there was only one other story written that I know of. I love this series.

Comments about PBS Mystery!: Dorothy L. Sayers Mysteries DVD 3PK:

We are delighted with this set of DVDs. We now have all of the Lord Peter Wimsey's. The character of Harriet is a fine addition to this serious. As much as we like this series, we like the other series even more. Perhaps that is just because we saw those first, but we somewhat prefer the other Wimsey and Bunter actors.
