Ian Carmichael stars as Dorothy L. Sayers blue-blooded detective in this made-for-TV thriller. Armistice Day in 1922 finds a number of old soldiers relaxing at the exclusive Bellona Club, but it turns out one of them is a bit too relaxed -- General Fentiman (Ralph Truman) is dead. As it happens, Fentiman's sister, Lady Dorland, passed away the same day, and since the distribution of her sizable estate hinges upon which sibling died first, Lord Wimsey (Charmichael) is brought in to unravel the truth. It soon becomes obvious that Fentiman was murdered, and the deeper Wimsey digs into the case, the stickier the issue becomes as he discovers an ugly web of treachery involving Fentiman's heirs. Originally produced as a four-part mini-series for the BBC (and aired in the United States on the PBS anthology series Masterpiece Theater, Lord Peter Wimsey: The Unpleasantness At The Bellona Club also stars Derek Newark as Bunter, John Welsh as Mr. Murbles, and Vivien Heilbron, John Quentin, and Terence Alexander as the Fentiman heirs. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
