Based on a novel by author and BBC darling Dorothy L. Sayers, Strong Poison chronicles the adventures of Lord Peter Whimsey (Edward Petherbridge) and Harriet Vane (Harriet Walter), a novelist and detective who does an excellent job of getting under Whimsey's skin. The blurred line between their personal and work relationship rivals that of The X-Files' infamously tense crimefighting duo, and the partners find themselves trying (though not necessarily consciously) to solve more than the mysterious crime unraveling before them.
