Synopsis by Mark Deming
Ian Carmichael stars as upper-crust detective Lord Peter Wimsey in this made-for-TV adaptation of the novel by Dorothy L. Sayers. When Victor Dean, an employee of Pym's Publicity, one of London's best respected advertising agencies, dies after a nasty fall down a stairwell, Lord Wimsey is called in to investigate the matter. It doesn't take long for Wimsey to conclude that Dean's death was no accident, and his research uncovers evidence that several people on the Pym's payroll are involved in a sinister underground world of drugs and crime. As Wimsey unravels the dirty little secrets of Pym's, several other employees turn up dead, adding to the urgency of his investigation.
