The dramas are presented here in what is generally considered to be chronological order in Lord Peter's life, rather than the order in which they were first broadcast or written.

Whose Body
A dead man is found in a bath, wearing nothing but a gold prince-nez. The corpse had filthy black toenails, flea bites, and the scent of carbolic soap lingering on his corpse. Then comes the disappearance of oil millionaire Sir Reuben Levy. With his beard shaved he would look very similar to the man found in the bath - but is Sir Reuben really dead?

Unnatural Death
A post-mortem concludes that there was "No sign of foul play", but Lord Peter Wimsey is not satisfied and begins his own investigation. There are no clues at all until the senseless murder of the victim's maid. Lord Peter is faced with the problem of catching a desperate murderer before he becomes one of the victims himself, and of discovering what goes on in a Mayfair flat.

The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club
General Fentiman is found dead at his London club. This is unremarkable until it turns out that a Lady Dormer died within a day of the General, and her large fortune would have passed on to him if he had been living at the time of her death, otherwise it would go to someone else. The exact time of the General's death is thus significant. Lord Peter investigates exactly how long the General had been dead and finds that not everything about the body is as it at first seemed.

Strong Poison
Novellist Harriet Vane is on trial for the murder of her fiance. Lord Peter in the public gallery is convinced she is innocent and falls completely in love with her. His trusty employee Miss Climpson happens to be on the jury and she too believes the prisoner innocent. In the jury room Miss Climpson sticks to her guns and ensures that a verdict cannot be reached. A new trial is ordered, which gives Lord Peter the time to try to prove Harriet's innocence.

The Five Red Herrings
A talented but irascible artist out on a painting trip is found dead in a stream. Whoever killed him had also apparently faked what the artist had been painting in the artist's own style, to make the death seem like an accident. Six local artists are talented enough to achieve this, and all had had public arguments with the dead man. One of the six is the criminal, and five are red herrings.

Have His Carcase
Detective novellist Harriet Vane discovers the body of a man on an isolated rock on the sea shore, his throat having been cut. She takes photographs and notes that the death must have been recent, as the man's blood is still liquid. There are no footprints in the sand other than hers and the victim's. Unfortunately the corpse is washed away by the rising tide before she can summon help. Her lover Lord Peter Wimsey investigates.

Murder Must Advertise
Lord Peter Wimsey goes undercover, working for the advertising agency Pym's Publicity as a junior copywriter. His predecessor had died in a fall down an iron spiral staircase, the death appears suspicious because the victim apparently made no attempt to save himself as he fell. In the victim's desk a letter to the firm's proprietor is discovered, telling him that something "undesirable" had been going on in the office.

The Nine Tailors
Stranded in a remote fenland village, Lord Peter Wimsey helps ring a long peal on the church bells after one of the ringers is struck down with influenza. The local squire's wife dies of the illness, and Wimsey hears how her family has been blighted by the theft of a valuable emerald necklace, which was never recovered. The next year, the squire dies too, and when his wife's grave is opened for his burial, the mutilated body of a man is found.

Busman's Honeymoon
Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane marry and go to spend their honeymoon at Talboys, an old farmhouse in Hertfordshire which he has bought her as a present.
