British actor Ian Carmichael who starred as Lord Peter Wimsey on the BBC mystery series died yesterday at his home in the Esk Valley on the North York Moors. He was 89.
He made his name in films for the Boulting Brothers including Private's Progress (1956), Brothers in Law (1957) and I'm All Right Jack (1959). During the 1960s and 1970s, he was successful in parts where he was cast as a loveable buffoon.
On television, his role as Bertie Wooster in BBC drama series The World of Wooster was particularly popular with audiences. This was followed by another well-watched role as Lord Peter Wimsey in several of the BBC drama series based on the mystery novels by Dorothy L Sayers.
Ian Carmichael was awarded an OBE in 2003.
