Episode 9

PD James's latest Dalgliesh mystery, dramatised by Neville Teller.

After a desperate chase to the Dorset coast, a recorded confession is discovered which seems to prove conclusively who the double murderer at Cheverell Manor is. But is it telling the whole truth? Dalgliesh sets off for Bournemouth, to meet a retired solicitor who might know more than he has previously told.

The Private Patient is the latest in the long-running Dalgliesh series, and the first to be dramatised on radio before television. The entire serial will be released on CD by BBC Audiobooks in June, and repeated on Radio 7 in August as part of a PD James season.

The dramatiser is Neville Teller, who also dramatised the previous Dalgliesh serial featuring Richard Derrington and Deborah McAndrew, A Taste For Death.
