Ian Carmichael, RIP

I only just learned of the death of British actor Ian Carmichal on February 5th. (Obit in The Guardian here) He played both Bertie Wooster and Lord Peter Wimsey, as well as providing the voice of Rat in the animated version of The Wind in the Willows. Along with Brideshead Revisited, seeing the Lord Peter mysteries on public television in the 1980s cemented my anglophilia. Yes, Lord Peter was foppish, but he was still cool. Name another detective who composed sonnets.
