    "Formulaic, but a great dramatisation"

    These Paul Temple books are basically 'MacMillan & Wife' meets Agatha Christie: Famous/well-connected 40-something husband, plucky fashionable younger wife, multiple deaths, implausible 'coincidences' - and solving the crime without using a shred of actual forensic evidence.

    (For example, I've listened to several of these in the past week or two, and not ONCE has anyone talked about dusting for fingerprints.)

    However, once you get over these hurdles - which, after all, are common to all mystery/thrillers, especially of this time period - this is a great series. Well-acted, well-produced...sure, if you listen to a whole bunch in a row like I have, you start to see how formulaic they are, but that doesn't make them less enjoyable.

    Recommended for anyone who likes mysteries or radio plays.

    "Predictable, Entertaining Fun"

    This is a BBC radio show from the 1960's. This series ran for over 30 years on the BBC.

    If you have listened to and enjoyed other Paul Temple dramas, you will probably enjoy this one. It doesn't stray from the usual format. This is a vintage radio show. It is not even close to being "cutting edge."

    I am old enough to remember when dramas were broadcast on the radio. There are times when I want a change from current TV, with it's edgy, often violent dramas. Those are the times when I listen to, and enjoy, Paul Temple.

    "Wonderful!"

    Tongue in cheek? Yes.... but so easy to listen to. BBC Radio have some wonderful old plays which have been resurected and this is one of them..
