Publisher's Summary

A brand new, fully dramatised remake of the lost archive drama Paul Temple and Steve, starring Crawford Logan and Gerda Stevenson

From 1938 to 1968, crime novelist and detective Paul Temple and his Fleet Street journalist wife Steve solved case after case in one of BBC Radio’s most popular serials. Now the dapper duo return refreshed and reinvigorated to the airwaves, to investigate the activities of a shadowy and ruthless criminal mastermind in post-war London.

Enlisted by Sir Graham Forbes of Scotland Yard to help track down the mysterious Dr Belasco, Paul and Steve find clues in cigarette lighters and bodies in shrubberies, dance the night away in louche Latin American night clubs, meet sinister manservants and suspicious foreigners, and have their lives threatened at every turn. Just as well Steve remembered to bring along her revolver as well as her ration book.

This new production for BBC Radio 4 uses the original scripts, vintage sound effects and much of the incidental music from the missing 1947 production. As far as possible, it is a technical and stylistic replica of how that production might have sounded had its recording survived.

    Story
    "Great remake of a classic Temple"
    If you could sum up Paul Temple and Steve in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, humorous, you won't want to turn it off.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The language is deliteful and descriptive. Keeps you guessing until the end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    "Listen to your clock Mr Temple" .......


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have listened to many of these, had some cassettes years ago. Even today they are still entertaining and light hearted. The dramatisations are well done and engaging.


    Any additional comments?

    Great listen, recommend it for the nostalgia.

    Story
    "Paul Temple & Steve do it again"
    Would you listen to Paul Temple and Steve again? Why?

    I have listened to all that are available over and over again. The style, simplicity and naivety brings the 1950s to life


    What other book might you compare Paul Temple and Steve to, and why?

    Margary Allingham and Campion. Atmosphere and context - who needs sex and gratuitous violence?


    What does Crawford Logan and Gerda Stevenson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The accents and nuances that bring out the flavour of the story


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! If only


    Any additional comments?

    Who is going to write the new Frances Durbridge?

    "Good but a little disjointed"

    I'm a big Paul Temple fan and this audio book doesn't disappoint, although more complex than usual and a little disjointed in places.
