ASBOs may be the pride and joy of New Labour, but they don't cut much ice with Horace Rumpole - he takes the old-fashioned view that if anyone is going to be threatened with a restriction of their liberty then some form of legal proceeding ought to be gone through first. When one of the Timson children is given an ASBO for playing football in the street, Rumpole soon realizes something fishy is going on.

Rumpole is my most favorite non-conformist. He never takes himself or his colleagues too seriously. Rumpole's sense of humor is high-browed yet universal so anytime I get a chance to hear one of his cases, I take it.
I have been a longtime Rumpole fan. Loved the idea of "she who must be obeyed" becoming a barrister.
All the other Rumpoles are just as entertaining. I recommend them all
I do love Hilda. She is a powerful force.
Nothing extreme. Rumpole is always good for a chuckle.
nobody, just badly narrated.
Yes,,,,,,, only bought this because the timothy west version was so goood,,,, thought this must be the same,,,, not.
