Acceptable, by Timothy!

I really enjoy Paul Temple. Although the plots are silly and quite repetitive, there is a marvellous period atmosphere to the Peter Coke/Marjorie Westbury adventures. 'Intervenes' has different actors and is interesting as a curiosity, but the sound quality is a bit variable and the production values are generally a little crude. Do not start with it - choose the Geneva Mystery, the Spencer Affair or the Conrad Case. When you have exhausted the rest, this one will do.
