Great Comfort Listening

Paul Temple was the longest running radio detective, and probably the last of the gentlemen detectives, and these series will take you back to another era. Many of the actors had worked together for years, and they have a great rapport, this,gives a sense of reality to the performances.

The stories are good, although if you listen to many series, you will notice a bit of a formula, but they are very enjoyable nonetheless!

Not really for those people who like to look for clues, and guess whodunnit, , your never really sure until the denouement, which is usually at a cocktail party, where all the principals are brought together!
Great fun!
