Great period drama

If you enjoy wallowing in nostalgia for the days when men were addressed by their surname and police officers drank copious whisky and soda while investigating crimes, this is for you. The plots have a recurring theme, but are sufficiently complex that it is very hard to guess the villains. The accents and special effects belong to another age when life was simpler and elocution was a virtue. But the suspense still works and the characters are convincingly voiced.

Paul Temple stories are always a pleasure

The incredible feeling of nostalgia created by the full cast dramatisations is wonderful! These stories give us a glimpse into a past time when life was much more simple, and folk were well spoken and polite. The stories are typically over the top, action, gripping tales of adventure, mystery and intrigue: and the personal touches if the intimate relationships just adds to the feeling. Wonderful listening.
