Pure escapism.......

These stories are pure escapism, and reveal so much about the era they were written, old fashioned and frequently sexist (the wife, Stevie, so often is the one who picks up the clues, or works out the motives not because she is smart you understand, but because she uses her "intuition"). Book after book, they find people, half dead, groaning in the bushes, bombs in car, and poison in drinks. The working classes are "the salt of the earth", women have "pasts" and dry martini's are to die for. And yet, and yet, theres something about the stories that is really relaxing and fun, or as Paul Temple might say "by Timothy they are good"............. I downloaded the first of these dramatisations when I was going through a particularly stressful time, i didnt want gritty reality, i wanted to be completely transported to another time and place.....................I am now on my 5th Paul Temple story, and love the escapism they bring.................
