Critic reviews

"Bill Wallis is perfect as the dry-witted and clever Rumpole... The brilliance of this audio is in the voices Wallis uses to portray each individual, displaying a wide range of dialects and accents so seamless and so suited to each that the listener will forget that only one person is doing the narration. Rumpole's asides, internal meanderings, and quotations of poetry and other commentary are conveyed with the humor they deserve in this thoroughly enjoyable collection." (AudioFile)

Rumpole's Last Case

The Rumpole series is absolutely brilliant and, having listened to some other versions, I would recommend that you always go for the ones read by Bill Wallis who IS Rumpole as per the television series. John Mortimer is one of the wittiest writers (or was, sadly) and Rumpole's antics will have you laughing out loud!

Rumpole, My Rumpole

Was driving from Manchester to Aberdeen and wanted some easy listening, saw Rumpole and thought i liked the TV series so why not, funniest thing I’ve heard for years even sat in the car for a further 20 minutes on arrival at the hotel to finish a story.

Not My Glass of Sherry

I really did enjoy author Mortimer's wry and dry sense of humour, and the stories were enjoyable. However, I guess it's just not my cup of tea.

Bill Wallis's narration is top notch.
