Good entertainment value "if"

If you are a mystery junkie like me, and are willing to overlook some highly dubious (and sometimes repetitive) plot lines for the joy of a glimpse of British life that probably never existed. Pure escapism and quite violent, both of the main characters scarcely flinch as bodies drop all around them. Still you get 8 seasons of classic BBC radio, quite a bargain for the cost of one book!

Lots of fun

I love British radio dramas and Paul Temple doesn’t disappoint. A British twist on Nick and Nora Charles.

Any additional comments?

Love these politically incorrect dramas. I find them comforting and ignore the sexist and class bias lol. They are a product of their time and whilst I feel for the butlers. I listen over and over my memory so poor I rarely remember who the killer is.

Excellent nostalgia

I love these old radio detectives, but was a bit disappointed when I bought volume 3, to find that the Gilbert affair on vol2 is also on this volume. So if you bought volume 2 you will only get four different episodes instead of five. Otherwise excellent!

Paul Temple Radio shows

great set of stories easy to listen to with lots of plots and red herrings. I have all the Paul Temple radio plays each story is broken down to 8 episodes with the final reviel stage in a very similar to Hercule Poirot manner all suspects are invited to a get together. I for one enjoy Temple.

A classic collection of the best Paul Temple dramas. Superb performances by Peter Coke, Marjorie Westbury and the supporting cast. Hours of complete enjoyment; worth every penny.

Another great collection!

I loved this collection too - more of the same formula but just as much fun and equally great acting and scene setting.

Paul Temple Review

I have been listening to Paul Temple for over 10+ years and have loved the story, how it is written and the story can take different points of view, dramatic parts, hidden clues that we don’t think or even consider. I would recommend this to anyone who like old fashion story from the 20th Century.
I also find the audio book very relaxing and listen to it every day when I go to sleep.
