Publisher's Summary

Timothy West takes on the role of Rumpole in these four delightful dramas featuring the wily barrister.

Rumpole and the Primrose Path

Rumpole exposes criminal practices at the nursing home where he was sent to recuperate after a heart attack, leaving him in dire need of claret, cheroots and good company.

Rumpole and the Scales of Justice

When Rumpole defends a senior policeman in court, his love for Shakespeare’s Othello, and his old acquaintances in the south London criminal fraternity prove very useful.

Rumpole and the Vanishing Juror

Rumpole’s admiration for the integrity of the Old Bailey jury is legendary – but he is mystified when his most promising juror in a murder trial suddenly disappears....

Rumpole Redeemed

Invited to dinner at his local prison, Rumpole, solves the conundrum of whether an ex-con can be reformed – while also seeking redemption himself.

Timothy West stars as Rumpole, with Prunella Scales as Hilda, Michael Cochrane as Sam Ballard, Nigel Anthony as Claude Erskine-Brown, and Sophie Thompson as Luci Gribble.

Relaxing and enjoyable

I picked this up exclusively to listen to Timothy West and Prunella Scales and I wasn’t disappointed. As always they are a delight to listen to and the rest of the cast put in a good turn. As a bonus I really enjoyed the short and snappy cases and I will now be seeking out more Rumpole. A pleasant and restful experience.

Rumpole for the BBC

This is an excellent adaptation by the joint production efforts of the talented duo Marilyn Imrie & Catherine Bailey. The husband & wife team Timothy West & Prunella Scales are superbly cast as the Rumpole & “She who must be obeyed”. The acting in each episode is flawless. A wonderful Rumpole series for BBC radio to equal in statue to the legendary TV series of the 1980s.

Great

Entertaining and delightfully performed. It’s easterly gale force nine outside and freezing. What better company could one have than another Rumpole tale and a roaring log fire.
