The brilliant Bailey hack recalls some of his most extraordinary cases, including several deliciously funny courtroom spars with his arch-foe, the Mad Bull (aka Judge Roger Bullingham).
It's legal: download more of Rumpole's cases.

This is a great listen thanks to Patrick Tull, who is barely distinguishable from the original, definitive Rumpole (Leo McKern). I recommend seeking out his versions of John Mortimer's classic stories wherever possible. For some reason only two of the Rumpole books that Mr Tull has read are available on Audible UK; another four can be downloaded from Audible's US site, but only if you have access to an American credit card. It would be great if Audible could sort out anomalies like this. The author, publisher and narrator are the same for all six books, so why are some of the titles not permitted to cross the Atlantic?
"Excellent finish to a classic series."
Best ending imaginable
Hard to say without spoiling it all for others. Sorry.
Silly question. OK,,um Rumpole?
Jeez. Rumpole, First Blood?
Yes. This is my real recommendation/review. I've been a fan of Rumpole for about forty years and I had never heard/read this before. I'm so very glad that I finally did. A wonderful last chapter that would please anybody; particularly fans. Perfect.
Loved it. Narrator made for a very enjoyable read. Reminded me of the TV actor.
