    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.

    "Hugely Enjoyable"

    A series of mysteries well crafted and dramatised by the BBC into an audio feast.

    Well worth the time and expense despite being very much of its time.

    Hugely enjoyable escapism

    "Paul Temple at his best"
    Where does Paul Temple: The Complete Radio Collection: Volume Three rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.

    "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!

    "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!
