Summary

Timothy West stars as Rumpole in these four fantastic radio dramas.

Rumpole and the Teenage Werewolf

Rumpole heads to the Home Counties to defend Ben, a teenager accused of sending emails deemed to be sexually harassing, and of an actual physical attack on a girl.

Rumpole and the Right to Privacy

Rumpole leaves the Old Bailey to defend a civil case: an editor of a local newspaper who is accused of breaching a successful businessman's right to privacy.

Truth Makes All Things Plain

If one man can be counted on to fight injustice and insist on a fair trial for everyone, whatever their circumstances, it is Horace Rumpole. So when the beautiful Tiffany Khan learns that her husband has been arrested on suspicion of terrorism, she calls for his help right away.

The Past Catches Up with Us All

As he struggles to win justice for his client, Rumpole finds that his marriage to She Who Must Be Obeyed is, rather like his waistcoat, straining at the seams.

Timothy West stars as Rumpole and Prunella Scales as Hilda, with Matt Smith as Ben, Nigel Anthony as Claude Erskine-Brown and Michael Cochrane as ‘Soapy Sam’ Ballard.
