The Gilbert case sees Paul Temple and his glamorous wife Steve in cracking form. First broadcast in 1954, The Gilbert Case relates Paul's investigation into the affairs surrounding the conviction and sentencing to death of Howard Gilbert for the murder of his girlfriend Brenda Stirling. Brenda's father comes to Paul just as he and Steve are about to go on hoilday (again!) to say that he thinks Howard is innocent... Scotland yard are at a dead end, can Paul and Steve prove Howard's innocence before it is too late? The plot moves swiftly and excitingly along for almost 4 hours of thrills and spills in the sophisticated world of the the West End, and the seedy world of crime. This story also contains the key to Steve's famous phrase for checking if the man on the telephone really IS Paul.... "Where's Charlie fishing?" the answer should be "In the Thames", but will it be....? As evocative of another time and way of life as the other Paul Temple BBC releases, this is one his fans must not miss.
