The acting is very good stuff indeed as you sometimes get James Grout as a judge or Liz Fraser running a hotel.Peter Sallis crops up in one episode in Norman Clegg mode and Peter Bowels is great as the suave head of chambers.I love this series and getting it for less than one third of the recommended retail price from Amazon is a great idea.The clever plot-lines should certainly keep the viewer interested !

Rumpole of the Bailey is a departure from my usual digest of Sherlock Holmes, Poirot, Miss Marple, Colombo, Ironside, Monk, etc. My earliest memories of courtroom dramas date back to the high-power, American series, 'Perry Mason', another role made famous by actor Raymond Burr. Rumpole is quite unlike Perry Mason. Rumpole describes himself as a courtroom 'hack' whose primary interest involves accepting and defending apparently hopeless cases. They present a challenge that exercise his knowledge, experience ingenuity and intellect. He also likes the challenge of pitting his wits against establishment figures such as the police and other courtroom advocates with whom he has long been acquainted. He reserves most disdain for the judges who preside over his cases. Rumpole is not ambitious for ambition sake but his wife, 'she who must be obeyed', in continually pushing Rumpole to move on up the legal hierarchy and through his elevation improve her status in society.Read more ›
The only thing that has marred this product is: I thought I'd purchased "new" DVD's not "used" or "manufacturer rejects". A number of them were lightly scratched and one has a bubble in the media, so not all would play completely on my TV's built in DVD player and I had to use an external player to see them all. Nevertheless, the product is good entertainment value with the legal plots being brilliantly thought out as they caricature members of the legal profession in a kindly light, at least that is to those of us not members of the profession so not possessing as they would say, "fine minds".
