Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As a fan of audio books and detective stories I was delighted to see that the BBC have revived this venerable radio series featuring the suave amateur detective and crime writer Paul Temple.
In this adaptation, Paul Temple writes a play for one of his favourite actresses but is taken aback when she disappears soon after expressing her pleasure at what he has written. Even more strangely, she then reappears at the same place where Temple himself is on holiday...
Anthony Head brings this abridged reading to humourous life, as Temple foils the machinations of various strangely accented villains with the help of his curiously named wife, Steve. You need to concentrate fully on what's happening as it's easy to miss a bit of the convoluted plot, but Head is the perfect choice to bring the story to life, and Temple creator Francis Durbridge's flair for the dramatic and ability to create interesting characters shine through from start to finish.
