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.

I listen to a lot of audiobooks, and Paul Temple is my favourite of the mystery detectives. I love the way that the BBC put so much effort into making a drama of a story, not just a reading, that must be cheaper to make but all the sound effects and lots of actors make this a real feast. Great fun and very compelling.

This is nostalgia at its best. Set in the days when men were gentlemen and ladies were feminine.and not 'ladettes'.
The old car engines and the click of the old car doors bring back very happy memories. I look forward to my nightly 'episode'.
as much now as I did when I was a young child and sat riveted to the radio once a week! Please keep these plays going, they are wonderful. Would recommend these to anyone.

Took me back to the days of the radio when I rushed home to listen to the next instalment of BBC's Paul Temple mystery. Now I have the benefit of listening to it at my own pace.

In my first review of this Paul Temple item, now deleted, I complained that because the original BBC tapes had been transferred at the wrong speed "Coronation Scot" sounded as though likely to run off the rails and Marjorie Westbury like a chattering monkey. I've now replaced my 2001 copy with a 2003 issue and I can report that the speed problem has been corrected.

Two productions of this Francis Durbridge radio serial were made in the 1950s and this (earlier) one marks the debut of Peter Coke in the role of Paul Temple. It also has the husky voiced Grizelda Harvey and of course the inimitable, ever fresh, adorable Marjorie Westbury. It is mainly for the work of the latter that I treasure these radio episodes. If you want something that is life-affirming, radiant, charming and joyful, listen to what Marjorie Westbury does with the role of Paul Temple's wife Steve.

A very enjoyable Paul Temple story. Great for car journeys, they seem to last door to door on our trips.
