'Rumpole and the Explosive Evidence': Rumpole defends a well-known safe blower and exposes the underhand behaviour of one Dirty Dickerson, a senior police officer who is quite prepared to tamper with evidence.

'Rumpole and the Gentle Art of Blackmail': In 1964 Rumpole returns to Oxford, where he studied law, to defend a young gardener who is accused of blackmailing the Master of St Joseph’s College. Their friendship had provoked rumours of homosexuality - still illegal in those days - and the Master says he has been threatened with a public accusation.

'Rumpole and the Expert Witness': Rumpole is asked to defend a GP, Dr Ned Dacre, who is accused of murdering his wife, Sally. The plot thickens when the local pathologist turns out to have history with Dr Ned....

Another series of Mysteries acted out amazingly!!!

These have become my new favorite past time. I have always loved radio shows, it's so refreshing to be able to listen to them again!

Crying baby Soooooo annoying

The performance was marred by the over use of a crying baby. The hacking Rumpole and laughing lady were also over used.

A Great Serving of Whit and Satire

The cast fleshes out Rumpole’s various tales in an enticing manner. I’ve purchased all three of the Rumpole compilations and listen to them while working, cooking and even sleeping. And having a small Bluetooth speaker makes it that much better!

Disappointed

I did not know how to rate by the stars. I am profoundly tone deaf. On the phone. I know "Hi Mon" is my daughter as I only have 1 child, and "Hi dear, is my husband. And 4 readers/narrators. So, with all the music, which sounds like small creatures being, this was not for me.eviscerated
