I love Rumpole

If you could sum up The Trials of Rumpole in three words, what would they be?

I'm completely biased.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It kept me settled way back in my easy chair. Like listening to an old friend.

What about Bill Wallis’s performance did you like?

I had no sense he was seeking my approval. In this respect, how like the great barrister himself. A lot of mumbling under his breath as to the Old Bull.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love it when Rumpole allows himself to feel real affection for,

Any additional comments?

I have heard a number of narrators do Rumpole and somehow I've been able to get very comfortable with all of them.
