Publisher's Summary

Benedict Cumberbatch plays the young Horace Rumpole in this second stellar collection of court cases, also starring Timothy West as the older Rumpole.
'Rumpole and the Man of God': It is 1959, and Rumpole must defend a clergyman accused of shoplifting who, although he clearly did not commit the crime, is curiously reluctant to be cross-examined under oath. Meanwhile, Hilda (she who must be obeyed) has big news....
'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.

'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!

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

Just perfect

All the performances were superlative and the adaptations neatly done. Completely enjoyable. Never thought to hear better Rumpole than Leo Mckern but between them, Timothy West and Benedict Cumberbatch have done it!
