Stars Timothy West, Prunella Scales and cast.
Four new stories about the wine-imbibing barrister and his wife, She Who Must Be Obeyed.
This release comprises four 45-minute BBC Radio 4 plays adapted by John Mortimer from four stories in his latest published collection, 'Rumpole And The Primrose Path'.
Rumpole is a wine-imbibing friend of the South London criminal classes, and the scourge of all QCs. Acting as narrator, he tells a series of stories involving legal chicanery, criminal derring-do and startling coincidence, spiced with a modicum of domestic strife at home.
In these episodes Rumpole is played by Timothy West, whilst the part of She Who Must Be Obeyed is taken by his real-life wife, Prunella Scales.
