Oh, me too! He sort of drags out his words too, and the effect is quite suspenseful.

It really is remarkable. He is the perfect reader for it, and now that I\'ve heard him, I couldn\'t imagine anyone else doing it. Does he do Rogue Justice as well?

You know, I think I\'d heard that about ACD on the special they did a while back, and I thought it was in an old interview with his son. But my memory is touch and go, so it could have been anywhere or.....nowhere.

I\'m loving this program! Thanks Ivor for recommending this. I probably wouldn\'t have listened to this one otherwise. This is why the Calendar is such a great idea.

Flowers and chocolates!

Generally speaking, I don\'t get offended that easily. Taste is taste. What suits one, doesn\'t suit another. Remember, I\'m one of the idiots that likes GK (:P) (see R7 board for further GK clarification).

It would be a boring world if we all liked the same thing. :)

I\'ve just listened to the last episode, \'The Ferrers Documents\'. Surely, I wasn\'t the only one to spot the murderer, early on. I won\'t be a spoiler, in case there is anybody reading that hasn\'t heard it yet. Notice that, no mention of gender, so they\'re all possibles.

Do you think that ACD deliberately left the little clues that Bert Coules is picking up on, in order to do the same thing that Bert has done, should ideas dry up in his old age?


Yeah, I got it pretty early too, but I didn\'t mind. I really love these productions.

It sure seems ACD left himself room to expand. Although, I think I heard somewhere he didn\'t mind others taking his characters on new adventures. Sounds like he was a class act that way.

I haven\'t listened to these yet (though, some-evil-force, put them on my computer for future listening ;)). I find it hard to believe that Mr. Jackson felt he could get Biblical instruction through a radio production. You have to know that when you\'re watching or listening to a production, it ain\'t like the book. I would have thought that, as a critic, he would have understood this, and taken it for what it was intended. I also, find it hard to believe that he thought reading two chapters of the Bible would give him understanding of these stories. It would be like taking two chapters out of any book and being surprised at not understanding what the thing was about.

I agree, Tru, that productions of these kind sometimes incline the listener/viewer to learn more about the subject. I think this is true not only for Biblical, but other historical programs, as well.

I\'m looking forward to listening to these even more now. Thanks!

They\'ll do some Rumpole as tribute in the next month or so, wouldn\'t you think? I hope so, I really liked those.

I\'d been aware of the Rumpole series for a long time, but never read one of the books or saw/heard any of the productions, until the ones on R7 last year (my husband listened to some of this with me, and for some reason found \"She who must be obeyed\" funny....hmmm....men! ;)

I\'m glad you brought up Inns of Court because I\'d never even heard this term. It was very interesting reading. I had no idea these even existed. Thanks! :)

Yes, I was listening to this after I logged out, and realized I\'d seen the television production (read the book long ago). I think I liked the radio version better! Thanks Ivor!

Radio Matters / Sir John Mortimer (Rumpole)

I was sorry to hear about his passing. I was wondering, is this the same gentlemen who did the most recently aired Rumpole episodes? I quite enjoyed them.

I only caught the last two or three episodes of the previous King Street Junior that was on a few months ago. I wish I knew why I liked this one so much. It just seems really easy to listen to.

I was really happy to see this back on. I wish I could catch the ones I\'d missed. Oh well, I\'m sure if I stick around long enough, it\'ll be back around.
