Andrew Pixley has just mentioned this volume, over on GAILLIFREY BASE,  so I thought that there\'d be people here who\'d like to hear of it. Looks good, doncha think?

That does look good!  Wish they\'d do that for Book of the Week! :)

Bought an interesting double CD the other day, one that\'s probably mentioned in the above book. A Paul Temple case, called Paul Temple Intervenes. This is from 1942 and the back of the CD says that it\'s one of the oldest full length surviving audio dramas left in the BBC vaults.

Its got a bloke named Carl Bernard as Paul Temple and Steve is played by a Bernadette Hodgson.

8 episodes, broadcast on the BBC Light Programme, from 30th October to 18th December 1942. There\'s a cast list inside the sleeve, interestingly, a character named Dolly Fraser is played by none other than Marjorie Westbury!!

A couple of other names you might recognise in the cast list, especially if you are a fan of early Archers, are Godfrey Baseley and Chris Gittins!

Have you started to listen to it yet? The sound is a bit ropey and the direction slow and staid but it\'s a good tale and I\'m glad to have it.  Wish we had some Sherlock going back this far....

I started it awhile back, but as you say, it was slow going. I was distracted and haven\'t revisited it yet.

I have some pretty old Sherlocks on my other laptop.
