The unflappable, crafty, and eloquent barrister, Rumpole, winds his eccentric way through hilarious courtroom dramas. Horace Rumpole, renowned for his penetrating cross-examination skills and familiarity with the criminal class and their parlance, turns on a tuppence when the situation calls for it, triumphing over steely-eyed, glacially cold judges and cunning, condescending prosecutors. These stories will make you laugh, as Rumpole's trenchant wit and self-deprecating mien make for great comedy. The ongoing subtext with his wife, "She Who Must Be Obeyed," supplies further comedic value. And of course, Bill Wallis's amazing voice-acting talents are not to be missed! D.J.B.
