Description

Julian Rhind-Tutt takes on the role of Rumpole in this fifth collection of cracking court cases. Rumpole on TrialSuffering from toothache, Rumpole is in no mood for his client's boring testimony or Justice Gwent-Evans' impatience.

But when he argues with the judge, he is warned in no uncertain terms about his future conduct.

Soon, Rumpole finds himself on trial and facing the end of his career... Rumpole and HildaRumpole's long-suffering wife Hilda ('She Who Must Be Obeyed') narrates a fascinating tale of murder and romance that Horace would prefer to remain untold, and gives Rumpole - and us - a glimpse of her true, passionate nature. Rumpole and Memories of Christmas PastRumpole spends an unexpectedly rewarding Christmas in Norfolk; discusses the spirit of Christmas with the Mad Monk; and learns that the season of goodwill is shared by barristers and criminals alike. Rumpole and the New Year's ResolutionsRumpole has an interesting encounter with Santa Claus at a Chambers Christmas party, finds himself on babysitting duty after a blackmail trial, and attends a traditional British panto - where he recognises a familiar face. Starring Julian Rhind-Tutt as Rumpole, Jasmine Hyde as Hilda and Nigel Anthony as Claude Erskine-Brown. A Catherine Bailey production for BBC Radio 4.
