Killer Serials #16 – Paul Temple Intervenes, Part One (6/27/20)

1:30:18 – Dave in Kentucky imports and introduces a killer serial from across the pond and across the years — the BBC’s 1942 production of Paul Temple Intervenes, plus: Francis Durbridge, Martyn Webster, Peter Coke, Carl Bernard, Bernadette Hodgson, “Steve” Temple, Scotland Yard, Marquis pronunciation, dukes and earls, by Timothy, the apostle Paul, Cockneys, Marjorie Westbury, versatility of radio actors, pale ale, escargot scene in Steve Martin’s The Jerk, gin & tonic, lorries, motorcars and their bonnets, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, torches or flashlights, private detectives or private inquiry agents, Egyptology, Guy de Maupassant, Dorothy L. Sayers, Agatha Christie, E. Phillips Oppenheim, Edgar Wallace, Edgar Allan Poe, round and around, disinterested or uninterested, serial cliffhangers, and more … but almost nothing political, or even current.
