Trivia

There were several differences of opinion between the BBC and the Munich-based backers. The Germans were very keen on Ros Drinkwater as Steve (the BBC were reportedly less sure of her) and wanted to toughen up the stories, increase the action sequences and make the Temples appear more affluent. This 'interference' may have led to the show's demise. See more »

Best Television Show Ever!
31 December 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Paul Temple, in my opinion, is the most under-rated television show in history. I used to watch the show when it was first screened (in Australia) in the early 70's and I became a big fan of the show. I wish I could see this again if they ever release this fantastic show on DVD. I would be the first to buy it. Francis Matthews was perfect casting for the part of the lead character Paul Temple. Also, Ros Drinkwater was perfect as his assistant "Steve". The stories were always original and kept you interested and guessing until the very end. The acting from both the lead and supporting cast members was always top-notch. Let's just hope that the BBC releases these fantastic episodes very soon so that everyone might enjoy them as I have.
