Trivia

Only 16 of the 52 editions are currently known to survive. Of these, the final five episodes exist only exist as monochrome film prints returned from New Zealand. It is believed that BetaFilm and/or ZDF in Germany may hold copies of every edition from the second season onwards, though whether these exist is presently unclear; certainly it seems the soundtracks would be dubbed if so. To further muddy the waters, it appears that the German prints may feature alternative footage which UK viewers never saw, and vice versa. Such differences even extend to the credits. See more »

Classic British Television
4 April 2013 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Paul Temple is a wonderful example of classic British television at its best. Today, it is an overlooked and rare bird. I watched all the series on RTV2 in Hong Kong, and was particularly pleased when Paul Temple and his wife Steve traded in their Hillman Imp for a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow drophead couple by Mulliner Park Ward. So much more fitting for the character! Francis Matthews was perfectly cast in the lead role, and Ros Drinkwater was a natural for his wife, Steve. The plots, although not always surprising, were engaging, and the guest roles were filled by many top UK actors and actresses of the day. Ron Grainer's superlative theme song is absolutely perfect, and seemingly impossible to find in any recordings.
