This was the first series the BBC made as an international co-production. UK prints credit Taurus Films as co-producers, whilst the German version refer to ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen). This was very much due to creator Francis Durbridge's popularity in Germany (although the author himself did not write for the show) and allowed the series to venture overseas and widen its casting base. The videotape masters were apparently copied onto colour film to air in Germany. See more »
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.
