Trivia

Doctor Who (1963) producer Peter Bryant was transferred onto it by the BBC to replace Alan Bromly and help lift what was perceived to be an ailing series following the first run. He was soon joined by Derrick Sherwin, who had been his story editor on Doctor Who and had briefly succeeded him to produce Patrick Troughton's departure story and Jon Pertwee's debut story. Sherwin insisted that he would only do it if he was made a full co-producer on Paul Temple. Doctor Who's uncredited script assistant Trevor Ray also moved across to help address story issues.

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.
