Trivia

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 »

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.
