Did You Know?


Then-Doctor Who (1963) producer Peter Bryant was transferred onto the show to replace Alan Bromly and help lift what was perceived to be an ailing series, following the first run. He brought along his friend and script editor, Derrick Sherwin who would join him in the producer's seat (as he had on the SF series). The Time Lord's uncredited script assistant Trevor Ray also moved across to help address story issues. 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.
