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.
