After a two-year break, the indomitable barrister Horace Rumpole returns in six sprightly new capers, including one told by his long-suffering wife Hilda, who proves to be every bit as canny as her crafty curmudgeon of a husband. As always, Mortimer writes with a Wodehousian elan but, unlike Wodehouse, he incorporates a spirited if indirect wrestling with the social and political issues of the day. In the title piece, an old judge with Alzheimer's is a posthumous figure in a case involving a doctor who is charged with unduly hastening the judge's end…

Genre: Drama, TV Series

Written by Rumpole of the Bailey creator John Mortimer, this six-part television dramatisation is based on the sixteen years that William Shakespeare is known to have spent in London, remains one of the most impressive biographical portraits to date. With each episode built around the creation of a single play, a skilful interweaving of known events and contemporary interpretation show how key experiences may have inspired some of Shakespeare’s greatest works - the death of his young son, and his love for the famous ‘dark lady’ of the sonnets, for example. The bustling taverns and theatres of Elizabethan London are lavishly recreated, while Shakespeare himself is played with tremendous sensitivity and breadth by Tim Curry.
