Richard Castle may have a charisma all his own, but he’s far from the only crime novelist-turned-sleuth. As a matter of fact, his popularity wouldn’t hold a candle to that of British private detective Paul Temple. The invention of Francis Durbridge, Temple first appeared in a BBC radio serial in 1938 and entertained fans worldwide for over 30 years. Often called in to help Scotland Yard with tricky cases, Paul and his wife Steve may remind you of pairings such as Dashiell Hammett’s Nick and Nora Charles or Agatha Christie’s Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. In new recordings of these quick mysteries, actor Anthony Head brings understated drama and droll wit to the stories of the Curzon Case, the Kelby Affair, the Tyler Mystery, and the Harkdale Robbery.
