The Marlow Incident

With Queenie dead - will her clue help the debonair detective and wife Steve find the missing baby?

Francis Durbridge's thriller stars Peter Coke as Paul Temple and Marjorie Westbury as Steve in another intriguing case for BBC radio's smoothest investigator and his glamorous wife.

With Richard Williams as Sir Graham Forbes, Frederick Treves as Inspector Eden, James Beattie as Charlie, Peter Wilde as Terry Palmer, June Tobin as Mary Desmond, David Spenser as Sergeant Digby, John Stott as Bill McCall, Richard Hurndall as Roger Shelly, Jeffrey Segal as George, James Thomason as the Waiter, Hugh Manning as the Sergeant and Hilda Schroder as the Telephone Girl.

From 1938 to 1969 the fictional crime novelist and detective Paul Temple, together with his Fleet Street journalist Steve, solved case after case in one of BBC radio's most popular series. They inhabited a sophisticated world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women were chic and the men wore cravats - a world where Sir Graham Forbes, of Scotland Yard, usually needed Paul's help with his latest tricky case.
