Boulevard Seminaire

The mystery glove trail leads the suave detective and his wife to a rendezvous in Paris.

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, John Scott as Bill McCall, Simon Lack as Philip Droste, Grizelda Hervey as Vanessa Droste, John Bryning as Charles Marett, Jon Farrell as Luke, Betty Baskcomb as the Telephone operator, Rolf Lefebvre as Louis Franz, David March as the Waiter and Beatrice Ormonde as the Receptionist/Lady.

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.
