Bill Fletcher's Story

The debonair sleuth and wife Steve face danger when a bomb is sent to their home.

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 Simon Lack as Superintendent Raine, James Thomason as Sir Graham Forbes, Jon Rollason as Tony Wyman, Tommy Duggan as Mike Langdon, Julian Somers as George Kelburn, Joan Matheson as Mrs Fletcher, William Bedle as Bill Fletcher, Mary Wimbush as Dr Benkaray, Hugh Manning as Larry Cross and James Beattie as Charlie.

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.
