Trivia

Doctor Who (1963) producer Peter Bryant was transferred onto it by the BBC to replace Alan Bromly and help lift what was perceived to be an ailing series following the first run. He was soon joined by Derrick Sherwin, who had been his story editor on Doctor Who and had briefly succeeded him to produce Patrick Troughton's departure story and Jon Pertwee's debut story. Sherwin insisted that he would only do it if he was made a full co-producer on Paul Temple. Doctor Who's uncredited script assistant Trevor Ray also moved across to help address story issues.

Best Television Show Ever!
31 December 2006 | by stevegold123See all my reviews

Paul Temple, in my opinion, is the most under-rated television show in history. I used to watch the show when it was first screened (in Australia) in the early 70's and I became a big fan of the show. I wish I could see this again if they ever release this fantastic show on DVD. I would be the first to buy it. Francis Matthews was perfect casting for the part of the lead character Paul Temple. Also, Ros Drinkwater was perfect as his assistant "Steve". The stories were always original and kept you interested and guessing until the very end. The acting from both the lead and supporting cast members was always top-notch. Let's just hope that the BBC releases these fantastic episodes very soon so that everyone might enjoy them as I have.
