Paul Temple

Created by Francis Durbridge
(1912-1998)

“By Timothy!”

Anthony Hulme and Joy Shelton in the 1946 film Send for Paul Temple.

Once upon a time, one of the most popular private detectives of all time was PAUL TEMPLE.

Unless you were American.

But Temple ruled the U.K. and much of the Commonwealth, and his exploits entertained millions of fans around the world. He made his first appearance in a BBC radio serial in 1938 and went on to appear in further radio serials, several novels, four feature films, a BBC television series in the sixties and even a long-running daily comic strip that lasted almost twenty years. But his main stomping ground was radio–the show was good for a whopping thirty-year run, initially airing on the BBC and then sent out internationally with the result that Paul Temple, even now, has fans all over the world.

Temple is a mystery author turned private eye (and shit magnet–trouble just seems to follow him), who is frequently “sent for” by Scotland Yard to “help out.” Aiding him in almost all of his investigations is his faithful journalist wife, Louise, known to one and all as “Steve,” after her writing pen name of Steve Trent. Also frequently lending a hand is Sir Graham Forbes of Scotland Yard, who would join the couple at the end of each show to offer a post-mortem of sorts on the case at hand.

They were structured very much in the manner of a traditional mystery, up to and including the concluding gathering of the suspects, and were invariably set in the genteel world of the upper classes, even if Temple himself is closer to Sherlock Homes than, say, Miss Marple. Still, the stories themselves were often quite suspenseful, and the radio serials were full of edge-of-your-seat ending, but nobody was ever going to mistake Temple for a member of the hard-boiled school–after all, he smoked a pipe and his favourite expletive was “By Timothy.”

Nor were the shows in any way particularly innovative–they relied heavily on a handful of much-loved tropes. So much so, in fact, that there was once a site (now sadly defunct) called Paul Temple and the Cliched Affair which broke down the formula and listed them, noting for example that

  • Every episode should end in a cliffhanger, if at all possible
  • The villain operates under an alias, and isn’t shy about meeting Paul under that alias
  • The bad guys kidnap Steve (or try to)
  • Someone will contact Paul, offering to meet somewhere to give him evidence on the case, only to be murdered before divulging that information
  • Paul and/or Steve run into an old friend who needs their help
  • Paul and Steve will gayly swap banter back and forth in Nick and Nora fashion
  • Paul is warned off the case by someone who later turns up dead
  • Paul and/or Steve are forced off the road (usually by a driver wearing a scarf over his face)
  • An attempt is made to kill Paul and/or Steve
  • The big finale will have Paul and Steve inviting all the suspects to a Nick and Nora-style cocktail party or dinner, where they’ll reveal the culprit
  • Perhaps the biggest trope of all: the mystery writer who actually solves actual crimes. Durbridge didn’t create it, of course, and he certainly wasn’t the last one to do it.

According to 20th Century Crime and Mystery Writers:

Francis Durbridge, Temple’s creator, is “a master of the cliffhanger, albeit verbal rather than unpleasantly physical. Durbridge has kept tight control over his creation over the years, being involved in almost all subsequent projects. The books were merely quickie novelizations of the radio scripts at first, but as the character’s popularity increased, wholly original adventures were soon being printed. A few of the books were even credited to “Paul Temple,” actually a pseudonym of Durbridge and fellow writer Douglas Rutherford.

There were four films in the forties, and in the fifties, a daily comic strip ran in the U.K. And in the late sixties, a television show made it on to the air, in colour even (all the films had been in black and white). There were other changes as well — for the first time, Francis Durbridge relinquished control and didn’t write the stories. Also, instead of the much-loved serials of the radio show, the series featured standalone episodes for the most part. Even more disconcerting to older fans were that the series was set squarely in to the swinging 60s, often abroad, and many of the old characters, such as Sir Graham Forbes, were tossed, although new characters were added to the roster. Still, the show proved popular enough to run for four series.

Not a bad run at all, if you ask me. Even now, I get quite a bit of mail about this character, and it’s not all from Brits of a certain age.

Unfortunately, about a third of the earliest original radio broadcasts have been lost over the years, mostly due to BBC cost-cutting measures (“Hey, we can tape over these!”), with all the surviving original shows released by the BBC Radio Collection, and in the 2000s, they began re-recording and airing the remaining episodes with new actors,  using the original sound effects and theme music when possible, all in an effort to retain as much as faithful as possible to the original broadcasts.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Francis Henry Durbridge was born in Hull, Yorkshire, in 1912 and attended Bradford Grammar School, where his writing was encouraged by an English teacher. He went on to read English at Birmingham University., where while still an undergraduate, he sold his first script to the BBC. Upon graduation, he worked as a stockbroker’s clerk, but continued to write scripts under a slew of pen names, selling as many as seventy of them to the BBC. By 1938, he was writing full time, and that’s when he created Paul Temple–he never looked back.  He cranked out radio shows, films, and stage plays featuring Temple, and was involved in the comic strip and television shows as well. He later created another series character, Tim Frazer, an undercover agent who appeared in both novels and as a TV series, and continued writing for the stage, as well as penning over twenty other stanalone novels, mostly thrillers, in his long career.

UNDER OATH

  • “In a burst of nostalgia I came across your page about Paul Temple. You expected the interest will be limited to “Brits of certain age”. Well, I’m definitely of certain age, but I must tell you that the Paul Temple radio series was a big hit in Israel in the early sixties. Streets were empty on Monday 21:00 when it was broadcasted (in Hebrew, of course). I remember myself in my own Bat-Mitsva (my 12th birthday) sneaking out of the banquet hall with my transistor, not to miss the weekly program.
    — blessings from Rachel, in Israel
  • “One thing that fascinated me as an 11-year-old in 1938,  prior to being evacuated out of London to where no radio was available , was the music. Both the intro and ending were awesome, hair-raising stuff… I never forgot it.”
    George Sautereau
  • “Sorry to burst your bubble, but I am American, and I remember Paul Temple quite fondly. Mind you, I grew up in Detroit, and my parents and I heard the show coming in from across the border from Windsor, probably from the local CBC station.”
    — Lorne Jackson

NOVELS

Many of the radio scripts were novelized by Francis Durbridge between 1938 and 1989, often in collaboration with John Thewes, Douglas Rutherford or Charles Hatten. Those with Rutherford were published under the pen-name “Paul Temple”, in fact.

SHORT STORIES

  • “Light-Fingers” (1950, The Daily Mail Annual for Boys and Girls)
    Adapted from special Christmas broadcast. According to reader Adam Jezard, “The story is actually a bit of a brainteaser, as children’s stories tended to be in those far-off days, and challenged readers to work out how Paul solved the case and check their answers with the solution provided by Durbridge at the end of the book.”  The story was eventually reprinted in The Armchair Detective in 1993″.

4 thoughts on “Paul Temple

  1. I first heard of Paul Temple in the early 1980s, when a Los Angeles area public radio station (KCRW, Santa Monica College) broadcast several of the early 60s radio serials. I remember the titles of the Jonathan, Margo, and Geneva mysteries, though I’m darned if I remember anything about the stories. I became a steady listener. The stories were fun, though frustrating because you needed a scorecard to keep track of characters and clues from episode to episode. Peter Coke and Marjorie Westbury made a perfect Paul and Steve (by the way, thanks for finally explaining her nickname). They had a charming rapport that made one believe some rather unbelievable dialogue.

    Strange to relate, the only detail I remember about any of the episodes was the time Paul and Steve visited that disreputable swingin’ rock’n’roll night spot, The Groove Club. Steve moaned about the loud, awful music. However the background music the producer pulled from the BBC archive sounded more like a genteel 1950s jazz club. You could almost hear the musicians’ berets and goatees. It was hilarious.

  2. This is a great piece.
    I have been a Paul Temple fan since the mid 90’s when my mum gave me a cassette to keep me occupied while i was off school sick and laid up in bed.

    One question though, does any know if the Conrad Case was ever actually published in book form? I know its listed on Amazon, but i have never found, seen or heard of a copy in the wild??!?

    1. Thanks, Alex. As for the Conrad Case, it looks like it was only released as an audiobook, perhaps the victim of diminishing returns. Or it was released thirty years ago, and Amazon no longer has any. You might try some of the used book places.
