Rumpole and the Female of the Species
AIRED:
Rumpole defends Tony Timson, who is accused of driving the getaway car for a bungled robbery by the Molloy gang - a gang whose relationship with the Timsons is about as warm as that between the Montagues and the Capulets. Meanwhile, Fiona Allways applies to join Rumpole's chambers at number 3, Equity Court, and this meets with opposition from an unexpected quarter - Phyllida.moreless

  • Rumpole the manipulator

    9.0
    Intriguing story about Rumpole's attempts to get his latest pupil, Fiona, into Chambers despite the fact she is female. But Rumpole starts the rumor mill going, while handling the Timsons again. Phyllida is originally handed the case but the defendant wants Rumpole and he is handed the lead reins, so to speak, with Phyllida as junior. Some stolen money was found in the defendant's washing machine which he claims was planted. Through intense grilling of witnesses and authorities on the stand, Rumpole is able to bring this to light, and even though he is not quite sure who did it, he creates reasonable doubt and gets the acquittal. Fiona becomes the newest member of chambers and Phyllida is promoted to Q.C.moreless
