Episode Summary

EDIT
Rumpole and the Judge's Elbow
AIRED:

Rumpole defends a man charged with running massage parlours as brothels, and his former colleague in chambers Mr Justice Featherstone finds himself in an embarrassing position. The prospect of appointment as a Judge is dangled in front of Rumpole - and it is suggested that he might wish to handle the defence of his present case with suitable discretion, so to speak… The troublesome Heathstoke is anxious to drive the Chambers at Number 3, Equity Court, into the twentieth century - and he tries to oust both Rumpole and Henry, the chambers clerk, into the outer darkness.

    Guthrie Featherstone, now a judge, injures his elbow playing tennis and on the not-so-great advice of a collegue has it treated at a massage parlor. Shortly after his visit, the parlor is shut down and the owner charged with turning it into a brothel. To complicate matters further for Guthrie he used a credit card the records of which may now be used in court by Rumpole who is defending the owner. Interesting how Guthrie tries to get out of this case but keeps meeting dead ends. Much to his surprise his credit card statement actually clears him of having anything to do with the case.moreless
