Episode Summary

EDIT
Rumpole's Return
AIRED:
Retirement on the hottest coast of the Former Colonies, at Hilda's behest, is not proving to be Rumpole's cup of tea or his glass of Pommeroy's. Lying on a Florida beach ogling the girls is getting to be a bore, and then the chance of a murder case in London turning on bloodstains (Rumpole's favourite kind) comes up, and the game's afoot. The old boy finds he has to inveigle himself back into his old Chambers in Equity Court (which are getting along very comfortably without him) while at the same time dealing with a dangerous cult, but he feels he's home. Now what does the future hold?moreless

  • What a return it is

    9.0
    Though a bit tedious in spots (as 100 minute episode will be) it did hold my interest. Rumpole has retired to Florida with his wife after losing 10 straight cases. But the murder of a prominent figure in London catches his interest since it involves a note written in blood (Rumpole's specialty). He returns to England and Chambers, defends an obscenity case, which he loses, and then is asked by his replacement in Chambers to help out with the murder case. Figuring the case to be quite hopeless, he hopes Rumpole will lose and go back to Florida. Boy is he in for a surprise, especially when Rumpole ties the murder to a religious cult he briefly encountered in Florida. Wonder what his replacement is doing now...:)moreless
