Over the past decade I've watched The Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad and The West Wing.
Rumpole stands alongside them as classic TV.
Great stories, brilliant scripts and fantastic acting.
It has that mark of a really great piece of drama in that after watching an hour long episode, I'll sit and discuss it for an hour more.
It's amazing to see, almost 40 years later, how much has changed in the UK....and how much hasn't! It may be dated in a few places, but it's universal in many many more....I imagine that it cost less to make EVERY episode of Rumpole (and there are lots!) than it did to make one episode of Breaking Bad or West Wing.
Just go watch it!
