This is a great old series not to be missed its better the second time around.
Such a great series so glad that I could order this it is a very old series. Really cleaver use from a wordsmith that Leo suits this part so well.
I am extremely satisfied with my Rumpole of the Bailey. Having watched and enjoyed the programmes many years ago, it is a joy to see them again.
My wife loved this series over the years. Now, we can watch again at our leisure - with subtitles (as we are both hard of hearing). Thank you Zavvi! You did us proud!
For me Rumpole of the Bailey is worth buying as I loved it the first time around and I think it still holds its magic.
With a bit more time on my hand, I look forward to watching the whole series. Well packaged, and promptly delivered this boxed set is just too much to digest in one go. Lots of rich plots, characterisation, and of course, the indomitable Leo McKern as Rumpole. However, now that it is Lent, I'm gong to leave this till after Easter, before I get into it.
The series may be a bit retro but it is still excellent viewing.
Superb collection of all episodes of the sublime Rumpole; and what great value from Sendit!

Rumpole of the Bailey - The Complete Collection is an outstandingly enjoyable compendium of all but one of the Rumpole episodes. The combination of John Mortimer QC's witty insight as author and Leo McKern's masterful interpretation of Horace Rumpole, the 'Old Bailey hack' guarantees great entertainment - and it's delivered with a great spadeful. Ably supported by a huge ensemble cast of many of the UK's leading comic and straight actors, this is a timeless reverie of enjoyment which points up the lunacies of the law that are still relevant today. This DVD set is worth buying at almost any price. I mentioned earlier that it is missing 1 episode: 'Rumpole and the Confession of Guilt'. This was the pilot episode aired by the BBC in the early 1970s and I can only assume that rights issues have required it to be left out - a great pity but it is available as a standalone item on a Region 1 disc. This in no way detracts from the 37+ hours of viewing in this collection that awaits you. Buy it!
It was a joy to get this on DVD. Brillian acting, sharp scripts. What's not to like? Pity modern day TV isn't up to the same quality as this. I'm sure you'll enjoy this too.
Great series from the 1970s LEO MCKERN great acting role as Rumpole.bought as a present ,great PRICE.
