Paul Temple And The Vandyke Affair
BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatization of the Francis Durbridge classic detective thriller. Starring Peter Coke and Marjorie Westbury.
For 30 years the fictional crime novelist and detective Paul Temple and with his Fleet Street journalist wife Steve, solved cases in one of BBC Radio's most popular series.
They lived a sophisticated life of chilled cocktails and fast cars, a world where Sir Graham Forbes, of Scotland Yard, usually needed Paul's help with his latest tricky case.
In this adventure, Paul Temple is called in to investigate the disappearance of the Desmond baby, and the 'Sitter-In' Miss Millicent.
When they visit Mary Desmond, she is, understandably, very upset – it's already been a week since her eighteenth-month-old daughter vanished.
The only clue is a telephone message left in Miss Millicent's handwriting: 'A Mr Vandyke telephoned, he left no message'.
However, no-one knows who this mysterious Mr Vandyke is…
