Spoilers included Warning below before mentioning them This was Long Time Ago But Still The Characterization Of Gay long time ago but still the characterization of is They never come out and say the character is gay but use lots of uphemisms It s not good Also the character is not portrayed well which gives the implication that it s because he s gay I typically really njoy these but this one was all around bad The plot was gruesome and the characters seemed indifferent to it Including kidnapping children and acting like that wasn t specially off putting was weird Spoiler alert Starting nowThe gay character is one of the bad guys which is a terrible trope gay person as villain The Paul Temple mysteries were one of the BBC s most popular radio series from 1938 to 1969 Paul Temple and the Vandyke Affair was originally cre.

Ated in 1950 and is an ye opening xperience for those in 2016 The characters are so insanely polite and proper and the sexism so rampant that I wanted to slap the lot of them at one time or another Slapping aside I njoyed this whodunnit for the twists and turns and uirky characters and the realisation of 1950 s life If you can keep in mind that the characterisation is representative of it s time in history then I d recommend it as an ntertaining read and an intriguing snapshot of 50 s English society Contains all the A Love To Remember elements youxpect from a Paul Temple adventure from inanimate objects that conceal bombs to strange things left in the Temples car to Steve being sort of abducted by the baddies i thorougly njoyed it such a fun old fashioned radio play not the best story and at times rather sexis. A sophisticated world of chilled cocktails and fast CARS WHERE THE WOMEN WERE CHIC AND THE MEN where the women were chic and the men cravats 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 .
