The Australian-born actor enjoyed a distinguished stage, film and TV career but was best known for playing the pugnacious barrister Rumpole. Rumpole creator Sir John Mortimer led the tributes, saying: He was a wonderful actor. He not only played the character Rumpole, he added to it, brightened it and brought it fully to life. He was a very private man who never failed in his public performances. Horace Rumpole was the wonderful creation of Barrister and author John Mortimer and was, I suspect, to some extent based upon Mortimer himself. Rumpole never prosecutes - only defends - and resists all pressure from she who must be obeyed i. his wife Hilda, to become a QC Queem's Counsel or Queer Customer as Rumpole has it. Although not the best performance of Rumpole - a part played for years on TV by Leo McKern - these 13 episodes provide a great introduction to Rumpole, played here by Maurice Denham, with that doyen of radio drama Margot Boyd as Hilda. After Rumpole fails to convince Judge Bullingham to grant an adjournment in the fraud case to find Blythe, he decides to fake his own death: he collapses in the middle of his application to Bullingham, sends a message to Chambers supposedly from his wife informing them that he is dead, and hides in his house for some time possibly a week or more. until Blythe shows up at the door, offering Mrs. Rumpole the same pittance of a settlement he usually offered.
