I'm very pleased to be able to present another Paul Temple yarn, which has been sent over by a reader from Holland. I believe this one predates the strips that have appeared here previously. Unfortunately, none of the strips I've seen have been dated, although the language and general style have been late 1960s. There was a conscious effort in some of the later strips to alter the look of Paul Temple so that he became Francis Matthews, who was starring in the Paul Temple TV series from 1969, so that places those particular strips towards the end of the run, say circa 1970. This one might be from around 1966, although that's a very rough estimate.
The artist is John McNamara and the writer is credited as Francis Durbridge, although I suspect that he had nothing to do with the scripting; most of the Paul Temple novels were ghosted for Durbridge by various hands (Charles Hatton, Douglas Rutherford (McConnell) and Tony Hussey).
