SYNOPSIS:  “John Mortimer practised as a barrister for 36 years, but it was his creation of Rumpole of the Bailey which catapulted him to wider fame and fortune as his career as a novelist and screenwriter took off.

Despite Mortimer’s huge success, fame, sexual conquests and knighthood there lurked beneath that genial ‘champagne socialist’ mask a man plagued by depression, doubt, insecurity and an irresistible urge to commit adultery.”
