Dock Brief – The Nine Pleaders by Jedd (John Edwards)

The bench of nine barristers recalls the days of dock briefs at a guinea a time. Certainly looks like Rumpole there fourth from the left. You must know Rumpole.

One of our male cats was Rumpole and generally referred to as ‘Horace ‘ (Horace W. Rumpole). If you don’t know Rumpole of the Bailey, he was a fictional character in a British television series created and written by the British writer and barrister John Mortimer.  The books and recordings are widely available.
