“Modern day Rumpole” series optioned by Revelation
No Exit Press is pleased to announce that the option on the TV and film rights to Peter Murphy’s Walden of Bermondsey series has been acquired by Revelation Content and Media Limited. Peter Murphy recently retired as a judge after a career in the law, and Walden of Bermondsey, a collection of humorous and satirical short stories told through the eyes of a Crown Court judge, is based in part on his own experiences. Published in November, the book has been hailed as a worthy successor to John Mortimer’s Rumpole stories, as well building on the tradition of Henry Cecil and AP Herbert. A second volume of the stories, Judge Walden: Back in Session, will be published in May 2018.
