  1. I have the DVD box set of the first series in B&W fantastic stuff, also years ago in a charity shop I discovered a box full of his books, so i’m a fan, I’ll try the links.:)

  2. I thought I had seen every episode of the Perry Mason tv series until you posted that shot of aunt Bee in an episode. Now I’ll have to watch all the re-runs. Which I won’t mind at all, because it was a good show.
