Jeremy Hutchinson, who has died at the age of 102, gained a reputation as one of the greatest advocates of his time.
He made his reputation in high-profile obscenity trials from an era when the Establishment was under attack from a more liberal social order.
He was on the team that defended the publishers of Lady Chatterley's Lover - other clients included Christine Keeler and Soviet spy George Blake.
He was the model for John Mortimer's character Rumpole of the Bailey.

Hmmm. Didn’t think so. 

Let’s see

Are you familiar with Lady Chatterley?

Who???
She obviously had a penchant for blathering
Have you ever seen naked Romans in Britain?
No

lol. but i've seen naked roamings but not in Britain. 

So Jeremy was the model for Rumpole of the Bailey. Great show, made greater by Leo McKern.

nah, its just that this topic is about a flipping dead judge, and its in the Poll section.  It all points either to the north or the south POLE.

If I hadn't scratched my head over Jeremy in the polls, I'd never have read the whole thing noting that he was the model for Rumpole - he was always referring to his wife as "she who will not be named".

Leo McKern as Rumpole. 

Leo is probably most recognized for his role as Clang in Help!
