About Rumpole of the Bailey
In John Mortimer's satirical look at criminal law and the workings of the Old Bailey, Horace Rumpole is a barrister who spouts Wordsworth to himself and is famed among colleagues for his battered hat and general slovenliness. His wife, known as "She who must be obeyed," sometimes thinks Rumpole has been so busy playing parts in courts that he's lost all trace of his own identity.
