In May 2016 German DVD company Fernsehjuwelen released series 2 to 4 of the Paul Temple TV series onto the German market.

The good news was this finally saw the release of many episodes from German TV archives, previously deemed missing. However, the bad news for English speakers was that these episodes contained the German audio only.  If you don't understand German, but want to watch these Paul Temple episodes, you won't understand what's going on.

Wrong! The good news is that I am a Paul Temple fan who does understand some German and is thus periodically creating subtitles for these 'missing episodes' to be enjoyed by all, worldwide in the English language using English subtitles for the German audio.

NOTE: These are NOT official subtitles rather 'a best as can be' fan translation project.

As Fernshjuwelen don't seem to care about ANY subtitles (neither English NOR German - what a pity!), the aim of this page is to allow those who don't speak German to at least understand these episodes' storylines. Please note, the English subtitles presented here are to be used in conjunction with the German DVD releases, not replace them.

No copyright infringement is intended here. This show just needs appreciating by everyone again.

This is solely a translation project (which takes a LOT of time!) to complement the Fernsehjuwelen releases and allow English speakers i.e. the rest of the world, to fully understand and finally get to enjoy this series again after many many years without these episodes seeing the light of day.

Please note, this takes a long time to complete and is not intended to be a perfect translation, who can translate perfectly?
The English translations in the subtitles are simply a 'best of' that allows you to enjoy the picture and story as best as possible.

How do I get the English subtitles to appear?

The English subtitles are provided here in .srt format (universal SubRip format). It is recommened these be used together with VLC Media Player - link:


(1) Start the DVD in VLC Media Player.

(2) Choose the episode you want and click the Subtitle menu, followed by Add Subtitle..

(3) Choose the appropriate subtitle (.srt) file from the list below.
Note: Some files are completely FREE to download, but some will only be made available to registered users over at the Minder forum with a minimum number of posts (registration is also free) - Arthur & Terry like the principle of give and take, so do I:
