He becomes an innocent on the run, pursued by the police for a murder he didn't commit. In Scotland, Hannay realises that the notebook he recovered from the dead man is worth far more than he first thought, not least of all to a gang of German spies who will apparently stop at nothing to retrieve it. The Foreign Office in London is his last refuge of safety, and when Sir Walter Bullivant becomes convinced of Hannay's innocence, the two join forces. If they are to foil German plans to attack the British fleet, they must first unlock the notebook's secret of the 39 steps... Members Reviews: Bravo! Superb! The cast is fabulous and the quality is what you'd expect from a BBC production. It is a shame that it's abridged but you cannot have everything. Plus, it's always great to hear Tom Baker! Buy it! love this book, and the film loved this book. it's a true classic of mine, loved the film as well. Great Brilliant I just live these old style war thrillers, some great 'non-pc' lines and such a devil may care attitude. Yes it's a thriller but it's incredibly relaxing to listen to. cracking yarn set at the advent of WW1 . Top notch performances by all the cast , I really got into the story , it is John Buchan's finest novel set with a lucid imagined picture drawn by this excellent production . I thoroughly recommend this version . Enjoyable and Different Enjoyed this different take in the Thirty Nine Steps starring good old Dr Who Tom Baker as usual loud and striking. No matter what it is Baker acts, he steals the show. Excellent full cast and one to listen to many times. Contact me for any questions:
