This chapter is a case study in putting Paul on TV, focusing on the TV series David Suchet: In the Footsteps of Saint Paul, for which the author acted as historical consultant. The chapter analyses the series' approach to Paul; its use of New Testament (and other) sources for Paul; the contribution of academics; its coverage of the subject.  The chapter also considers why Saint Paul has so rarely featured on mainstream TV.
