Brilliant Blandings!, 4 Feb 2014
I absolutely loved this BBC production of PG Wodehouse's country-house centred comic classic. Wodehouse is my favourite writer, and this series is a joy to watch. Pure escapism, very funny, with stellar acting from Timothy Spall as the dotty but kind-hearted Lord Emsworth, Mark Williams as his butler, Beach, Jack Farthing as his over-excited puppy of a son, Freddy and Jennifer Saunders as his domineering sister, Connie, plus unforgettable guest appearances from the likes of David Walliams as Emworth's buttoned up secretary, all delivering Wodehouse's pricelessly funny lines as to the manor born. Each episode is delightful and I am thrilled a new series is on the way.
