Horden and Briers are as good as ever. There is some serious overacting elsewhere among the cast, but it's still good stuff.
The story features Bertie Wooster, who begins to feel a dread that the inhabitants and the aura of Bumpleigh Hall are invading his world, when he runs into a former fiancee, Lady Florence Craye, the daughter of his uncle by marriage Lord Worplesdon, who is married to Bertie’s aunt Agatha (a woman who Bertie prefers to avoid wherever possible). When Bertie then meets up with an old school friend, ‘Stilton’ Cheesewright, Florence’s fiance, and then learns that Lord Worplesdon has consulted Jeeves on a sensitive business matter, Bertie’s heart sinks further. It couldn’t get any worse – could it?
Of course, it does, as Bertie and Jeeves end up having to travel to the centre of the web itself, and take up residence around Bumpleigh Hall. There, Bertie must avoid the snares of matrimonial entanglements, save his pal Boko Fittleworth’s engagement to Nobby Hopwood, help Uncle Percy with his business negotiations, and avoid the long arm of the law.
This is classic PGW, and shows a great maturity from the master in characterisation, style and pacing. Jeeves is there to assist the young master in his imperturbable manner, and Bertie throws himself into his varying roles throughout the story with great verve and derring-do. Richard Briers plays Bertie wonderfully; the mannerisms and tone are absolutely right; Michael Hordern is the wonderfully correct Jeeves. The rest of the cast are absolutely superb, including Michael Kilgarriff as Stilton Cheesewright, Jonathan Cecil as Boko Fittleworth, and Peter Woodthorpe playing Percy, Lord Worplesdon to the hilt. An absolutely delightful Bertie and Jeeves tale, this is a totally marvellous full-cast dramatisation, which you will find yourself laughing out loud to while listening, and replaying frequently.
