“An absolute comic delight” —Daily Mail (U.K.)
“Divine comedy” —The Sunday Telegraph (U.K.)
P.G. Wodehouse’s beloved Blandings Castle stories follow the foibles of an eccentric aristocrat, his peculiar family, and the ramshackle ancestral home they share. In this witty British series, Timothy Spall (The King’s Speech) and Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous) sparkle as Wodehouse’s madcap protagonists.
Clarence Emsworth may be the current master of Blandings Castle, but he’s hardly lord of the manor. All he wants is peace, quiet, and quality time with his prize pig, the Empress. But his run-down estate is perpetually filled with crazy characters demanding his attention, led by his imperious sister, Connie. Between her baleful stare, his son Freddie’s lack of brains, and a parade of visiting oddballs, Clarence is doing anything but living a tranquil country life. Only his loyal butler, Beach, seems to be on his side. This appealing period comedy from the master of British wit also stars Mark Williams (Harry Potter) and Jack Farthing (Agatha Christie’s Poirot).

Not exactly sure why the lack of enthusiasm expressed by some for this series, the cast and director(s) did a marvelous job considering the time constraints. Read morePublished 2 months ago by R. E. Williams
