Product Description

Six acclaimed dramatizations starring Michael Hordern and Richard Briers as Jeeves and Wooster. Also featuring Maurice Denham, Paul Eddington, David Jason, John Le Mesurier, Miriam Margolyes, Jonathan Cecil, Liza Goddard, and Patrick Cargill. In The Inimitable Jeeves, Aunt Agatha is forcing Bertie to get engaged to the formidable Honoria Glossop. Can Jeeves save the day? In The Code of the Woosters, who would think that a silver cow-creamer could cause so much trouble? Uncle Tom wants it and Aunt Dahlia is blackmailing Bertie to steal it. Right Ho, Jeeves sees mayhem breaking out at Brinkley Court, but there are more brains in the Wooster household than just Jeeves. . . In Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves, Madeline Bassett and Gussie Fink-Nottle’s engagement is on the rocks, and poor Bertie's next in line for the fair maiden’s hand. Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit finds Jeeves in for a few surprises when returns from his annual shrimping holiday in Bognor Regis. In Jeeves: Joy in the Morning, Steeple Bumphleigh is a village to be avoided for Bertie, as it contains the appalling Aunt Agatha. Still, there are good deeds to be done.

Waugh on screen

The news that Evelyn Waugh’s first and, to many, most beloved novel Decline and Fall is to be adapted by the BBC, fifty years after his death, was met with a mixed response. But the adaptation stars Jack Whitehall as Waugh’s hapless Paul Pennyfeather, and one fears that Whitehall may merely serve up a period reprise of his similarly useless pedagogue Alfie Wickers from his own show Bad Education (which he wrote with... Whether the result lives up to expectations or not, it is heartening to see one of Waugh’s comic novels being adapted for television, especially one that has been attempted only once before, in the Sixties, and then extremely badly. (A shame: one wishes for Michael Hordern as Prendergast, James Robertson Justice as Dr Fagan and Terry-Thomas as Grimes. ) Although Waugh seems to have been adapted a fair amount over the years, his reputation in terms of television lies almost entirely on the seminal (if, it can now be said, overlong) ITV version of Brideshead Revisited (1981), with little else... The writer who is perhaps most closely associated with Waugh today, outside his family, is William Boyd. Having being compared with him early in his career ("you can just as easily be described as a ‘poor man’s Kingsley Amis’", he told me recently when I asked him about his experiences of adapting Waugh. "in fact I think we’re very dissimilar writers"), he went on to adapt Scoop in 1987, and in 2001 turned the Sword of Honour trilogy into a three-hour, two-part film, starring a pre-Bond Daniel Craig as Guy Crouchback. Boyd confesses to "a mild obsession" with Waugh, and has written about him extensively: "we both have a very dark sense of humour", he told me, "and Waugh's sense of humour has always been, in my opinion, his greatest asset. Boyd’s first foray into Waugh-land with Scoop was panned, and he says now that "we did get a pasting but, in my opinion, that was because the film was ludicrously over-trumpeted and we were heading for a fall, come what may. I think it's very good – with a brilliant cast – and very funny". One imagines that if Decline and Fall were to obtain half that number of viewers the producers would be thrilled – and not a little surprised, despite the mass appeal of Whitehall and his glamorous co-star Eva Longoria as Margot Beste-Chetwynde, a...
