EPISODE 5 IN A MAJOR BBC DRAMA STARRING TIMOTHY SPALL, DAVID WALLIAMS AND JENNIFER SAUNDERS
Freddie must keep his new Portuguese wife a secret from Connie.
Clarence’s niece - the lisping Gertrude - has been imprisoned at Blandings by Connie and forced to overhaul Clarence’s library. It’s driving him crazy. Gertrude’s forbidden love, the clumsy Revd Beefy Bingham, infiltrates Blandings using a false identity determined to win Clarence’s approval for the match.
Meanwhile, Freddie has inadvertently married a Portuguese exotic dancer and must do his utmost to keep it a secret from Connie.
‘Sublime comic genius’
‘You don't analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour.’
‘The funniest writer ever to put words to paper.’
‘P.G. Wodehouse remains the greatest chronicler of a certain kind of Englishness, that no one else has ever captured quite so sharply, or with quite as much wit and affection.’
