Downton Abbey - PG Wodehouse style!
Here we have a glorious ensemble of Woodhousian characters knocking
elbows to foreheads in the elegant and grand Blandings
Freddy Threepwood, the vagrant son of doddering old Lord Emsworth
of Blandings Castle. Freddy has recently become engaged to Aline
Peters, the American heiress of an irascible father. The snag is
that Freddy seems to have at one point become enamored of a
struggling actress, Joan Valentine, and written some impetuous and
imprudent letters to her. Joan has now moved on and is currently
employed as a writer for a magazine’s society column. Freddy has
employed a certain R. Jones, a man of portly and dubious character,
to attempt to buy back Freddy’s letters, and keep his engagement
safe. We also meet Ache Marson, an athlete who writes the Gridley
Quayle series of pulp mystery stories, and also lives in the flat
just below the actress/writer Joan Valentine. Got that strait?
Sound confusing? Wait till we get going.

Enjoyed it very much
From Anonymous of Gentry, Arkansas on 3/19/2016.
I think this type of English comedy is one of what Mr. Harrison does best. This was on the podcast awhile ago and I really enjoyed it.
