Like repertory theater
12 March 2006 | by rjsternSee all my reviews

One of the wonderful things about this series is that the two main characters are played by the same male and female actors throughout, even though they are playing different roles. The male lead is often called "Mulliner", but he is a different person each time. It makes the series very much like repertory theater, and shows you just how versatile these actors are. They also get into the most unusual situations, like playing golf in the water, or getting locked in a cupboard. It just one laugh after another, without having to resort to vulgarity or sexism. The first series has P.G. Wodehouse himself making the introductions, which is extraordinary because he was 94 at the time and in fact died in 1975, when the series was released.
