Michael Hordern stars as Jeeves with Richard Briers as Bertie in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation. Mayhem has broken out at Brinkley Court and there would seem to be a desperate need for Jeeves. But Bertie is fed up with the assumption that he is merely an addendum to his personal attendant. There are more brains in the Wooster household than just Jeeves, you know! Stand back, Bertram Wooster is on the case.More

A classic Wodehouse story
I'm a fan of the Jeeves books mostly for Bertie Wooster, and he is wonderful as always here.
Although this is the one Wodehouse novel where I think Hugh Laurie (in the TV show) does a better "Bertie Wooster" than Richard Briers (in this audiobook), Briers remains my favourite Wooster overall and is very, very good here. The rest of the cast is very good here: the actresses playing Madeline Bassett and Aunt Dahlia nail their characters perfectly, and the entire cast does a brilliant job of bringing Wodehouse's novel to life.
It's very long! But it's only a couple of hours, and is pretty fast-paced. If I hadn't heard this story before, I might have been tempted.
