More Mr Mulliner

By PG Wodehouse Dramatised by Roger Davenport. Wodehouse's great fabulist Mr Mulliner returns in four new dramatisations that celebrate the adventures and misadventures of the far-flung Mulliner clan. With Richard Griffiths as Mr Mulliner regaling the regulars of the Angler's Rest, it is no wonder that the companionable drinkers fall so easily into portraying the characters in the stories. NB The first series of stories is called Meet Mr Mulliner.
