An all-star cast heads up BBC One's brand new period comedy series Blandings, based on PG Wodehouse's celebrated stories and adapted by Guy Andrews (Lost in Austen). Set in 1929 in the fictional Blandings Castle, Timothy Spall plays the amiable but befuddled Lord Emsworth (Clarence to his friends), who struggles to keep his dysfunctional family in order and usually adds to the chaos himself. All Clarence wants is to be left in peace with his beloved pig The Empress but his plans are often thwarted by an array of friends, visitors, servants and spongers. Jennifer Saunders stars as his indomitable sister Connie, Jack Farthing as hapless son Freddy and Mark Williams as long-suffering butler Beach. Guest appearances during the series include David Walliams, Paloma Faith and David Bamber.
Blandings. BBC1: 6.30pm
