Art for money’s sake drives the farce forward in the penultimate episode of the upper-crust comedy. The choleric Lord Hannibal Didcot, played with a deep and convincing signature growl by John Sessions, thinks the canvas of a roly-poly popsie he bought from Clarence is a fake, and he wants his money back. His rumbles fall on deaf ears, since Clarence is busy posing with the Empress for a visiting American artist, Vanessa Polk (Daisy Beaumont), and Freddie is trying to shift a painting of a horse.
If the regular cast look just slightly bored in their gilded Wodehousian cage, Julian Rhind-Tutt brings proceedings to life. His return as the rakish Galahad, with his lightly devilled schemes and willingness to educate Freddie in the ways of the heart, is as welcome as any visitor to the great house could be.
Hannibal Didcot is bullying Clarence over a fake painting, while Connie is keen for the irascible lord to propose to her new best friend, wealthy American Vanessa Polk. Galahad and Freddie, however, believe this fair maiden should be spared such a fate and set out to prevent the match. Period comedy based on the stories by PG Wodehouse, starring Timothy Spall and Jennifer Saunders, with guest appearances by John Sessions, Julian Rhind-Tutt and Daisy Beaumont.
