Series 2 finds the dysfunctional inhabitants of Blandings Castle caught up in more uproarious adventures, from dodging an insane asylum to thwarting a most unseemly memoir. Clarence and Connie must also contend with a spate of unwelcome houseguests, including the irascible Duke of Dunstable (Harry Enfield, Skins) and their dreadful older sister, Charlotte (Celia Imrie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), who seems determined to make Blandings her permanent home. With guest stars including Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones) and Robert Bathurst (Downton Abbey), these seven pitch-perfect adaptations capture Wodehouse’s masterful skewering of the British upper classes. . Episode One: Throwing Eggs
The odious Duke of Dunstable plans to have Clarence committed. It’s up to Freddie and Beach, Blanding’s port-fueled butler, to hatch a scheme that will rescue him. It involves an imposter, two star- crossed lovers – and plenty of eggs.

Episode Two: Dirty Work at the Crossroads
Clarence’s terrifying sister, Charlotte, has threatened to move into Blandings – permanently. And if that’s not enough pressure, the Empress has some competition in the upcoming fat pig contest. Freddie has an extreme solution to solve both crises.

Episode Three: Hallo to All This
Clarence’s younger brother Galahad is at Blandings, penning a scandalous memoir. Connie is desperate to save the family name and enlists Freddie’s help in keeping the manuscript away from the publisher.

Episode Four: Lord Emsworth Acts for the Best
Clarence’s new beard is an embarrassment, but things are about to get worse. The heating at Blandings is on the fritz when a Hollywood film crew arrives. Freddie immediately falls for the star actress, and only Lord Emsworth can convince her of Freddie’s honorable intentions.

Episode Five: Sticky Wicket at Blandings
Colonel Fanshawe is visiting Blandings with a swanky proposition for Clarence, and Connie is desperate to impress. But Beach is asleep on the job – literally. Fanshawe’s daughter complicates Freddie’s life by stealing his Aunt Julia’s dog.

Episode Six: Necessary Rhino
Hannibal Didcot accuses Clarence of selling him a fake painting. Connie tries to distract Hannibal with a wealthy American heiress who is visiting Blandings. And Clarence’s brother Galahad has his own plan to teach the bully Hannibal a lesson.

Episode Seven: The Custody of the Pumpkin
Fed up with her troublesome nephew, Connie plans to marry Freddie off to Sir Gregory’s peculiar niece, Felicity. But plans are complicated when Clarence refuses to give up a prize pumpkin as part of the deal. . Series Cast

Classy Silliness
If you've seen the Blandings manor on PBS or other venue, then you either appreciate the humor or abhor it. For those that haven't, it's like Fawlty Towers with a bgger budget and more of the characters are quite mad.
