As always, Wodehouse's writing is like champange bubbles or skipping on a sunny day. And all in the Wodehouse Playhouse series are faithful to the effervescence of the master's original stories, (these are the only adaptions P.G. approved of.) Standing on its own, Series 3 is a five-star product. But, compared to Series 1 and 2, it slouches to 3.5-to-4 stars. John Alderton letting loose his comic brilliance is a joy to watch: like seeing an athlete at the peak of his powers or hearing a diva hit that high note with ease. But the irreplacable Pauline Collins doesn't appear in any of these stories and she is very sorely missed. Also, they've marred what was a work of the highest order of seriously goofy art by adding a grating laugh track. The first two sets in the series are superior because of including Collins. However, Series 3 is still wonderful and worth every penny.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
