Meet Mr Mulliner

Listen to a sample

What to expect

Six BBC Radio dramatisations of short stories from the master of comedy, P. G. Wodehouse. Mr Mulliner is a pub raconteur with an endless supply of improbable tales featuring his innumerable relations. There is the story of ‘Honeysuckle Cottage’, haunted by the spirit of a romantic novelist set on forcing marital bliss on the unwilling resident. ‘A Slice of Life’ also features a spooky old house, plus a young heiress and a determined suitor. ‘The Smile that Wins’ centres on a dyspeptic detective whose grisly grin is his secret weapon, while ‘Open House’ is an account of frightening aunts, terrifying ingenues and resourceful butlers. ‘Came the Dawn’ is a tale of indomitable love, parental obstruction and unexpected opportunities and the final yarn, ‘Mulliner’s Buck-U-Uppo’, tells of a pale curate rendered fearless after the ingestion of a miracle potion. Starring Richard Griffiths as Mr Mulliner.
