Last week's episode ended with the four "buccaneers" full of hope, vowing to win over London society (and its eligible young men) with their good looks and large bank balances. Reality begins to impinge on this dream in the second episode, as Virginia St George sets her sights on Lord Seadown - much to the chagrin of jilted Idina Hatton (Jenny Agutter). Joining the cast tonight are James Frain as Julius, Duke of Trevenick, and Sheila Hancock as his mother, the dowager duchess. Carla Gugino, who plays the romantic Nan, is featured on page 9; Gwen Humble (who plays her mother) talks about My Kind of Day on page 138.

A Bit of Fry and Laurie
Three years on from their last series together, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are back with a new series of sketches and sophisticated lunacy. "We're slightly fatter and balder and I would hope a little wiser though I think we're a bit stupider if anything", says Laurie.
As befits the show's transition from BBC2 to BBC1, there's a more showbiz feel with a new set, two special guests each week (John Bird and Jane Booker tonight), and moody credits shot in the style of the Calvin Klein perfume ads.
