More Mr Mulliner

New series 1/4. The Bishop's Move by PG Wodehouse. Dramatised by Roger Davenport.
Wodehouse's great fabulist Mr Mulliner returns in a new series of dramatisations. With Richard Griffiths as Mr Mulliner regaling the regulars of the Angler's Rest, it is no wonder that the companionable drinkers fall so easily into portraying the characters in the stories. It is their urging that brings him back to the massively potent tonic, Buck-U-Uppo. Producer/Director Ned Chaillet
