Program Description

Broadcast October 10-31, 1993. P.G Wodehouse's unflappable butler and his scatterbrained master return for a third series, once again featuring Hugh Laurie as man about town Bertie Wooster, and Stephen Fry as his valet, Jeeves.

301: 10/10/1993: Bertie Wooster has returned to New York, accompanied as ever by the inimitable gentlemans gentleman, Jeeves. He hopes to lead a quiet life, but finds himself plagued by friends and family - including the formidable Aunt Agatha.

302: 10/17/1993: No sooner has Bertie extricated himself from one unwelcome engagement than another former financ, the gruesome Honoria Glossop, turns up like the proverbial bad penny.

303: 10/24/1993: Back in England, Lady Florence Craye is in danger of becoming available once more, Stilton Cheesewright regularly threatens him with bodily harm, and to top it off, Bertie is arrested in a nightclub.

304: 10/31/1993: Bertie is in a jubilant mood at the news of the forthcoming marriage of Madeline Bassett to Roderick Spode. With less than a week to go before the big day, and with Lady Florence Craye also engaged, Bertie is confident that he can consider himself a free man. Jeeves, however, has decided to err on the side of caution.
