Jeeves Series by P.G. Wodehouse
Jeeves and Wooster
Wodehouse 's "Jeeves" stories. It starred Hugh Laurie as Bertie Wooster , a young gentleman with a "distinctive blend of airy nonchalance and refined gormlessness ",  and Stephen Fry as Jeeves , his improbably intelligent and bold valet. The stories are set in the United Kingdom and the United States in an unspecified period between the late s and the s. Wooster is a bachelor , a minor aristocrat   and member of the idle rich. He and his friends, who are mainly members of The Drones Club , are extricated from all manner of societal misadventures by the indispensable valet "gentleman's personal gentleman" Jeeves. In the television documentary Fry and Laurie Reunited , the actors, reminiscing about their involvement in the series, revealed that they were initially reluctant to play the parts of Jeeves and Wooster, but eventually decided to do so because the series was going to be made with or without them and they felt no one else would do the parts justice.
So much of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie's appeal appears to lie in the clash of attitudes they had between themselves and other comedy partnerships. However, keeping such company resulted in a space being left for the calmer, gentler approach that Fry and Laurie would adapt for the bulk of their working partnership, culminating in Jeeves and Wooster , that period piece of delightfully nincompoop misadventures experienced by England's elite. Airing between and , the dramedy is just one chapter in the then still-flowering Fry and Laurie double-act, although given the duo's desire to bring P. There you have an integral element of Jeeves and Wooster 's continued appeal: the effortless charms of Fry and Laurie. The duo are so enveloping in their performances that they envelop both themselves and the audience. Much of the enjoyment of witnessing Fry and Laurie bounce off each other's perfectly-timed mannerisms can obviously be traced back to their halcyon Cambridge days, but for us audiences, the seeds were sown with A Bit of Fry and Laurie , and even perhaps a bit of Blackadder. Between those two shows, Stephen and Hugh demonstrated how feather-smooth their on-screen relationship was, which was made all the more apparent thanks to the backdrops of A Bit of Fry and Laurie 's harsh deadpan nature, and Blackadder 's decadent re-writing of history.
