List of Jeeves and Wooster episodes

"Aunt Dahlia, Cornelia And Madeline" is the sixth episode of the third series of the 1990s British comedy television series Jeeves and Wooster. It is also called "Comrade Bingo". It first aired on 3 May 1992 (1992-05-03) on ITV.[1]

In the US, it was aired as the fourth episode of the second series of Jeeves and Wooster on Masterpiece Theatre, on 17 January 1993.[2]


Adapted from "Comrade Bingo" (collected in The Inimitable Jeeves) and "Jeeves Makes an Omelette" (collected in A Few Quick Ones).[2]



Bingo Little has joined The Red Dawn, an outspoken Communist group, to be near Charlotte Rowbotham, with whom he is in love. Bertie is pushed by Aunt Dahlia into going to Marsham Manor (near Goodwood) with her so she can get Cornelia Fothergill to sign her latest novel to her, so she can use it in her magazine. However, she doesn't tell Bertie that she wants him to steal a painting to accomplish this (we see why Bertie would never have made it as a burglar). Roderick Spode is also there, now the seventh earl of Sidcup (the sixth Earl having died) and is giving a farewell tour to his Black Shorts.
