EDIT
The always-chivalrous Bertie is called on to protect Pauline Stoker from a mysterious stranger who's been following her about London. Their ensuing trip to Chufnell Regis embroils Bertie in goings-on that include a compromising overnight stay at an inn, a birthday party on the Stoker's yacht, a group of black-face minstrels, and an unlikely alliance with Sir Roderick Glossop, all coming to a head on the night when Old Boggy is said to walk the streets of Chufnell Regis. As usual, Jeeves comes up with a solution to everyone's dilemmas.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • This episode is one of few that reveals the darker side of Bertie's supposedly whimsical post-WWI era. Minstrel shows (white men performing in black-face) had entered a decline entering the 1900s, but were still very popular and incredibly racist.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Wooster: By Jove, Jeeves! An idea suddenly occurs to me. It's all very well for Stoker to talk airily about marrying us off, but he can't do it. Miss Stoker will simply put her ears back and refuse to cooperate. You can lead a horse to the altar, Jeeves, but you can't make it drink.

      • Jeeves: Foreign travel often liberates emotions best kept in check, sir. The air of North America is notoriously stimulating in this regard, as witness: the regrettable behavior of its inhabitants in 1776.
        Wooster: Oh? What happened in 1776, Jeeves?
        Jeeves: I prefer not to dwell on it if it's convenient to you, sir.
