Who would think that an eighteenth-century silver cow creamer could cause so much trouble? Uncle Tom wants it, Sir Watkyn Bassett has it, and Aunt Dahlia is blackmailing Bertie to steal it. With relations between Bertie and Sir Watkyn being far from cordial (ever since the Boat Race night, when Sir Watkyn fined the young Wooster five pounds for pinching a policeman’s helmet), the situation looks tricky. Arriving at Totleigh Towers, Sir Watkyn’s country seat, matters get progressively worse. The nightmare crew includes not only that fierce old magistrate but his right-hand man, the frightful Roderick Spode. Add to that Madeline Bassett, Gussie Fink-Nottle, Stiffy Byng, and Harold “Stinker” Pinker and there’s only one thing to say: “What ho, Jeeves!”

Quotes & Awards

  • “Jonathan Cecil’s gifted narration brings uniqueness to this (among the many) audio presentation of the ongoing adventures of Jeeves and Bertie. The narrator adopts a mixture of seriousness and hilarity in this story about a much coveted eighteenth-century cow creamer and Bertie's attempt to “rescue” it for his always difficult Aunt Dahlia. It is a credit to Cecil's style that listeners will listen closely to and follow the frequent puns, misunderstandings, and wordplay.”


  • “Bertie and Jeeves are at their best in The Code of the Woosters.” 


  • “Wodehouse is the funniest writer—that is, the most resourceful and unflagging deliverer of fun—that the human race, a glum crowd, has yet produced.”

    New Yorker

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Elena | 9/30/2010

    " Great fun--this time there were twice as many sundered hearts than usual and Bertie stands up to his aunt, off-stage at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Mike | 7/3/2010

    " Not one of the better Bertie/Jeeves efforts, but still outstanding. Bertie must grapple with no fewer than five aunts at the same country house. Gussie and Madeline Bassett's engagement again becomes imperiled... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Rissie | 5/30/2010

    " Pretty standard Wodehouse fare – crazy plot, hilarious writing, spot-on descriptions and a wild cast of loony characters. My idea of perfect beach reading! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Becky | 2/24/2010

    " British humor and I don't mix well.

    Must revise review. It seems I do like Wodehouse. This one was just too over the top. Too many layers of ridiculous relationship trouble. "
