He’s back! Budleigh Salterton’s most famous citizen is off round the world on another five adventures. Meet Giles Wemmbley Hogg. 2m’s, 2g’s. Traveller, backpacker, ethnologist, fearless investigator of cultural diversity, and upper middle-class student ponce from Budleigh Salterton. And this time, Giles has graduated from University, with a first!
He’s actually the first person ever to have finished a course in Canadian Studies, and now he’s on the job market and looking for anyone who’ll have him.
In each episode, with his trusty portable DAT and his Charterhouse rugby shirt, Giles tries his hand at the sort of jobs that only rich fathers’ rich friends get for their idiot sons. Each week he travels to far-off foreign lands and joins the exotic world of work, and each week he makes a thumping great prat of himself!
Two Ls two Gs. Giles is as endearingly hilarious as ever in this brilliant third instalment, genuinely funny.
I'm a big fan of GWH and am slowing buying my way through the back catalogue.
The writing for this series is of a much higher quality than series 2 but the performances and production remain very high.
The audio quality is superb with balanced levels throughout all the episodes.
As with the other releases, there is a missing episode from the original radio transmission (booo!) which would have been nice for the sake of completion.
Worth a punt though...
