Based on the satirical novel by Evelyn Waugh (Brideshead Revisited), this acclaimed BBC One series follows Paul Pennyfeather (Jack Whitehall, Fresh Meat), a hapless and unassuming theology student at Oxford. After being expelled following an incident with one of Oxford's infamous social clubs, Pennyfeather is shipped off to Wales to teach at a third-rate private school, run by Fagan (David Suchet, Agatha Christie's Poirot). At the school, Pennyfeather is entranced by the wealthy mother of one of his students (Eva Longoria, Desperate Housewives).

I absolutely loved this! I was laughing from start to finish. If you liked Tom Jones, you'll love this. Don't miss it!
Great production, casting, and performances, and, of course, screenplay adapted from what must be great original writing from Waugh. Very funny and intelligent throughout.
