Miss Emmeline Lucas, known universally to her friends as Lucia, is a dreadful snob, but in Miss Elizabeth Mapp of Mallards, Lucia meets her match. On the surface they are the most genteel of society ladies, but beneath the veneer of manners and etiquette lies a bitter seething malice. Striving for social supremacy the two women battle to out-charm each other as they vie for the position of 'toast of the town'. Starring Prunella Scales (TV's Fawlty Towers), Geraldine McEwan (The Magdalene Sisters) and Nigel Hawthorne (The Madness of King George), adapted from the stories of E.F.Benson.

The rest is a delight from start to finish. Geraldine McEwan's Lucia, Nigel Hawthorne's Georgie and Prunella Scales' Mapp are three of the best characters ever created on television. The interplay between them is toe-curling and yet totally hilarious. I can never understand why this hasn't been repeated over and over again on TV like Fawlty Towers. It's also a delight to see the setting for Tilling, which positively glows, and the gentle 1930s life it depicts will have you yearning for those times. This is something you will be able to watch over and over again.
television series wax so lyrical and lament so strongly
for great programs of the past, watch and enjoy this series.
The acting is superb, the location is gorgeous, the whole project is faithful to the book and the characters in it.
As with the P.G.Woodhouse books, this series's characters are all outrageous, over the top and immensly loveable.
The whole make believe world grows seemlessly and your enjoyment is the better for it.
In todays cynical world this is pure escapism, to an age that never really existed (but we wish it had).... Wonderful
Geraldine McEwan, Nigel Hawthorne and Prunella Scales must
have had a wonderful time making this series,
they all shine and their enthusiasm is infectious.
Mapp & Lucia are amazing characters and you will get totally involved in their lives.Which one will be your favourite? It can change from time to time as both are complex human women with good and bad traits.
No matter how often I watch it I find something new to laugh at or feel sorry about for the residents of lovely Tilling.
Subtle, witty and very very funny.
A total delight :)
