Slthough it is much easier to copy characters alreaddy fully rounded and alive, Mr Fraser-Sampson has done Mapp and Lucia lovers a big favour. Whil keeping the tenor and atmopshere of the original books, he hads given us fresh scenarios to treasure. I do hope he will feel he can continue? Time does not need to progress very fast. As far as I am concerned, Time can stand still in TIlling!
