War between two provincial English ladies.
26 November 2006 | by perigrine63See all my reviews

The Best Thing Ever.

This is really a wonderful series about the battles and escapades of the 1930s British upper middle class. Follow the humorous escapades of Miss Elizabeth Mapp and Mrs. Emmeline ("Lucia") Lucas as they strive to become the social queen of Tilling's society. Based on the original stories by E.F. Benson, Mapp & Lucia will not leave you disappointed. If you haven't seen Mapp & Lucia yet, you will never know what you are missing.

A wonderful show for anybody wanting a good laugh, required viewing for any British drama fan.

10 stars.
