This biting comic drama, adapted by Steve Pemberton, celebrates and lampoons the snobberies of small-town life and stars an acclaimed ensemble cast, led by Miranda Richardson. The series fizzes with all the waspish wit and murderous gentility of EF Benson's stories. Over the course of a 1930s summer, the scheming Miss Elizabeth Mapp and the haughty Mrs Emmeline 'Lucia' Lucas jockey for social supremacy in Tilling. This quaint English town may seem tranquil on the surface, but its eccentric inhabitants exist in a world seething with gossip and petty one upmanship.
