The accents may be posh, but the battle for social supremacy is down and dirty in this classic British series set in 1920s provincial England. The indomitable Elizabeth Mapp (Prunella Scales, FAWLTY TOWERS) reigns as Queen Bee in the seaside village of Tilling-until elegant Emmeline 'Lucia' Lucas (Geraldine McEwan, AGATHA CHRISTIE'S MARPLE) moves to town for the summer and decides to stay. As arbiters of good taste and propriety, they are unchallenged by all but each other. On battlegrounds such as art, marriage, local politics, European connections, and a certain coveted lobster recipe, these high-minded adversaries clash in contests rich in intrigue, scandal, and antic comedy. Based on the beloved novels by E.F. Benson and starring British acting icons McEwan, Scales, and Nigel Hawthorne (YES, MINISTER), MAPP & LUCIA: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION serves up all 10 episodes of the comedy classic.
