Helen Lloyd brings to vivid life the English seaside village of Tilling and its competitive, sometimes mean-spirited residents. Listeners meet Miss Mapp, who sees everyone and everything from her centrally located home--and rooftop. Lloyd brings out the contradictions in each character and lets listeners decide for themselves what to make of them. Instantly recognizable are: Mapp's nemesis, braggart Godiva Plaistow, whose arguments are legendary; the attention-seeking vicar, who humorously uses either an Old English or Scottish accent; and competitive golfing and drinking buddies Major Benji and Captain Puffin. Lloyd is at her best recounting the duel that almost happened. Could it have been over Mapp? This congenial slice-of-life picture of the 1920s continues for six parts and is based on actual people and places. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
