Geraldine was indeed born to play Lucia.In the fullness of time she will be recalled as the redoubtable Lucas and viewers will forget she was ever involved in that embarrassing "Marple" series. M&L is an acquired taste,Benson's stuff grows on you.Performances by the principal actors are seemingly timeless and very rewatchable. Nigel Hawthorne must have had such fun bringing Georgie to life and how about the Major? After the owl and the pussycat went to sea we really got the best episode of the series.The return of Mapp was an incredibly hilarious highpoint. Despite the continuing tit for tat village nonsense,Lucia plans and executes the "taking of Tilling"-like a slender Bodicea.
I love Rye,it was pleasure renting the erstwhile domestic quarters attached to the old Customs House
