The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir

A Battle of Britain comedy of manners with a mostly female cast, many of whom slot neatly into village types with a rather reassuring predictability, whips up a comforting nostalgic confection. From the village map on the end-papers to the Dickensian surnames to the night-time prowls sussing out the truth, this epistolary romp is much more than brain-candy.
