Film details


Lucia decides to settle in Tilling and buys a house called Grebe just outside the town. Georgie also resolves to move to Tilling permanently. Miss Mapp, now reinstated in her own home, tries all manner of subterfuge to discover Lucia's famed lobster recipe "Lobster à la Riseholme". Finally she sneaks into Lucia's kitchen and finds it. She is discovered there by Lucia, but they are suddenly caught up in a major flood when some nearby banks burst. They hastily up-end the large kitchen table and find themselves being carried off by the current of the flood, seen drifting out to sea by the Tilling inhabitants.
