Our heroines Jump the Shark

Ladies of Letters began as a subtle and typically British bit of fluff--correspondence between two older women who become fiercely competitive and occasionally openly hostile even as their friendship deepens. Any lover of British comedy is going to be a sucker for the two principal readers--the incomparable Prunella Scales and the divine Patricia Routledge.

The authors of the series, however, seem to have lost their way in this installment, providing a series of situations that I found preposterous and aggravating rather than endearing and odd--as the previous tales have been.

I'm going to listen to the next installment and hope for the best. If the situations are, once again, bizarre and implausible, I will say farewell to the Ladies and re-visit the brilliant, earlier installments which I consider to be timeless gems.
