Publisher's Summary

It's Christmas and the Ladies of Letters are busy stuffing homemade turkey sausages, adding hot pepper to their mulled wine and giving each other totally unsuitable Christmas presents.
Vera has just returned from a festive trip to the Holy Land, where she has purchased Mary Mother of Jesus Jam and realised that the only universal religion is shopping. Then she and her family face homelessness when a heartless bank buys up The Bothy for redevelopment.
Irene, meanwhile, is inundated with family visiting for the Festive Season and is annoyed that Vera seems too caught up in her own concerns to consider hers. But Irene has to hold back on her grievances when Vera's daughter, Karen, finds a lump - not as Vera originally thought, in her Nigella-style Christmas gravy - but in her breast.
As family descend on them both, pressure mounts and Christmas chaos inevitably ensues in this 11th series of the radio comedy. Prunella Scales and Anne Reid star in this fractious festive series of the popular BBC Radio 4 comedy.

Not quite the same without Patricia Routledge!

I adore the series, but while the story is very good, I missed Ms. Routledge's wonderful Vera Smalls. Not the best in the series, but as it seems to be the last,I would recommend it as you will hear the end of storylines that have been woven through the series.

I do so wish there were more!

Missing Patricia Routledge

I do enjoy listening to this series but am missing the original cast. But it's still well worth the money.
