Mapp and Lucia, 2014 style.
It may not be as determinedly camp as the excellent 80s adaptation (with Geraldine McEwan and Prunella Scales) but it has... Miranda Richardson, Anna Chancellor and Steve Pemberton. It has Frances Barber (albeit briefly). It has superb sets, costumes and supporting cast. Most importantly it has all EF Benson's very best pithy bitchiness. What more do you want?
Catch it if you can! It's simply marvellous.
