Performance grossly inappropriate to the characters. Highpitched male voices, females reduced to a gloomy drone.

I wouldn't cut anything from the story; the book is a marvellous piece of work and one of my all-time favourites. I would cut the narrator.
Margery Allingham must be spinning in her grave
