Keeping Up Appearances

She's the queen of sitcom snobbery, the suburban equivalent of Basil Fawlty and Captain Mainwaring. She's Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced you-know-how), whose candlelight suppers are the stuff of legend. Terrorising her neighbours and making life a misery for her long suffering husband Richard, Hyacinth is an unstoppable monster of pomposity - but with an Achilles heel in the form of her awfully common family. Can she climb the social ladder without being scuppered by her embarrassing clan?
