Hyacinth & Richard Bucket

A Brief Visit into the Life of a Proper English Gentlewoman


The characters in my story are based on those found in the “Keeping up Appearances” BBC comedy. The series ran from 1990-1993 and again in 1995. A total of 44 episodes were made. This includes 4 Christmas specials.

I have used the show to build what I hope you will find to be real lives of real people. You will read about what I think might have taken place before and after the show ended.

If you end up feeling you know Hyacinth, Richard or even Sheridan better, I have succeeded. Thanks, and enjoy my story…


You might not remember me; I was the fellow living in the house down the street from Hyacinth and Richard Bucket, beside Cedric and Isobel Barker-Finch. You probably saw me walking my dog past her house. I lived there for a number of years, until I was transferred back to Canada in the early 1990s.
