Hyacinth Bucket (whose name she insists is pronounced "bouquet") continually looks for opportunities to climb the social ladder, though she's wedged on a rung just below her sister Violet (whose house has a swimming pool, sauna, and room for a pony) and just above her working class sisters Daisy and Rose. Hyacinth's passion for flawless entertaining unnerves her neighbor Elizabeth, who is often invited to the Bucket home for coffee. Elizabeth's divorced brother Emmet, who also lives next door to the Buckets, tries to avoid Hyacinth because she breaks into song in his presence in the hope he'll cast her in one of his "little theater" musical productions.

Hyacinth and Richard live in Waney Edge at 117 Blossom Avenue, Eddleton, West Midlands LK6 4PQ. Both the property name and number can be seen above the garage throughout the series, while the street name is visible on the Major's candlelight supper invitation that Hyacinth is filling out in the show's opening credits. The town and postal code (for the Major) are also visible on the envelope containing the invitation (although both are fictitious), and count for the Buckets as well as the Major who lives around the corner from them. West Midlands Police is seen on the uniforms of two police officers in a season three episode, while Hyacinth remarks about being seen as the "queen of the West Midlands social circuit" in another. The series was filmed in Coventry, West Midlands. The Buckets' house was filmed in the Binley Woods area of Coventry. However, they do often film around the Warwickshire area. In one show, the Buckets visit a hotel in Kenilworth, Chesford Grange. See more »
What discourages me about looking for your father is we usually find him.

During the end credits, we see a table set for a posh dinner. When all credits have been shown, Hyacinth is shown rearranging a fork and a spoon and then putting a name plate on the table. As the camera zooms in on it, you can see that it reads "Harold Snoad" and the words "Produced & Directed by" appear above it (plus a copyright notice below it). See more »
I watch this program on PBS all the time!! It is so funny!!! Many times it is much funnier than other American sitcoms on the networks. What makes it so funny is Hyacinth's character; she is both believeable and UNbelievable at the same time!! I recommend this show to everyone who wants a laugh!
