Did You Know?

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 »

Hyacinth inisist's that all things be simply the best & her show IS!, 7 August 2001
Author: Wolf (alphaspace) from Baltimore, Maryland

All words fail to adequately describe our Hyacinth. To say she is a totally consumed, self important, myopic social climber is to be meek in one's definition. But our Hyacinth is also sweet in her own odd way. Hyacinth honestly wants to do good by and for all but she just wants to be seen be all the right people while in the midst of doing it. Her friends love her despite the fact that Hyacinth requires her friends to be long suffering and, selfless in their love of her. Hyacinth's son Sheridan who is suspected to be totally gay to everyone but her while off at University calls home constantly to his doting mommy and cash cow dad. She makes the post man, the power & light dude, tradesmen, heck all visitors to her home go through tons of changes like remove their shoes at the door. Hyacinth was just like my mother so I love her. Hyacinths family was awesome ranging from her one sister whose husband is a cross dressing turf accountant to Daisy whose husband is a Big bone idle man with a great heart and, a car thats s joke.

This is a awesome show from the UK and, the best imported show we here in the US have ever been graced with. If you love laughing till your sides hurt this is the show you must have.
