Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced ‘bouquet’) is a character with few, if any, saving graces. Her pompous, self-serving attitude makes life miserable for all around her. She goes to incredible lengths in her quest for perfection. Hers is a spick-and-span house. Her downtrodden husband, Richard, acts as chauffeur in their immaculately kept car. Their son has a superior name, Sheridan. Even the empty milk bottles sparkle on the doorstep after their obligatory rinse in the dishwasher. In marked contrast to Hyacinth’s meticulously ordered life, however, the rest of her family are as common as muck and can always be guaranteed to show her up. Can she ever live down the disgrace?
