TV Young Hyacinth (BBC-1 2 Sep 2016, Kerry Howard, Mark Addy) Published 2 years ago on August 26, 2016 Part of the BBC’s Sitcom Season celebrations Young Hyacinth is a prequel to Roy Clarke’s Keeping Up Appearances taking us back to the 1950’s when Hyacinth was a young woman living in a crowded canal cottage with her sisters Rose, Violet and Daisy and their Dad. Even at this young stage in her life Hyacinth is keen to better her standing in life. The sisters have their own dreams and ambitions, Violet dreams of wealth, Daisy dreams of the great outdoors and Rose dreams of film stars and boys; whilst Hyacinth dreams of the day she’ll have matching china. Oh and how she wishes that her darling Daddy, currently scraping by as a part-time brush salesman with a tricycle and a drink problem, could be more like ex-Squadron Leader Cooper-Smith for whom she works as a maid. Early glimpses into the lives of established characters are always interesting and this one will be no exception. Hyacinth was built on the iconic performance of Patricia Routledge and whether anybody else can inhabit her we will wait and see. production details UK / BBC One – BBC Studios / 1×30 minute episode / Broadcast Friday 2 September 2016 at 9.30pm Writer: Roy Clarke / Executive Producer: Gareth Edwards / Producer: Sarah Hitchcock / Director: Sandy Johnson cast Kerry Howard as Hyacinth Debra Stephenson as Dulcie Tony Gardner as Claude Mark Addy as Daddy Katherine Pearce as Daisy Katie Redford as Rose Thomas Pickles as Eric Tamla Kari as Violet Tim Downie as Freddy James Wrighton as William BBCDebra StephensonGareth EdwardsKerry HowardMark AddyRoy ClarkeSandy JohnsonSitcomsTamla KariTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes10 hours ago Your Worst Nightmare: Behind the Barn (S5EP8 ID Sat 23 Feb 2019) Behind the Barn: When 20-year-old college student Kristy Ray is kidnapped from her home in rural Tippah County, Miss., in...
