The field of British comedies has always seemingly been populated by snobs, but few were ever as pronounced as Hyacinth Bucket (which she insists is pronounced "bouquet"). Played by Patricia Routledge, Hyacinth is a character with few, if any, saving graces. Her pompous, self-serving, social-climbing attitude makes life miserable for all around her. Long-suffering husband Richard, played by Clive Swift with quiet resignation, gets the brunt of much of her scolding and chastisement, if he steps out of line.
