Take a Cruise on the QE2 with Hyacinth!
mwreview | Northern California, USA | 12/31/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This special holiday DVD of Keeping Up Appearances includes double length episodes that I do not think I've ever seen aired on my public broadcasting station. "Sea Fever" features Hyacinth and Richard on the famous QE2. Unbeknownst to Hyacinth, Onslow and Daisy win a contest to spend a cruise on the QE2 as VIP guests, enjoying all the things Hyacinth feels entitled to. When Hyacinth spots them, she assumes they must be stowaways and, with the reluctant but obedient Richard in tow, races around the ship to find them so she can protect them (well, Daisy at least) from the authorities. Viewers get to tour the ship with Hyacinth!

The other double length special also includes a treat. "Angel Gabriel Blue" does not really have a holiday atmosphere, but fans of Are You Being Served? will no doubt recognize Trevor Bannister who played the role of the popular Mr. Lucas. A Bannister bio is also available in Hyacinth's guest book on the disc.

The most Christmasy episode is "A Very Merry Hyacinth" where Richard, dressed like Father Christmas, gets drunk with Emmet and Elizabeth must take Richard's place as Father Christmas without Hyacinth knowing. The other episode is "Historical Pageant." The DVD includes monologues of Patricia Routledge's Kitty character from "Victoria Wood: As Seen on TV" from the early/mid 1980s. Her jokes are veeeery British and I can't comprehend 3/4 of them, but the character was definitely a precursor to Hyacinth Bucket. Cast bios are also included.

For those who would just like the holiday specials, this DVD is a great buy. If you are a big fan of the show, however, I highly recommend The Full Bouquet. It has this DVD plus 7 others with all the episodes and lots of extras.
The Bucket Lady is finally on DVD!

"Finally we can watch Hyacinth anytime, day or night! Includes 7 episodes not shown in US, outakes and more! A must have for all ages young & old. Now, when can we expect the next boxed set? I want them all! We never tire of the Bucket lady's candlelight suppers and social events! Especially loved the never before seen episodes of the Christmas specials!"
Great Dvd

"This is by far the funniest episodes of Keeping up appearances all put together. I bought this mainly for the christmas episode but I love the others as well."
