| Patricia Routledge as an all-round good person
I knew Patricia Routledge was so good that (for me) she makes Helen Bucket (Yes, she insists it's pronounced as in bouquet.) painful to watch. I generally avoided "Keeping Up Appearances," until recently, hoping some day to see Ms. Routledge in a role I could enjoy more.

I'd already enjoyed the Masterpiece Theater mysteries, so I jumped at the chance to see Ms. Routledge in what was then a new series. She's wonderful, in a good, solid cast that tackles tough subjects with humor, sensitivity, and tough-minded goodness (Hetty). It's been years, so I don't remember the name of the teenage neighbor guy who she recruits as her assistant with her detective work. He's well cast, and works well with Ms. Routledge and other regulars and guest cast.

I really wish there were more of this series, and that I could see it all again. I hope Ms. Routledge is doing well.
