Unhappy Poor Richard . . .RIP

Clive Swift, who gained fame as the henpecked hubby Richard Bucket on "Keeping Up Appearances" has passed away at age 82.


At least he doesn't have to listen to Hyancinth's yammering anymore . . .

Just imagine if the character had died on the show. Hyacinth swanning around in the most "sophisticated" (aka expensive) black outfits, with a huge hat and a black veil that keeps obstructing her vision so she keeps stumbling into things; telling everybody over and over how incredibly bereaved she is, while setting up the fussiest and most involved, overdone wake and funeral the town has ever seen. I can just hear her trying to get the Archbishop on the phone for the service and insisting he must know who she is because she's invited him to all of her "candlelight suppers" (that he never attended).
When you start at zero, everything's progress.

He won't have to give Sheridan any more money.
This site proves Corey Taylor right. Man really is a "four letter word."

May he (the man) rest in peace. v_v

And may he (the character) at long last enjoy some peace.

Oh, he was so good at acting put-upon and yet impassive at the same time. So tempted to put in a "kicked the bucket" joke but I won't. You'll be missed, Clive.
My mere existence in your field of vision doesn't entitle you to my attention.
