Please feel free to comment on my review.

Series 2 of ‘Keeping Up Appearances’ begins with the introduction of a new character in the series. David Griffin makes his first appearance as Emmet, Elizabeth’s brother. Emmet has recently divorced and is staying with his sister for a while to sort out things. He also happens to be a talented musician.

Hyacinth is shocked at first to see Emmet, as she thinks he’s a ‘strange man’ staying with Elizabeth during the previous night and he was draped in a towel when going out to fetch the milk. Hyacinth acquires Richard’s assistance so as to find out what is going on with Elizabeth and her ‘strange man’.

It was funny when Hyacinth discovers that Emmet is actually Elizabeth’s brother and that he’s a classically trained musician as well as in charge of the musical operatic society. Hyacinth tries to win her way with Emmet by singing at him. He gets terrified of her that becomes recurring in the series.

Mary Millar also makes her first appearance as Rose in the series, taking over from Shirley Stelfox in Series 1. Mary delivers a new energy to Rose’s character, which was both exciting and amusing to watch. I like how she bounces off well with Onslow and Daisy, whenever she’s talking of her love life.

I liked that first scene between Onslow and Daisy. Daisy finds it a beautiful day but Onslow is too lazy to get up out of bed. Onslow, Daisy and Rose soon drive over to meet Hyacinth after Daddy’s gone missing. Hyacinth tries to get rid of them when she’s entertaining Elizabeth and Emmet at her house.

‘Series 2, Episode 1’ rating – 8/10
