  • I always felt I related to Molly Sugden, she reminded me of my own Grandmother, not the act, but the person beneath. It is a great pity that we have lost Mrs Hutchinson and Mrs Slocome in the same year. I loved watching Are you being Served? as a child. There has not been much made since to replace it!

    I always felt I related to Molly Sugden, she reminded me of my own Grandmother, not the act, but the person beneath. It is a great pity that we have lost Mrs Hutchinson and Mrs Slocome in the same year. I loved watching Are you being Served? as a child. There has not been much made since to replace it!

  • Seven years after the end of Are You Being Served?, five members of the original cast – including Sugden – came together to appear in Grace & Favour, where the staff of Grace Brothers are left an old manor house in the country, which they have to live in to keep. This was titled Are You Being Served? Again! when shown in the United States. It lasted two seasons, until 1993. Also in the early 1990s, she played Mrs. White in the second season of the British game show Cluedo. Other appearances at this time included Just William, Oliver’s Travels and Dennis the Menace. In 2003, Sugden appeared in an episode of The Bill and also appeared (as herself) in an episode of the comedy sketch show Little Britain. In 2002 a tribute programme called Celebrating Mollie Sugden: An Are You Being Served? Special aired on American PBS stations featuring several members of the cast of Are You Being Served? Molly Sugden died at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford on 1 July 2009 of unspecified heart failure. She was cremated. Her final public appearance was at her Are You Being Served? co-star Wendy Richard’s funeral four and a half months previously.

    Mollie Sugden is considered one of Britain's top comedy actresses, and a quick look at her impressive list of credits certainly adds more than a little justification to that claim. For many years now Mollie seems to have played everyone's mum. She played Jimmy Clitheroe's mother in Just Jimmy, Terry Scott's mum in Son of the Bride, Christopher Blake's mum in That's My Boy, Nerys Hughes' mum in the Liver Birds, Robin Nedwell's mum in Doctor In Charge, and John Alderton's mum in My Wife Next Door. Added to that are substantial roles in Hugh and I, Up Pompeii and the world's best known soap opera Coronation Street. But it is as Mrs Slocombe in the sitcom Are You Being Served? that Molly Sugden has left her most enduring mark on the consciousness of the television audience.

             But things go a bit awry and the station is prematurely launched into
