You know, I just might have to put this on my list of "fanfics to write."

LOL, just catching up on threads and this one cracked me up. It reminds me how much I wish someone would do something similar with "Keeping Up Appearances." I read somewhere that Patricia Routledge wouldn't ever consider reprising Hyacinth, but I think it would be funny if Richard and Hyacinth moved to the country, and Sheridan and Tarquin moved in as the new resident snobby neighbors. But then again, as with AYBS stars who have passed on making any remake seem pointless, I can't see anything KUA without the...er, popular, Rose. (That would be Rose#2, the late Mary Millar.)

I must say, the idea of the AYBS offspring had me ROFL...since the only people on AYBS I can recall having kids were the canteen manageress (whose 2 year olf needed to go to the potty,) and possibly old Grainger (who got the girl in Haberdashery "into trouble".)
There would be more "oops, I didn't know I had a baby" children running around than on "All My Children".

I love the idea of a butch Humphries jr. and a flamboyant Lucas jr...I say that the surprise Slocombe jr. would have to be from Mr. Moulterd. (Not Mavis, of course.) Maurice Moulterd jr, anyone?

And then, Mr. Spooner can swoop in, having revealed that his pop stardom caused Miss Belfridge to suddenly become interested in him, and they married and had 10 little Spooners, but later she also left him for Mr. Prentice (sp?), formerly of of tools and DIY.

That Prentice certainly does attract them. He must have all the right tools.

I realize this is a very old thread, but what if...

Wilburforce had a love child with the lady "behind the bandstand at 5:30 to 'pitch a little woo'" and then had a second child after he and Mavis 'turned over the same way' on some warm spring night?

The two offspring, one male and one female of the opposite sex (to be clear), later met not knowing their common origins... and being of different ages by 10 or 15 years...

...I'll let your imaginations run with that for a while!

Here is my idead for a G&F Show.
If you take into consideration the passing of all the stars except mavis, Jessica, and Mr. Rumbold.
The show can star the 2 women, Rumbold can pop in from time to time (since I am sure he is retired).
Since we know Mavis would get Mr Humpries portion of the estate, and Jessica got Capt Peacock's.
The rest of the cast, will star us!!!
Imagine the possible antics that ensue as we men chase the women (I'm going for Mavis),
the women due their best to keep us all in line, and each of us goes through our growing pains of living on the farm.

In the short time I have been in these forums, I am sure we as a collective could come up with some good shows, new costumes, and a whole lot of fun.......I know it would come true, but I can dream can't I?

Of course we would have to recruit the three remaining actors to fullfill thier roles.
We can do various up to date versions of some of the classic AYBS antics, and if no station will carry the show, we just open up a youtube channel, and roll.

We would have to draw straws for the roles. We could cast the rest of us as guests. To be fair the roles would be recast frequently.

Show background.
Due to age Mr Rumbold has completely retired. Mavis is stuck working the farm alone, since Jessica is too busy flirting around with richer, older men. Jess still has plenty of cash, since she has a well to do suitor, but Mavis does not have much money left. Jessica is trying to buy Mavis out of the business, with only a small offer. Not anywhere enough to live off of, and part of the deal requires Mavis to leave the Manor, the only home she has ever known. In desperation she puts out an ad looking for investors, and such to help fund the Manor.

Well this would be my role..

Since I am an American, and in real life I was a real estate agent for many years, I could come in as a real estate investor, who thinks he can make a profit making the Manor a bed and breakfast type hotel. However I am wrong, and wind up finding out the whole dollar to the pound math was wrong, and now I have only a pittance of money left,and am forced to make this thing work.

Since I am an American, there is bound to be enough cultural, language and other differences that cause chaos and confusion.
I go "wide eyed" when ever someone makes a reference to their cat as "My pussy". etc..


Since I feel like I own the place I choose the Chef's old bedroom as my own, not knowing Mavis still sleeps there. She will come in ready to go to bed and surprise me as she enters.
She tells me she has had problems sleeping after the passing of Mr. Humpries, not having someone to sleep with.
(At this point our writing crew can determine whether or not I pursue her, she pursues me, etc. Either way, she decides to educate me in proper British eitiquette, and the farm life)
Note: I know nothing of the farm life, so I can have my own segments with milking the cow and such with hilarity!


As tribute to the old crew Mavis can talk about the times she had with her last bunk mate (Humpries) showing some old AYBSA clips of her and him on occassion throughout the seasons.
She can also relay various stories that Mr Humpries has shared over the years, (flashing back to the original show)




Ok...your turn.....What role would you play, and how could you relate it to the original cast?
