* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Patricia Routledge, the actress who plays Hyacinth, is an acclaimed stage actor in a variety of genres. But watching ''Hetty Wainthropp Investigates'' where she plays a very canny detective, can be most '''uncanny'''. Especially since they seem to wear the same sorts of hats...
** Clive Swift, who plays Richard, also plays King Arthur's adoptive father in John Boorman's ''Film/{{Excalibur}}''. He also played [[MeanBrit Major Callender]] in Creator/DavidLean's film of ''Literature/APassageToIndia''
** Josephine Tewson's previous work included assorted supporting roles in sketches on ''Series/TheTwoRonnies''. Long after ''Keeping Up Appearances'' ended its run, she was cast as Lucinda Davenport on ''Series/LastOfTheSummerWine'', which, coincidentally, was also created and written by Roy Clarke.
** This also applies to Mary Millar, who played Madame Giry in the original cast of ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' and Mrs. Potts on the London cast of ''Theatre/BeautyAndTheBeast''.
** Before he was cast as Emmet, David Griffin previously played Clive Dempster in ''Series/HiDeHi''.
** Trevor Bannister, a.k.a. Mr. Lucas on ''Series/AreYouBeingServed'' appears in the season 4 episode "Angel Gabriel Blue", playing a salesman selling kitchen tables to Hyacinth and later becomes a love interest to Rose. Amusingly, Bannister also co-starred on ''Last of the Summer Wine'' as Toby Mulberry Smith, acting alongside fellow ''AYBS'' alumnus Frank Thornton (Captain Peacock), who played Herbert "Truly" Truelove.
** Norman Lovett, a.k.a. Holly on ''Series/RedDwarf'', appears in the season 1 episode, "The Charity Shop", playing Mr. Duxbury, a man whose mother becomes engaged to Daddy.
** In addition to his work on ''Keeping Up Appearances'' and ''Last of the Summer Wine'', creator and writer Roy Clarke also created and wrote for ''Series/OpenAllHours''.
