* CreatorBacklash: Patricia Routledge does not approve of the ''Young Hyacinth'' prequel special, as she felt the BBC was running out of ideas by revisiting old programmes. Kerry Howard, who played Hyacinth in the special, defended it by saying that it's not a remake or reboot of the show, but a side story that rounds out the character.

* 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''.
