  1. A national treasure. Why hasn’t she been made a dame? Instead of honouring people like Joan Collins, why not Patricia Routledge?

  2. She is a great actress and having watched her series on Beatrix Potter, she is also a great narrator. Shame on the BBC for not having shown the series and good for Channel 4 for taking it instead. I say: Privatise the BBC. It is a pointless load of hot air and Patricia Routledge is right to urge us all to turn off.

  3. I agree with both of you, she’s an absolute treasure and a real legend, they don’t make them like her anymore.
    The BBC seem to let actors of her class slip under the table, why they pander to the Boy Georges of the world.

  4. Patricia Routledge transcends BBC & worthless ‘royal’ accolades. Patricia lives on through her diehard fans. She has embedded herself in our psyche!

  5. So glad you are championing this National Treasure who is most deserving of a Damehood. She is a superb actress with great comic timing but also the ability to create pathos as well.
    She also had a great singing voice. I saw her in the National Theatre production of Carousel – I loathe the musical but she was fantastic -the best thing in it.

  6. They honoured Jimmy Savile and they didn’t honour Patricia Routledge. We all know what you call ‘The Club’ does and because of her idiosyncratic lifestyle they passed her over. It is a bloody disgrace.

  7. My favourite “Mrs Bucket”quote. ” Oh hello dear I was just passing one of our telephones when it occurred to me that I hadn’t spoken to you for ever such a long time, then I couldn’t find your number because our new Mercedes outside was blocking the light”.

  8. I prefer robert Redford myself. Paricia seemed a tad….hammy, no?

    Ps My wife and I adored her in The Postman! (1962)!
    r.i.p. prince of course
