I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte
Mollie Sugden passed away. Not sure who she was?
I can't help but imagine she would've actually appreciated this.

Mrs Slocombe! (From "Are You Being Served?"). She also acted on "Coronation Street."
Oh, how sad. She was lots of fun. Mrs Slocombe was like a Mrs Malaprop, who also frequently made jokes about "her pussy[cat]." So I expect she'd approve of the captioning above.

I'd forgotten her stint on Coronation Street! She really was fun. And I really do suspect she'd approve of the lolcat captioning.

I loved her magical color-changing hair.

Yeah- though in fairness, considering her maturity when that show came out? DAMNED good long run to pass on at 75, imho.

Straight to hell, sir.
STRAIGHT to hell.

As if that weren't a foregone conclusion already?

I snickered. I think she would have too.
And now I want to watch about two hours of AYBS. Wah. I need a BBC fix, clearly; the other day it was Jeeves and Wooster.

Absolutely she would've.
It's pretty damned unlikely that anyone'd survive as long as she did in a show that had all the broad humour of vaudeville, without having a thick skin and a forgiving sense of humour of their own.
