The Fantastic Mrs Fox



And so, farewell the flirtatious and utterly camp "Mrs Fox" - inspiration for many a drag act - aka Patricia Cundell (15th January 1920 - 14th February 2015).

Now there's only two original cast members from Dad's Army left (Pike and the Reverend)...

  1. I unfortunately am not familiar with the show or Pamela Cunliffe as Mrs Fox. But how can you not love a lady who can pull off that fox creme stole with that white hat!

    1. Dad's Army - an "institution" over here, endlessly repeated - was so very, very British that I doubt it could ever succeed "over the pond". Mrs Fox was merely one of its highlights - and yes, we could only hope to wear a hat'n'stole combo with such panache! Jx

  2. Hello Jon,

    She was always being slipped an extra sausage!

    A fabulous character actress, Pamela Cundell played the wily Mrs Fox perfectly. Dad's Army had a cast of National Treasures.

    1. The fact that someone has the temerity to re-make it for the big screen leaves me shuddering. As much as I do love Alison Steadman, Bill Nighy et al, it will be a pointless exercise - and Catherine bloody Zeta-Jones is in it? Please, no... Jx
