LONDON (Reuters) – British actress Mollie Sugden, best-known for her role as Mrs Slocombe in the television comedy series "Are You Being Served?," has died at the age of 86.
Her agent Joan Reddin told newspapers Sugden died on Wednesday after a long illness. "She was a lovely, lovely person. She was a great professional," Reddin said.
With her hair highly coiffed , Sugden played the bossy Mrs Slocombe throughout the run of the BBC's innuendo-laden Are You Being Served? between 1972 and 1985.
Re-runs of the show in the United States in the 1990s gained her a new audience overseas.
All of the stars from Are You Being Served are passing away. It’s one of my all time favorite shows! RIP Mrs. Slocombe!
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)
10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)

When I think of Mrs. Slocombe, I always think of her rainbow of hair colors not found in nature. That, and her Pussy. I'm talking about her cat! Get your mind out of the gutter.
