Spelling differences[edit]

Seeing as this is about an English actress, I have modified some of the spelling to be of the English style, as per American and British English spelling differences. Sheeldz 12:34, 22 April 2007 (UTC)


Would it not be a good idea to indicate which character Scales is portraying from the image? I would do it myself, but I don't know enough about the person/television program to be able to do so. --Mas 18 dl 13:48, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Singing career ?[edit]

I found a cd for sale on eBay described as: "2 CD set of Rossin's The Thieving Magpie. Melodramma in two acts. Opera in English. Libretto by Giovanni Gherardini after La Pie vouleuse. Prunella Scales as the Magpie. Geoffrey Mitchell Choir. Philharmonia Orchestra. David Parry."

Does this mean Prunella Scales is also an opera singer? Or is the gazza in La Gazza Ladra a speaking part? 17:24, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

The gazza is only a speaking part, no singing there. 20:11, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

This section includes passages that are at variance from what I expect from a reasonably objective Wikipedia article. They have been written in an emotive and subjective style, viz 'Scales’ part in the melodrama is tiny but delightful' and '..under the baton of maestro David Parry in a romp of this work..'. Is this acceptable?rigour mortician 09:22, 20 May 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Soundofjura (talkcontribs)

Sybil Fawlty description[edit]

The description as "long suffering" seems inapt. She is rather callous, shrewish, demanding, authoritarian, and somewhat irrational in her expectations. Basil is frequently seen to be overwhelmed (and not very suited to multitasking) while she is just chatting. Yet rather than let him chat, or even complete a task, she chastises him to perform other tasks while complaining that he never finishes things. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wheelhouse (talkcontribs) 13:37, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Why is the in the category for Trotskyists?[edit]

I can't see anything to support this in the article. -- (talk) 11:16, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
