Doris Hare, MBE (1 March 1905 – 30 May 2000) was a Welsh actress, singer, dancer and comedienne, active in New York and London, as well as Scotland, she is best known for being the second actress to portray Mrs Mabel "Mum" Butler in the popular sitcom On the Buses alongside Reg Varney.


Hare was born in Bargoed, Glamorgan. Her parents had a portable theatre in South Wales and it seemed inevitable that she would become a part of it, making her debut at the age of three in Current Cash and appearing in juvenile troupes all over Britain as a child, before going solo as 'Little Doris Hare', appearing in music hall, variety, cabaret, revues and pantomimes. One of five, her brother, Bertie Hare and her sisters Betty Hare and Winifred Hare Braemer were also actors and performers

In 1930, the actress toured in The Show's the Thing, taking the part made famous by Gracie Fields. In 1932 she appeared in the West End in Noël Coward's show Words and Music, alongside John Mills. In 1936 she made her Broadway debut in Night Must Fall. During the war she joined Evelyn Laye to put on a revue for the troops and compered Shipmate's Ashore the BBC General Forces Programme, for the Merchant Navy, earning her the MBE in 1941.

In 1963 she joined the Royal Shakespeare Company and in 1965 joined the National Theatre at the Old Vic. She acted in plays by Shakespeare, Shaw, Pinero and Pinter.

Having turned down the role of Ena Sharples in Coronation Street in 1960, Hare did play Alice Pickens in the series during 1969. She was due to marry Albert Tatlock, but the wedding never took place.

That same year Hare came to national attention in the role of Mrs Butler in On the Buses, taking over the part from Cicely Courtneidge in the second series of the ITV comedy. The series ran until 1973 and spawned three spin-off films On the Buses (1971), Mutiny on the Buses (1972) and Holiday on the Buses (1973) in which Hare recreated her small-screen role. The cast also performed a stage version of the popular series in Vancouver, Canada, in 1988.

In 1974 Hare spent a year in the West End farce No Sex Please, We're British and made her final stage appearance, aged 87, at the London Palladium alongside John Mills in a tribute to Evelyn Laye.

Hare won a Variety Club of Great Britain Special Award for her contributions to show business in 1982. She died at Denville Hall the actors retirement home in Northwood, London in 2000, aged 95.

Three of the company's buses are wrecked due to Stan's negligent bus driving, which means Stan (Reg Varney), Jack (Bob Grant) and Inspector Blake (Stephen Lewis) are sacked. Stan and Jack get a job as bus crew at a Pontins holiday camp in Prestatyn, North Wales, only to find that Blakey has also got a job at the camp, as security inspector. Stan invites the family to stay (using his staff discount) whilst he proceeds to chat up the guests and staff. Tight fisted Arthur refuses to pay the train fare, instead relying on his ever present motorcycle and sidecar to take the Butlers to the camp. They meet Stan on the road, who accidentally forces them into a kerb causing all the luggage to land in a river and all the family's clothes are ruined.

Bus driver Stan Butler (Reg Varney) agrees to marry Susy (Janet Mahoney), much to the anguish of the rest of the family. Arthur loses his job so Stan, as the main money earner, agrees to delay the wedding while teaching Arthur to drive a bus. Meanwhile there is mutiny at the depot when the Depot Manager installs a new radio control system in all the buses (borrowing an idea previously used in the episode "Radio Control"). Jack (Bob Grant) tampers with the radio system and crosses the wires with the police frequency and several misunderstandings ensue. Blakey is then issued with a van to follow the buses around their routes, but when Stan and Jack accidentally cause a fire in the bus depot, the van is crushed between two buses in the ensuing chaos. The fire highlights the inadequacies of the depot's fire fighting equipment, which the general manager orders to be upgraded. Blakey stages a fire drill with the new equipment, but it goes spectacularly wrong when the foam machine goes out of control.
