I'd have to go with Mary Millar also. She was very funny! Shirley Stelfox also seemed to be quite a bit older, or at least looked to be.
Sad that Mary Millar passed away, I really enjoyed her work.
I'd have said much the same, yet, according to their respective wiki pages, Mary Millar was born five years before Shirley Stelfox. In any case, the character seemed to suit Mary better. In the first series it always stretched credibility that Rose was meant to be so kittenish when played by Shirley. Through no fault of hers, Shirley's Rose came across as a bit of a sad crone. She was meant by the dialog to be younger than both Daisy and Hyacinth.
Mary Millar got it just about right from the wardrobe and voice to the wriggly walk that hinted at inebriation or something else. I'm just finding out today that she'd died so shortly after the show wrapped up.
