Go To

Tim Brooke-Taylor

  • Butt-Monkey: Tim gets hurt and picked on much more than Bill and Graeme. (This was probably due to his actor being the only cast member who wasn't also writing the series.)
  • Camp Straight: Although the 'straight' part is debatable.
  • Catchphrase: "I'm a teapot!" whenever he is panicking.
  • Chew Toy: Is constantly getting hurt.
  • Cross Dresser: Frequently.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: Along with his Union jack waistcoat, Tim wears Union Jack boxers and socks.
  • Advertisement:
  • Inelegant Blubbering: Has a habit of bursting into tears with little to no warning.
  • Patriotic Fervor: His patriotism is played up in the later series, including him wearing his Union Jack waistcoat, obsessing about getting an OBE from the Queen, and making patriotic speeches to "Land Of Hope And Glory" in the background.

Graeme Garden


Bill Oddie

  • Adorkable: Particularly when he panics.
  • Comedic Sociopath: The most prone to violence out of the three of them.
  • Corpsing: The worst offender.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Frequently.
  • Pet the Dog: Even though he is often mean to Tim, Bill is always quick to reassure him when he gets upset, as seen in "The Baddies", where he comforts his crying friend.
  • '70s Hair
