    Alastair Davies 

Alastair Davies

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/davies_alistair_5853.jpg
Played By: Stephen Fry

The UK Prime Minister during the events of Live Another Day. He's generally supportive of James Heller's policies, even if his cabinet and party aren't.

Tropes

  • Deadpan Snarker: Does this quite a few times, particularly when Londoners are fleeing the city, which causes him to comment that there's no better way to get the populace to panic than by telling them there's nothing to panic about.
  • Expy: Though he physically somewhat resembles an older David Cameron, his relationship with Heller is more akin to that of Tony Blair to George W. Bush. He also looks like the fictional Prime Minister Jim Hacker.
  • Genre Blind: Being unfamiliar with the way Jack operates, he fails to realize that it is not a good idea to try and get involved in one of his covert missions. Justifiable since, as far as Davies knows, Jack is just some guy who went crazy and nearly caused a major incident four years previously.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: He secretly authorises an MI-5 hit on Jack Bauer and his team, jeopardising an operation to trace Margot Al-Harazi.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: To a certain extent. While his decisions tend to get in Jack's way, he does have somewhat valid reasons for making them, and immediately apologizes to Heller when Jack nearly gets screwed over.

    Caroline Fowlds 

Caroline Fowlds

Played By: Miranda Raison

One of Alastair Davies's chief advisers.

Tropes

  • Lady Macbeth: A mild example, but she pushes Davies into going around Heller and covertly monitoring Jack's attempt to contact Rask, which very nearly ends in total disaster.
  • Shout-Out: Her name is more than likely a reference to Yes, Minister actor Derek Fowlds.
  • The Silent Bob: Despite being seen with Davies in most of his appearances, the only time she ever got any actual dialogue was when persuading him to send MI-5 after Bauer.

    Louis Dalton 

Louis Dalton

Played By: Harry Van Gorkum

The UK's representative at the United Nations during Day 8.

Tropes

  • It's All About Me: Tries to use the "Special Relationship" as leverage to get Allison Taylor to spill the beans on what the Kamistan terrorists are doing, despite her being unwilling to tell any of the other delegates. It actually works, too.
