Who is your least favourite character?

Post by Duckegg » Tue Apr 16, 2013 7:44 am

Yeah. Strange one. And I may get some stick for creating this topic but it would be interesting to find out who of the characters you like the least.
I would have to say, without a shadow of a doubt that Neville Hope is my least favourite character throughout the entire series.
Don't get me wrong, I think Kev Whatley does a fantastic job and plays the character perfectly, but the miserable bugger just winds me up.
I think it's a testament to the show that I almost look upon the characters as real people. And being that I'm probably an Oz type of bloke, then Nev just rubs me up the wrong way.
From the first introduction to the last he's got a face like a squeezed lemon.
And he cant reverse park worth shit!
Ever noticed what Dennis says when he staggers out of the car after Nev's bashed it?
I'm sure he says:
"Ahhhh man you've bashed the turn light!"
Haha what's the turn light!!!

"ye knaa wor Norman's got the spray shop on Westgate road? He'll have that knocked oot and sprayed by 12 o'clock. Nae more than fifty pund. A guarentee it!"

Yup, Naffin Nev for me too. His codependency on Brenda is just total cringe. Mind, he stood up to McGowan right enough. Bloody lunatic thing to do but worth a treble schnapps, surely ?!
Kevin Whately's portrayel of Neville Hope was 'magic !' The character was written to perfection too. Hang on, they all bloody were !!!

I think Dennis says...."You've bashed all the wing in man..."

Good post actually, as not many fans, me included like saying..'I don't like him/her...'
I for one, never got to liking Vera.

The main reason I see for trying to get Dennis back to the UK, was because he was having a cracking time with Dagmar, and she didn't like it. So, she drags him back, makes his life a misery and he ends up we nowt!

Aye! She's got a lot to answer for that Vera like. Still, tidy bit of tackle. She might not have had the bristles or strong thighs of Dagmar but at least she wouldn't have had hairy pits.

Neville's just a pain in the arse though.
I find myself watching episodes and shouting at the TV: "Ahhhh piss off man Neville you duck egg!"

Sometimes i wonder about Moxey.. generally he is ok apart from his tendency to break the law with Fire!! just seems that he always has to come across trouble sometimes.. i didnt like that he had been a bad lad in the start of series 2.. thought he could have been in a different situation myself..

Well, seeing as the situation is vacant, I'm gonna rubbish Alan.

He's the one who took Vera away from our Den, seducing her with all his fancy supermarket talk & flash car. Then, when it comes down to it, he can't even fix wor Kevin's bike, and presumably buggers off as soon as one of the checkout girls flashes him a wee bit of thigh.

I mean, what is he a Blimmer or something?, makes me FURIOUS.

Mox is always in one sticky situation or another prior to meeting up with the lads. I don't mind that he'd escaped from HMP in the lead up to the second series because it makes for a few hillarious scenes when he dashes off out of nowhere. And ofcourse a couple of comedy names.
