Author : Godlike observer of all things related to the Idle Hour pubs without actually being there all that much.
Nibs : Owner of the Idle Hour pubs and brother of the above. Not necessarily through choice.
Da Mudda : Mother of both the above. Brutal, violent Nazi with a heart of gold.
Ursula : Long-suffering partner of author. Questioning her will to live.
Bobbins : Servant stooge who miraculously endures the centuries. Yes, a bit like Baldrick.
Giles Coren : The very same. Nibs’s most favourite food writer. Cunningly absent in person.
Dan Laidler : Artist, musician, sage. Created the Idle Eye drawing above.
Timmy : A cat (small furry girl that lives in pub. Not Nib’s girlfriend. Or is it?)
