Cast and Crew

Da Mudda : Mother of both the above. Brutal, violent Nazi with a heart of gold.

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?)
