Having been re-watching all of Dad's Army from start to finish, my first thread idea came to mind in the form of 'hated characters in loved sitcoms'; something which comes to mind EVERY TIME I watch an episode of Dad's Army that features the Verger (Edward Sinclair) prominently. His "troublemaker" tendencies piss me off SO much, along with that irritating and self-satisfied gurn he has going on. He doesn't get enough of a comeuppance throughout the whole series as far as I'm concerned!
I just wondered what other people's hated characters/loved sitcoms were...
A couple of other mentions that find me reaching for the remote (or avoiding scenes with them altogether are:
- Jeffrey Fourmile (Norman Eshley) in 'George & Mildred' - what an insufferable, pompous twat!
- Poppy Meldrum (Susie Brann) & Blanche 'The Cook' Lipton (Brenda Cowling) in 'You Rang M'Lord'
- Jean Dixon (Rita May) in 'Early Doors' - I find her gossiping, self-righteous and greedy nature not an amusing or quirky trait. Bitch!
What are yours folks?
