Rupert Bull is a flamboyant antiques dealer who does business the old-fashioned way.

He hardly knows anything about antiques and seems to buy some items that'll never sell, but thanks to sister Beverley's occasional interjections, the business gets by.

Beverley Bull

Rupert's younger sister, Beverley is short with words and to the point.

Beverley is lazy, and can normally be seen sitting in a chair chain-smoking whilst reading a magazine. Although she often seems asleep, she actually does keep an eye on what is going on around the shop, and often subtly pulls some strings to get Rupert out of trouble.

She used to be a presenter on Antiques Roadshow and is a real expert, but is very happy to sit back and let Rupert run the shop.

Faye

New employee Faye is keen but nervous, especially around the curious and often contrary characters of Rupert Bull Antiques.

Enthusiastic about the antiques world, she is trying to learn how to be a good salesperson - but that's a hard thing to do when you keep getting conflicting and confusing tutorials from Rupert and Beverley.

Toby

Played by: Naz Osmanoglu

Toby is the Bulls' odd job man. Emphasis is on the odd.

Rather stupid and very accident prone, it surely can't be long until he's fired. Rupert appears to like having him around though.
