The locals of Swaddlecombe are an interesting bunch. But are they, or their lifestyle, quite as simple as they seem…?
Albert Moreton – handsome single farmer, car fanatic and a man with a reputation for the ladies!
Roger and Trudy Mudge – landlords of the Swaddle Arms, the eyes and ears of the village
Jean Burnicombe – cleaner, factory worker and jam maker, a woman with a grudge…
The Drewe sisters – triplets Dahlia, Iris and Lavender who run the village shop
The Reverend Edwin Ruminant – the vicar, Morris Minor fan, chicken fancier and all round good egg
Tufty – garage proprietor-cum-squirrel
Bunty Beacham-Brown – the tweed-clad dog trainer, par excellence, admired by Victoria and feared by Albert
