Uncle Albert has been found dead in the Rotter’s flat, underneath several boxes of wine and various other ‘off the back of a lorry’ goods. He was hit on the head by a particularly heavy box of wine and died as a result.
Uncle Albert has much more money to his name that any of his nephews realised. He’s been keeping it all stuffed into his mattress. Although he lives with the Rotter’s as if in poverty, he’s been scrimping and saving all his life and is nearly a millionaire in his own right! Eric realises this and also realises the Rotter’s will inherit the money. However, Flipper’s father turns out to be Uncle Albert! Although he doesn’t realise the connection himself, Eric knows that Uncle Albert will figure it out eventually. That would cut the Rotter’s out of their inheritance, so Eric kills his uncle in order to ensure that this time tomorrow the pair would be millionaires!
Eric Rotter – Wheeler-dealing market trader.
Genuine to the core and full of optimism, Eric is a loveable rogue with the gift of the gab.
Johnny Rotter – The younger, taller and accident prone half-rother of Eric Rotter.
Lean and gullible, Johnny has never really grown out of his petulant teenage years and can still be found sulking in the corner at times.
Flipper – Road sweeper.
Rarely without his trusty broom, Flipper’s a man of few words and even fewer brain cells.
Rochelle – “Significant other” of Eric.
A failed actress, Rochelle brings a bit of class to the Rotter household. At least, Eric likes to think so.
Pandora Trotter – Johnny’s wife.
Intelligent and slightly spoiled, Pandora has breeding, poise and all the common sense Johnny lacks.
Darlene Royce – Wife of a used car salesman.
A trophy wife with a desire for family, Darlene is often left unfulfilled.
