Doting Dotty is the dutiful and eccentric wife of Nigel Farnsebarns Esq., whom she worships. Her little sister may be prettier and have a bigger part in the movie than her, but Dotty has Nigel to look up to. Or more correctly, she has Nigel to whom to look up.

She holds a degree in Nuclear Physics and Cake Decorating but rarely mentions it, as she does not want to make her husband feel inferior. She is a chopper pilot with many hours’ flying time to her credit, and is never happier than when flying along., munching on a raw onion with her lovely, clever Nigel by her side.
