Nigel would describe himself as a genius, and what’s more, a pillar of Woodland Land society, an inventor, man of letters and quite a good gardener. He reminds us of a university professor, - and is in fact modelled on a combo of Mike Batt’s Uncle Arthur, and his Uncle Peter, neither of whom were university professors but we just thought we'd throw that in. .He can invent anything. He is working on an underwater onion peeler and a cat detector. The cat detector will be less useful than the onion peeler because most people can detect cats anyway. Anyway, he’s working on one.

He is married to the charming Dotty, who, he notices is a little bit less pretty and young than she used to be but is still quite a big bit pretty and a little bit young so that’s alright. He drives a helicopter. His helicopter is blue in the mornings, pink in the afternoon on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and pink in the mornings, blue in the afternoons on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. His wife Dotty also has a helicopter which is pink in the mornings on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Other days it starts out blue and changes to pink at lunchtime.
