    Haha. "Four! I mean 'Five'! I mean 'Fire'!!"

    One of the reasons this show is so good is the brilliant cast and the hilarious characters they play.

    Moss is probably my favourite character, but closely followed by Roy (Moss: What are you eating Roy? Roy: Bucket of fried chicken. Comes in a real bucket.") Hilarious. Or maybe it's Roy closely followed by Moss. Either way, these two as the main pair of characters are fantastic.

    But when I first saw Chris Morris in the show I actually shouted out "OMG it's Christopher Morris!" I thought he was great in The Day Today, and especially Brass Eye. Deholm is another hilarious character. Even the minor characters are played by really funny actors. Oliver Chris is great (especially in Green Wing) and Noel Fielding likewise in The Mighty Boosh. There's real comedy pedigree throughout the cast.

    I can't say I've seen the actress who plays Jen anywhere else except in an episode of Extras, but she's also good.

    i have to say ,moss is hilarious.

    he is definately the FUNNIEST character in my opinion , but richmond is my favourate to watch.

    he's crazy and cute. Noel Fielding-genius!

    jen reminds me of me , so....

    oh and douglas from series 2 is great!

    denholm makes me lol on tht episode calamity jen, he's a typical boss.

    thts all i have to say really , apart from i feel a little sorry for roy.

    Denholm, he's been dead since the start of Series 2 but anytime Chris Morris turns up he's the best thing in a programme.

    Roy! He is so cute, funny and that accent!!!


    It's one of those rare shows where I like EVERY character/actor, so they're all good, but I miss Noel...

    Moss is like tv show nerdy...Ray is a more realistic modern day video game-playing , torrent downloading , sex-craving nerd.

    Dont think Ive missed out many characters.

    I'd have to say Moss, he's your average nerd!

    Jen. She's the reason I bother following the guys on the show at all. The lads are a pair of nicely played nerds but we've seen that elsewhere. Jen is the hinge upon which the whole comedic enterprise hangs. She's the exact believable fit for the trio in the IT dungeon. Too normal and straight and she'd have us wondering why she stays at all - too much like one of them and she stops being the hinge. It's a perfectly played character.
