Another Much Haste to Igford! character has been announced today: Albert!
Albert - Long-Suffering Husband
Albert is Hyacinth Hepburn-Allsopp's mild-mannered husband, a timid man who has aged beyond his years due to the strain of being married to his overbearing and demanding wife.
A reasonably successful man in his youth, Albert inherited the Hepburn & Sons Engine building company from his father in Callaburgh and enjoyed a comfortable life, eventually meeting his wife-to-be and promising her a life of leisure.
With his carefree and comfortable life now a distant memory, Albert has become little more than a chauffeur and source of income for Hyacinth - and is expected to do his duty by his dominant spouse to drive her custom-built steamcar to glory in the Igford Annual Steam Carriage Derby - by whatever means are necessary.
