Like all men who have been brought up correctly, Ash knows when to shoot holes into his foes, and when to break for a cup of tea and a slice of Tiffin. 11am is an acceptable time for tea, as is 3pm. True gentlemen move onto gin at 5pm, and whisky after 11pm. That’s just how it is. Where was I? Oh, right… Ash.
Ok, the Captain is a bit of a colonial British stereotype, with his lustrous ‘tache and his smartly-ironed jungle-explorer outfit. His appearance in the Splitters series is relatively brief, sadly. Even in his brief cameo, he harks back to a time when it was acceptable to spend hours playing Bridge in giant wooden houses, before machine-gunning 500 natives and adjourning for a spot of lunch. In many ways, a simpler time.
