Lord Adalbert D'Ysquith, the 8th Earl of D'Ysquith — an Arrogant Formidable Presence Mays: "We wanted him to stand out. I suggested to Linda the pink coat, the red crimson fox hatting, the top hat, jodhpurs and boots and riding crop or a whip with the antlers at the end. And gloves. He's always in full fox-hunting regalia even at the dinner table."
Lord Asquith D'Ysquith — Elderly Banker Not Usually Given to Public Displays of Emotion Mays: "He's a man of business. I embraced the stereotypes from all the Ealing Studios comedies I saw. He has the mourning clothes, the top hat and a cane. He seems a bit feeble."
