Character Bio

Herr Otto Flick photo
Herr Otto Flick (Richard Gibson series 1 to 8, David Janson series 9) - The local Gestapo officer who tries to show as little emotion as possible. Dressed in a long leather double-breasted coat over a pinstriped suit, with a wide-brimmed leather hat, leather gloves and octagonal steel-rimmed glasses. He fancies the equally blonde Helga Geerhart, whom he plans to marry after the war. He is the godson of Heinrich Himmler. He is known for his considerably exaggerated limp, and his frequent use of the word 'Gestapo' as an adjective: "My powerful Gestapo binoculars", "My Gestapo staff car", etc. In one episode he answers the phone by announcing himself as "Flick, the Gestapo"; after a short period he is forced to explain to the caller that he said 'Flick, the Gestapo' and not 'Flick ( Fuck ) the Gestapo' as the caller had believed. Herr Flick often hits von Smallhausen on the head with his cane, often saying "Wrong!". When Flick wants Helga to kiss him he will say to her in a stern manner "You may kiss me!" In the episode "Pigeon Post", it is revealed that he has the same taste in undergarments as Helga. Inviting Helga to the Gestapo dance, he explained their song: "You put your left boot in! You take your left boot out! You do a lot of shouting and you shake your fists about! You light a little smokie and you burn down ze town! Zat's vot it's all about! Ahh...Himmler, Himmler, Himmler..." The change of actors in the final series was explained by Flick having had plastic surgery done on him to avoid capture by the approaching Allied forces.
