Character Bio

Philippa Moorcroft photo

The scatty and disorganised manager of the Human Resources department, having apparently landed the job because she was having an affair with the factory manager, Mr Michael to whom she refers as Mikey.

According to her mother, she failed several of her O Levels.

Her well-meaning attempts to relieve the dinnerladies' stress or help them in their personal lives generally have the opposite effect.

In the second series she decides to break up with Mr Michael, and, having spent days planning how to do so to the smallest detail, she is furious when he dumps her first.

She later begins a relationship with a colleague, Tom Murray 'from my office'.

Philippa is the only character in the series who comes from the south of England.
