Character Bio

Ollie came straight out of Cambridge and into Government - he's never had a 'real' job. He thinks he knows what's going on but never actually does - he is far too theoretical to ever really understand the workings of PR and spin.

Ollie thinks he's cynical. He's not. Most of the department, especially Cullen, look at him with contempt but he still has his job because the ministers he works for have somehow got the impression he can work miracles when his actions are really nothing more than fluke. That said, to give Ollie credit, some of the ideas he has come up with are actually now adopted policies, so perhaps his approach does work after all.

Ollie used to go out with journalist Angela Heaney, which was useful for planting stories in the press. However he then moved on to dating Emma Messinger, who works for the opposition!
