The following is a list of characters from the British sitcom Is It Legal?

Colin Lotus[]

Lotus is the junior partner of the firm and succeeded his father once he had retired.

Colin is very proud to be a solicitor and is enthusiastic about his work but unfortunately he is naive and very often makes stupid mistakes and it is usually down to Bob to sort out the mess he has made.

He is very helpful to the rest of the firm despite the fact that they all think he is annoying and that he is very strange.

He is a bachelor who only has his dog Tucker for company, Tucker who was called Malcolm appeared in the first episode of the series 'Death In Hounslow'.

But 'Dick In Court' Colin brought Tucker to work but he had to be looked after by Darren who accidentally let him leave the basement and inevitably the offices, he was never found.

He remained a bachelor despite having a one-night stand with the wife of a client who was imprisoned in 'Office Party'.

In 'Glad To Be Colin' and 'New Bloke' he started a relationship with Sarah who had appeared in the previous two series as the delivery girl from Mr. Bappy the sandwich shop that was below the office.

As a result there was tension between Colin and Bob as Bob used to have a crush on Sarah and he contemplated having a relationship with her.

Dick Spackman[]

Spackman is one of the senior partners of the firm but his knowledge of law is limited. Dick is very arrogant and often disregards others in order to make his life more convenient. Most of his time is spent in his office drinking glasses of sherry, watching golf on the television and not doing any work. He sees his position in the firm as bringing the work in which is completed by Stella, Bob or Colin. Dick's last appearance in the series was in 'Indecision'. In 'A Question Of Pants' it was revealed that Dick had taken early retirement and therefore Stella became the sole senior partner of the firm. In reality the case may have been that Jeremy Clyde chose not to reprise his role in a possible third series

Stella Phelps[]

is the senior partner of the firm and had an ambition of being a solicitor since childhood, and always tried to succeed in being the most professional solicitor. However the rest of the firm, especially partners Colin and Dick, hold her back because of their inept attitude towards law and the legal profession.

Bob Birch[]


is the secretary who has a job at the firm only because her boyfriend did conveyancing for them. She is constantly bored and likes to annoy the other members of the firm, particularly Bob, because of his crush on Sarah.
