TERRY DARLINGTON was brought up in Pembroke Dock. He moved to Stone, Staffordshire, where he founded Research Associates, the market research company, and Stone Master Marathoners, the running club. Like many Welshmen he is ill at ease with practical matters and known to linger in public houses. He likes boating but doesn't know much about it. MONICA DARLINGTON's father was a gardener and her mother a housemaid. She was beauty queen of Brecon and Radnor, has a 1st class degree, has run 30 marathons, and leaps tall buildings with a single bound. She quite likes boating. BRYNULA GREAT EXPECTATIONS (JIM) is sprung from a long line of dogs with ridiculous names. Cowardly, thieving and disrespectful, he hates boating.
