|“||There has been some hanky-panky.||”|
— Algernon's characteristic expression
Algernon Wyse is the local landowner married to Susan Wyse, MBE and part of the committee that judges the Summer Exhibition.
A curious ‘Jack Sprat’ couple: he small and charming, she statuesque and voluble. Proper and constantly bowing, Algernon Wyse is the arbiter of correctness in Tilling and has good family connections via his exotic sister – the Contessa de Faraglione. He is always immaculately (if eccentrically) dressed and has a courteous and captivating way with the ladies.
