Basic Information

Full name of Jean Warboys. Mrs. Warboys is considered to be Margaret Meldrews closest friend and confident and appears throughout all the series and the majority of the Christmas specials. Mrs Warboys is portrayed as a local gossiper, who seems to know everyone's movements. She is quite an intelligent woman with a big heart but severely lacks tact, and is often placed in amusing situations commonly becoming entangled in Victor's misfortunes. She is also quite outspoken, with a strong will and love of life, with a particular interest in traveling and learning other cultures. She was married to Chris, before Chris met a private detective, the same detective that Jean paradoxically had hired under suspicions of her husband cheating.
