Invisible Frasier Characters?

Postby domi_dot_com » Sat Oct 12, 2013 12:53 am

I was just watching Here's looking at you and noticed at the end that we never actually see Irene. Apart from the obvious Maris, are there many other characters central to an episode or brought up in conversation several times that we never actually get to see?

Derek Mann,an important character that we never see. He wants to beat up Frasier but is prevented to do so by the police (that Martin called discreetly). He's then mentioned a few times throughout the series.

Nice idea for a thread!
There's Martin's old friend from the police, Mickey Dougan (if I got the name right), whom I'd like to see (his wife as well, whose bra is big enough to fit a horse).
Daphne's brother Billy, though he must have been in that scene when they all burst into her room in SBSB.
Can't remember any more, but it will come to me sooner or later :).

One thing you will eventually discover is how sparingly a lot of the characters on the show were used. I am talking about the guest characters. They show up in one episode, disappear entirely, but are referred through various others ones and have a role left. Take Roger for instance. He shows up in only one episode even though Roz is supposedly dating him for several. This is one of the things that really annoys me. How cheap they were with their guest talent. A lot of them could/should have been invited for 2-3 episodes. They all became invisible character so to speak.

Roz's sister is shown twice and she's relatively consistent both times. Roz' mother is referred to, countless times and only shown once. Roz's daughter on the other hand is seen more than a couple of times and played by different actors too, so is Freddy, btw. Daphne's mother is seen many times, maybe a little too many. she's even shown once in the 11th season where she says, ONE short line only. Odd for such a talkative character, btw.

Yeah, I've always thought the actor who played Roger was a very good choice for Roz's boyfriend, and I'd hoped they'd end up together, so it's a real shame he wasn't used more.

Actually, he was too well balanced to be a good recurring character for the show. Note how the only ones that come back have some disturbing character flaws, Bebe, Daphne's mother, her brother Simon, Lana/Lorna, Roz' sister, to name a few.
