DID YOU KNOW?
ADA's mother ELSIE, appears in Episode 5, Series 1, as
the dog Daisy mistakes for Colin.
leads a very full social life, enjoying the jazz club, line dancing
and the Southend seafront. Although she frequents many pubs, she
is not a heavy drinker.
ADA has taken to TV work very well, considering she has not been
trained for it. She has lived all her life with search dogs and
consequently thinks she is a Border Collie.
Her reading is not very good, so the script has to be read to her,
then she is told what is required of her, which she always does
with aplomb, with a little help from Barbara.
She is deeply in love with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, with whom
she has a unique working relationship.

Ada's on-screen counterpart, is Daisy's much-loved poppet, and Tim's
nemesis... and, consequently, Ada is seen in Series 1 alternately
being mauled by Daisy and terrorising a jelly-legged Tim into ready
submission, along with some well-placed Bamboo...
