Fair city goes a bit more soupy than soapy

    Is it my imagination or is this new character, Tommy, the doctor's husband, a dead-ringer in terms of his diction and mannerisms for the Buttevant dad in Soupy Norman ?

    I checked out the Wikipedia page on Soupy and it mentions the usual suspects, Barry Murphy, David O'Doherty and another character called Luke Murphy.

    Maybe it is just a coincidence but I can't stop thinking of Soupy Norman every time this guy talks on screen.

    He is very like him! I miss Soupy Norman, it was the funniest thing I'd seen in a long, long time :(

    First time I saw him, I thought it was O' Dowd from Ros na Run.
