George McVie (Ford Kiernan)

McVie is the archetypal hack and a bit of a newsroom joke.

McVie's a lazy journalist relying on others to do the hard work for him. He’s a drinker and a chauvinist whose main ambition is to bed the sexy Heather. He has little respect for either of his female colleagues but Paddy is determined to prove him wrong. McVie is threatened by her youth and intelligence and her drive to seek out the truth. But he is also smart enough to know that she might be onto something and if he works things out then he might get the credit.
