- Richard Macduff
- Played by Billy Boyd
An old college friend of Dirk's from Cambridge Richard Macduff is as a software engineer for WayForward Technologies II, the British start up owned by Gordon Way.
He is the designer of the ever popular Anthem spreadsheet programme which owes its success to being able to convert corporate accounts into music, a feature that endears it to the creators of Powerpoint presentations. The corporate world, and Gordon in particular, are clamouring for an encore.
Unfortunately Richard is falling behind his deadlines to create the updated version, concentrating instead on the problem of working out how to remove the sofa that has got stuck in his stairway. Or, failing that, to work out how it managed to get there in the first place.
He is also falling behind in his ever more desperate attempts to rescue his somewhat shaky relationship with Susan Way, the sister of his boss.
