Freddie Wise on Geoffrey Charles
"When you meet Geoffrey Charles at the beginning of the series he is very lost, particularly after losing his mother, Elizabeth.
He has always wanted to see himself as this kind of alpha male typeFreddie Wise
"At the same time he is a product of his upbringing, everything is repressed and the way to deal with things is by drinking or spending money you don’t have and doing material things to avoid dealing with any of the real emotional aspects of it all.
"He is trying to find a purpose and he looks up to Ross and has always wanted to see himself as this kind of alpha male type so he decides he wants to join the military at Great Marlow to prove to himself that he can be a man with purpose, as the idea is that when you are an officer you are a gentleman.
"It doesn’t matter how much money you have or what class you belong to, that is your status and that appeals greatly to him."
