Dal Series Series 1, 2 and 3
Tribe Mallrats


Immensely sensible and practical. A down-to-earth jack-of-all-trades handyman, who comes into his own in this new environment through his innate ability to scavenge useful bits and pieces.

He makes the things that Jack invents, though, Jack won’t admit that Dal is indespensable to his work and thepaire have a slightly comical, love-hate working relationship. A sensitive soul who develops an unrequitted passion for Trudy.
