Dandy Nichols

Dandy Nichols (1907, London - February 6, 1986) was an actress most noted for her role as Else Garnett, the long-suffering wife of the racially bigoted and misogynistic character Alf Garnett in the BBC sitcom Till Death Us Do Part. Alf often referred to Else as a "silly old moo" (the word "cow" would have been unacceptable to contemporary audiences).

Prior to the series, Dandy Nichols had been a minor comedy actress, appearing in many old British films. She reprised her role as Else in the first series of the sequel, In Sickness and in Health. (The second series used Nichols' own death as an excuse to kill off the character and dealt with Alf's experience of widowhood.)
