Comments Catch Phrase

"Me Ol' Mucker" is an affectionate phrase used by Inspector Thomas Brackenreid, one of a handful of his catch phrases. It has its origins in England and Ireland where the term "Mucker" is slang for a low labourer who removes muck (waste, debris, etc.) from a mine, stable or construction site, also used for comrades in the trenches of WWI. In Northern Ireland, the term is also slang for a friend or acquaintance.

More often than not, Brackenreid calls Murdoch "Me Ol'Mucker" and calls Constable Crabtree "Bugalugs".
