Camp person who makes infrequent appearances. Although one of the earliest established characters, he was absent from the show for a long period and reappeared in the middle of the show's run. Flowerdew is a dab hand with a sewing machine, especially when, as in "The Nasty Affair At The Burami Oasis", Seagoon tells him to run up a flag. Also appears in "The Histories Of Pliny The Elder"; when he tells Seagoon to "Shut up! It was perfectly quiet till you came along!", Seagoon replies, "You're a sailor, and sailors don't care!". And in "The String Robberies", Seagoon's train arrives in Scotland with a great blast of steam - Flowerdew is mortified: "There should be a law against trains letting off steam when people are wearing kilts!" Comparable with the characters Julian and Sandy from Round the Horne.
