15 Dream Team characters that will make you sick with nostalgia
Ten years of glorious trash.

IF YOU WERE lucky enough to have access to Sky One back in the day, there’s a good chance you came across the most ridiculous TV show of its era: Dream Team.

A cross between The Bill, Footballer’s Wives and some sort of low budget murder mystery, Dream Team was a weekly dose of the ludicrous every Sunday night.

And this was the cast of characters (who, frankly, should never have moved to Harchester because it seemed to have the highest murder rate in the world in the late ’90s):

1. Luis Amor Rodriguez

His awful Argentinian accent was a character highlight.

2. Lynda Block

The dramatic heartbeat of Dream Team – and survivor of 48 attempts on her life (probably).

3. Jerry Block

Casually tried to assassinate the best player on the team. As you do.

4. Karl Fletcher

5. Abi Fletcher

Our token Irish character.

Abi met Karl when he was recovering from a bus crash (obviously) and their romance blossomed from there.

She might have involved in various hostage scenarios too, because Dream Team.

6. Tash Parker

One half of the major glam couple in Dream Team, along with…

7. Jamie Parker

Jamie got killed when a SWAT team stormed the team’s dressing room.

Seriously.

8. Scott Lucas

A Harchester legend.

Managed to avoid serious injury/death during his time on the show – and for that he’s a walking miracle.

9. Dean Hocknell

Bringing that necessary Scottish accent to the mix.

14. Claudia Irving

He looked like he could – and should – have been a member of Oasis in the early ’90s.
