Charlie Havistock has followed his wife, Alice, out to India to join her and their son Percy. On the surface, Charlie is a cheerful, charming man who is happy to play low status, but it quickly becomes clear that he's not yet forgiven Alice for walking out on him three years earlier.

As the summer rolls on, Charlie becomes an increasingly predatory and abusive presence at Chotipool as his campaign of hatred against his wife intensifies.

Charlie is played by Blake Ritson.
