How do you imagine Mr. Boddy/Dr. Black?

Post by Jonathan Green » Thu Feb 13, 2020 8:23 pm

How do you imagine the victims from Clue.

I see Mr. Boddy as a generous, kind-hearted, yet naive man.

Dr. Black, on the other hand, is a cold-hearted, greedy man. He's also Boddy's uncle, Sir Hugh.

I tend to think in those terms too, as in the 2003-2007 games.

Mine's a mix of Reginald Boddy (A.E. Parker books) and John Boddy (2000s games)

"John Boddy" wouldn't have the middle name of "Brown", would it?

(NOTE: "John Brown's body lies a-moldering in the grave
But his soul goes marching on
" was from an old song.)

No, but the Boddy from VCR is named John Q. Boddy.
It's never said what the Q stands for, maybe Quincy.

You know I always wonder how the characters first reacted to Boddy's name.

Green, age 12: "My name is Giovanni Green."

Boddy, age 13: "Mine's John Boddy."

Green: "Boddy? Like a human body?

Boddy: "Yes, with an extra D. I've been told it means messenger of peace or something."

Green: "Who told you that?"

Boddy: "My dad."

And if Mr. Boddy had married actress (Elizabeth) "Busy" Philipps https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Busy_Philipps, would she then be "Mrs. Busy Boddy"?

Ha, I can actually see Mrs Busy-Boddy as a character in a version of Cluedo where someone has bumped off the town gossip.
