This first eppy when Humphries uses Slocombe's umbrella to open the lift doors. A feminine like, flowery umbrella pops out and Miss Prescott automatically assumes it's Mr. Humphries.

The scene where Mavis teaches him how to rout the drainpipe (probably the most un-PC gay joke in either series) was both regretable and groan inducing. Unfortuneately it only makes sense if he's gay.

I'm not sure quite what I'm inferring here but, most gay guys that I have known wouldn't have felt as uncomfortable sharing a bed with Mavis as Mr. Humphries did!

I'm sure they would be happy to have someone to keep their backs warm.

I think Mr. Humpries was definitely "undecided". Even he didn't know if he was or wasn't.

I agree.

Upon first learning that Mr. Humphries and Mavis had spent the night together in the same bed...


"That's not like you, Mr. Humphries. What happened?"

"Nothing."

"That's more like you, Mr. Humphries."

I don't know about that. I think Mr Humphrey's knew his sexuality. In g&f they toned down his over the top performance.

They toned it down so much that it's almost as if he's straight with gay-ish tendencies, which is a bit sad, really. To be perfectly honest, though, I actually like the Mavis/Humphries relationship, as it does bring a different dynamic to his character. At one point, he almost directly states his bisexuality, though. (When the woman from court--I don't remember her name--says, "I'm the other way," when flirting with Miss Brahms, Mr Humphries says, "I'm in-between.")

Mr. Humphries was, as Mavis put "An All-Rounder". While there were numerous references to his encounters with men, including trannies, there were also some encounters with women: the girl from the poodle parlor who did his hair and made him sit up and beg, the woman from the Salvation Army that he became very good friends with under the pier, the woman who he went to the movies with and who his mother should either leave, or make an honest man of him. And there was Lavinia Effingham ffoukes. How many times did he say "What makes you think it was a him?"

Weigh the times throughout the series that he was with men compared to the times he was with women. He was with the men way more. As far as the "woman from the Salvation Army" I still can't make any sense out of that one. Humphries starts out talking about a stable boy putting him on a "dead cert" and then morphs into the beach story.
