Chrissy Carmichael??????????? ????

did anyone else notice that when the gang check into the hotel in middlesboro, Yosser introduces everyone (Mr.dean, Mr.Hughes, Mr.Malone etc) but Chrissy is introduced as Mr.Carmichael - but his surname in the series is Todd?

I thought it could be a false name as they were probably working and claiming benefits, but if that was the case they would all have false names. Is this a mistake?


John Carmichael was a prominent pigeon breeder. I think it was Yosser's little joke, just as you might introduce an amateur photographer as David Bailey or somebody who drives too fast as Stirling Moss.
