Witherington believes in routine. Witherington finds routine helps provide structure to the potentially overwhelming chaos of life. A man can’t run too far amok if he’s expected for tea and two sugars at twelve. A man of simple pleasures and possessing an untiring wonder for the mechanical world around him, Witherington’s cautiousness stems from a fear many of us are reluctant to stare too deep into; the unknown. 

Male, aged 45 to 65

Roy is the epitome of ‘strong and silent’. Hugely hesitant of confronting his emotions, he prefers to lose himself in physical labour of his work. He possesses a genuine fondness for his son, but his attitude towards the boy’s upbringing, which currently resides solely with the boy’s mother, is vastly different. Roy is the kind of man who shaves in cold water.

Male, aged 40 to 50
