"Wave your hittin' stick about!"
―Tim, trying to get a picture of Nicholas.

Tim Messenger was a journalist who often asked Nicholas to be interviewed with little success. In a newspaper, he once misspelled Angel's name as "Angle", leading to Nicholas briefly becoming the laughing stock of Sandford. During the Sandford Church Fete, Tim told Leslie Tiller about the new bypass scheme, and that Leslie's new land is valuable. However, before he could tell Nicholas Angel this, his head was splattered by a falling spire of the church roof, broken off by presumebly Simon Skinner. His untimely death results from a dislike of him by the Neighbourhood Watch Alliance due to his terrible spelling and tabloid journalism.


  • He is strongly disliked by Roy and Mary Porter, because he listed Mary's age as 55 when she's actually 53.
  • Tim's death is a foreshadow to a later scene when Simon Skinner gets impaled through the jaw with a model village steeple.
