I often thought what would have happened to the character Morrell next after he got beaten by Romeos dad I think he would have either moved on somewhere else and got into a simular situation or before long gone to far and got arrested and then I would expect been sectioned.

Morrell is one of the best characters in any film for pure entertainment value. I wish icould watch the film for the first time again. Iv seen it about twenty five times. Just wanted to share that. I hope Mr Meadows or Mr Considine see's this post just to remind them of what a genius character was created.
He was nearly reprised by Paddy Considine in Reeves and Mortimer's whatsit called, wasn't he? "Catterick". Shane hasn't really done a Kevin Smith style self-referential aspect to his films (ie a Jay and Silent Bob who are in all of them), but it's still possible that they all exist in the same world. Maybe he'll do an ensemble film in the future including characters from all the others.
I think I saw Morell shopping for SPX trackie bottoms in my local Matalan. if I remember correctly he went for a lovely Marroon pair priced around £4. I think he works part time at my local chippie, putting potatoes in the chipper round the back.
Strange that someone mentioned Catterick...there was a bit in that pilfered straight from Romeo Brass - I think it was when the bloke from League of Gentlemen had Bob Mortimer's character held hostage and he told him to do something and then said 'he's doing it as well...pathetic'. Just like when Morrell said it to Knock's dad.
I imagine that Morrell could well have been fitted into Catterick in place of the LOG bloke's character. Glad he wasn't though...Morrell is best left in his own little universe. Would love to see a film about what happened to him after though.

In defense of the pilfering, I think ROMEO is one of their favourite films. When I met Vic he amazed me by being able to quote it. In fact, to straighten this one out, Morrell wasn't going to be reprised for CATTERICK. Vic and Bob had actually written a part for me (that Reece Shearsmith eventually played) but I'd already committed to DEAD MAN'S and SUMMER OF LOVE so was unable to do it. There you go!
