Mrs Higginbottom is the unseen housekeeper to Auntie Olga, Richie's relative. She answers the phone to Richie when he rings Olga in "Apocalypse." Richie appears to have a very dim view of Mrs Higginbottom, and holds her reputation over an incident he saw when he was 4 years old, when he saw her in a compromising position with a chauffeur and a bucket of fish.
