Margaret Healy is Sam Healy's mother. She first appears in "Mother's Day". She is portrayed by Lisa Walker.

Physical Appearance Edit

Margaret has blonde hair which she normally has in a lazy beehive style. She has large eyes. Her clothing is very stylised of the late 50's-early 60's.

Personality Edit

Margaret has an unstated mental illness which causes her to be frantic and erratic.

Biography Edit

Season Three Edit

In flashbacks, she is shown to be mentally unstable. She displays erratic behaviour, such as throwing objects and drawing on the walls, mood swings, lurching from agitated to kind in a split second. ("Mother's Day")

Season Four Edit

She is eventually submitted to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), against her will. Despite her struggle, she attempts to be good to her son, and is shown cooking a meal for him in a season four flashback.

Ultimately, when faced with continued ECT sessions, she runs away from home, abandoning her marriage and her son. ("Doctor Psycho")

These flashbacks build upon Healy's psychological issues as an adult, where he has difficulties understanding women, is easily swayed by the more manipulative ones and takes his anger out on the ones he feels "betray" him. His sexism has been called out by numerous characters. Healy is also unsuccessful at dating, eventually resorting to purchasing a mail order bride, Katya Healy.
