Mrs Murphy was a neighbours of the Trotters. She appeared in Yesterday Never Comes (1st December 1983). She was a West Indian lady.
In 1983, Del called on Mrs Murphy to stitch up the holes of some tea cosies so he could sell them as soppy hats.
Later on, when Del, Rodney and Grandad had bought an antique banana box, they saw Mrs Murphy come out of one of the lifts, which Del had thought had broken down. They said hello to Mrs Murphy then she walked off. Del, Rodney and Grandad missed the lift as the doors shut.
