Only Catherine Cawood could correctly name all of these niche Happy Valley characters

Hayley Cropper popping up in season two was a fever dream

Happy Valley has been in our life for a long time now, thanks to seasons two and three having a hefty seven year gap between them. In that time, we’ve seen umpteen villains, heroes and crooks roam Yorkshire and cause carnage whilst we watch Sally Wainwright’s intricate plot weave stories together. It’s hard to keep track of all the many Happy Valley characters that have come and gone in that time, and only a true superfan would be able to name them all in our very specific niche characters quiz!

To get full marks on this Happy Valley character quiz, it’s no good just knowing your Catherine Cawood, your Clare Cartwright and your Tommy Lee Royce. You need to know the ins and outs of the three seasons, so cast your mind back and think about it – what feels the most correct and most likely. Each question has a picture to jog your memory, but this really is a Happy Valley characters quiz for the super fans of the best BBC crime drama in a generation. Take the quiz below:
