Job/Position Leader of the de Gaulle Resistance/ Post Mistress
Nationality French
Affiliation The de Gaulle Resistance
Portrayed by Kirsten Cooke

Michelle Dubois (also known as Michelle of the Resistance) is a main character in 'Allo 'Allo, played by Kirsten Cooke. She is the leader of the predominantly female de Gaulle Resistance.[1] She is one of the few characters in the series that is bi-lingual. She pretended to be attracted to René to keep him in the Resistance. Her code name was Blue Tit.

Appearance[]

Michelle is hardly ever seen without her beret or long coat.

When working at the post office in the neighbouring village, Michelle dons a pair of black rimmed spectacles and talks with a lisp. Once, when entering Café René, she dressed as a German soldier as a disguise.[2]

Character[]

A true believer in the cause of the Resistance, the light of fanaticism drives her dedication to her guerrilla activities, but also makes her expect the same of the others. Those activities primarily consist of concocting wild plan after wild plan (usually to get the British airmen back to England, but with the occasional harassment of the occupying Germans thrown in), that then usually fall upon René and the others to try and execute.

Michelle is one of the few regular female characters who appears resistant to René's charms, though she is willing to pretend an interest on occasion, to get him to do what she wants.

Quotes[]

"Listen very carefully, I shall say zis only once" - Repeated line.

Note[]

Male members of the Resistance are seen on a few occasions, most notably as part of the group attempting to rescue the British airmen from the Communist Resistance.[1]
