Malcolm Merryman is a character appearing in the episode Echoes of the Dead of the ITV crime drama Midsomer Murders.

A somewhat simple man with a stammer, he spent his days running the garage owned by his parents, and catering to their various whims and needs.  They spent the entire day ensconced in the lounge watching television while he ran the business, although they had a buzzer hooked up from their lounge to the garage so that they could summon him at need.

He spent his evenings at The Signalman pub, where the proprietress often casually flirted with him, to his great delight. 

It was the fact that his parents admitted to never having married and therefore produced a technical bastard in Malcolm that led to their deaths.
