Portrayed by Ralph Ineson

Chris Finch, or Finchy is "bloody good" outside sales representative, he is probably the only character in the series who is genuinely cruel. He is brashly confident, openly sexist, rasping-voiced with a natural flair for bullying others with swift, humiliating putdowns (with Brent being his usual target). He likes to dominate conversations and is successful with women, but shows a humourless vicious streak when he loses the staff quiz. David describes him as his "best friend" but actually acts more like a lackey, laughing at his jokes and attempting to ride his coat-tails into the limelight. Finch repays him with disdain.


Chris Finch was in an argument once and said "How can I hate women? My mum's one". (Work Experience)

For 6 years in a row, Chris Finch and David Brent had won the annual Wernham Hogg quiz. (The Quiz)

Season 1

While in a meeting with Jennifer Taylor-Clarke about the proposed downsizing, David Brent receives a phone call which he lets go to answer phone. It's only bloody Finchy who refers to David as a "poof" and tells him to give Jennifer one for him. Before hanging up, Finchy tells Brent to stop looking up Jennifer's skirt which David points out to her that he wasn't. (Downsize)

When Brent discovers that Finchy is responsible for the pornographic image of him, he is pressured into telling Finchy off by his boss and colleagues. Brent, too afraid to do so, phones up Accurist's speaking clock instead. (Work Experience)

Brent rang Finchy up in the morning to remind him of the annual quiz, Finchy replied by telling Brent a joke about Nelson Mandela that's "not racist". (The Quiz)

Chris Finch goes head-to-head against Ricky. (The Quiz)
Finchy arrives later on and instantly begins poking fun at Brent's weight and accuses him of being gay. Later on the two entered the annual quiz as the team The Dead Parrots. Finchy got quite antagonist towards Brent and the other quiz teams when he was unsure of answers to questions. When The Dead Parrots tied with The Tits (Tim and Ricky's team), Finchy went up on stage to battle in a series of tiebreaking questions against Ricky. Finchy lost by being unable to identify which Shakespearian play featured a character called Caliban and blamed quizmaster Gareth Keenan for not making the rules clear. (The Quiz)

When Finchy began having a go at everyone he came into contact with over having lost the quiz, Dawn Tinsley told him to not get so worked up that there are people better than him. Finchy responded that he's better than them at a lot more things such as throwing. Finchy challenges The Tits that if he can throw something over the building then he will have won the quiz. They resort to deciding to throw Tim's shoes over the building which he succeeds in doing and thus "winning the quiz". (The Quiz)

Finchy accompanied much of the office to Chasers where he had a lot more luck in his attempts to pull girls than Brent. He attempted to use his charms on Donna, but once again was beaten by Ricky who was revealed as Donna's boyfriend. (New Girl)

Season 2

One up the bum, no harm done. (Party)
Chris Finch arrived at the office to celebrate Trudy's birthday. After an evening of some standard Chris Finch debauchery, Finchy did Trudy from behind in the carpark. (Party)

Finchy later popped into the Office on Red Nose Day for no purpose but to make a few lewd jokes that had David and Gareth in creases. (Charity)
