That bothers me, too. Archer might be one who shoots arrows (ideas?) without
bothering about the consequences, or isn't there a soap called The Archers?
Addictive? Maybe awful, but you can't stop watching...

Hathaway seems to have something to do with Shakespear's wife Anne Hathaway,
but I've never fathomed how, since Hathaway says "she's known as "Anne
Moneypenny" here..."

Venturus means to journey far - as into space.

But Shine? Dilian? Torquil? Erskine?

No ideas.
