Gordon is Lynn's boyfriend and a member of her Baptist church. He is an ex-policeman and devout Christian who declares he lives by the Bible. However, he also threatens Alan with violence in order to make him treat Lynn better, resulting in Alan raising Lynn's paltry salary from £8,000 to £9,500 a year.

In Alan's book Nomad, he reveals that Lynn has become increasingly paranoid about someone not answering when she calls their name due to Gordon having died of a stroke in his home.
