Don is a mysterious character whose true surname is unknown, although he goes by a number of aliases. When Colin Dale runs out of money he is able not only to help him out, but to pay Wes Tacton's debts to Roy Aloak. However he is then mistakenly arrested by DI Warren Street and imprisoned. He escapes from prison and meets Ken Sington, who is acting as getaway driver, and accompanies him to Wick, where a talent contest is taking place, but Ken abandons him to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest in Manchester. Heading south, Don comes across an isolated monastic order in Yorkshire and eventually becomes a monk.
