Clive arrived in the village in March 1978, unbeknownst to Donald. He tells his father that he can end his money troubles if Clive and his friends Ian Hepton and Rod Blake find the mineral in the mines they need. However, whilst mining, the mine explodes. Ian is injured, Clive is knocked unconscious, as is Rod, who is in a serious condition. However the three make a recovery and Clive leaves the village the way he came - to the knowledge of nobody.
