Graham Lodsworth was the illegitimate son of Dolly Skilbeck and was an army deserter and tearaway. Graham had been given up for adoption as a baby in 1968. In December 1986, he came to Beckindale and started to stalk his mother Dolly. Dolly felt unnerved when Graham followed her one day in the woods. He then revealed who he was, her long lost son. Graham stayed in the village for 2 months and bonded with Seth Armstrong. In the end, Graham was sent back to the army.
