"The money ran out pretty fast. The two of them spent it on cars and holidays and that sort of thing. And when it was gone, that was when they turned nasty. Brian especially.

~ Matt Freeman regarding Brian's treatment of him
Brian Conran was Gwenda Davis's boyfriend and occasionally a milkman. He was an alcoholic.
Brian and Gwenda seem to be in an abusive relationship, although Brian seems to hold the power. He is the one that convinces Gwenda to adopt Matthew Freeman, her nephew, so that they can get hold of his inheritance money. Although he later regrets his decision and blames Matt for a lot of things.
Gwenda kills Brian after being convinced by Rex McKenna, a television presenter of an ITV program called the Big Wheel. She stabs him with a kitchen knife after he ridicules her and calls her mad.
