60 year old Joe Sellers has always lived a solitary life.
A stickler for rules and routine, Joe has lived in the house for 15 years and works as a Maths teacher. On Coulthard Street he is the first to point out when anyone steps out of line, treating his neighbours as he would his pupils. Joe had previously cared for Melissa’s mother and Melissa’s arrival left him angry at the loss of his close friend and companion. Living alone, it soon appears that not all is as it seems in the basement flat of 8 Coulthard Street.
