Graham moved into Mill Cottage with Rachel and he seemed to be the ideal man as he redecorated, cooked and even alphabetised her CD collection for her. Rachel's friends, like Kathy, were a little worried as he was taking too much control over her life. Graham got Rachel to dress differently and dye her hair auburn - and Rachel was shocked to discover a photo of Graham's first wife, Rebecca, looking remarkably like the 'new' her.

On a walk on Burview Crag, Rachel realised the truth - Grham had an overwhelming need to control and change the women he went out with. It had been this that had driven Rebecca to suicide. Rachel tried to escape, but Graham caught her up and threw her off a cliff.

Pollard became suspicious of Graham, who claimed that Rachel had just accepted his proposal of marriage before she died. Pollard had talked to Rachel the day before, and knew she was thinking of ending the relationship. He tried to find incriminating evidence, but - for the moment at least none was forthcoming.

Rachel realises too late


Biff and Kathy became engaged, but Kathy was worried that he was on the rebound from Tara, and Biff was convinced that Kathy was interested in Graham. Kathy and Graham had become close friends after Rachel's death, and Graham actively encouraged Biff to think there was something going on between him and Kathy.

On the wedding day, Biff decided he couldn't go through with it, and instead rode off into the sunset on his motorbike.

Graham Clark and Kathy became lovers, and planned to marry. But Pollard discovered that he'd killed his wife, and persuaded Marlon of the fact. Graham plotted to leave Emmerdale with Kathy, taking her, on a weekend away and at the top of another cliff, that it was because of Pollard's suspicions. Kathy tried to get away, but they ended up trapped in their car over the edge of the cliff. Pollard and Marlon arrived in time to see Kathy clamber to safety. Graham died as the car plummeted to the base of the cliff.
