Joe Mason
Born c.1928
Children Martin Downes (1956)
Played by Unseen

Joseph "Joe" Mason was a man that Bet Lynch slept with after meeting him at a party in early 1956. He was twelve years her senior and neglected his responsibilities when he fled Weatherfield after learning that Bet was pregnant. Their son, Martin, was born in October of that year but Bet never heard of Joe again and was forced to give her son up for adoption.

Note: The TV Times issue of 23rd December 1989 to 5th January 1990 carried a piece of short fiction by Adele Rose entitled "A Tale of Christmas Past" in which Bet accidentally meets up with Joe again in the Orinoco Club in December 1966 and finds that he is a washed-up has-been.
