An as-yet-unnamed Kevin calls in at John's house, answering a sign in the window advertising a room to let.
It is known that the whole "new look Greatcoat" with Kevin forming a trio alongside John and Jo, never appeared in On/Off the Beat.
There was a significant period of time between 1995-2000 where the strip was effectively cancelled. In 2000, the Freeman and Miller unsuccessfully shopped the series as a satirical battle of wits between Jo and John, without the Greatcout.
In 2001 they found a way to self-publish the strip using Freeman's own revival of Off the Beat, Virtual Lancaster. With this entry into webcomic publishing, the whole concept was revamped, adding the character of Kevin. This allowed for continuity with the previous print series, but also gave Freeman an opportunity to open up the satire to another, younger viewpoint.
