DR LEGGS’ report on DOROTHY GORDON (Joanne Mildenhall)

DR LEGGS’ report on DOROTHY GORDON (Joanne Mildenhall)

Hello, I am Dr Leggs, the resident psychiatrist of Sunset Cove. Many interesting people come to see me about their problems (and you can sometimes see me in Atlantis High!). Each week I’m profiling different Sunset Covers – and this week is the craziest mother you could wish for – Dorothy Gordon .

Name:Dorothy Gordon
Age: 38

The eccentric mother of Giles Gordon.

Appearance:Seemingly normal on the outside she wears slightly hippy clothes. Always a neat appearance and she likes to keep her hair tied away with a hair-band.
Past History:Dorothy’s past is very mysterious. She doesn’t talk about her younger days and Grampa hasn’t been much help in telling me either. Grampa always refers to her as “Dennis” rather than Dorothy which is very odd, it makes me wonder…
Motives:There seemed no earthly reason why Dorothy decided to move to Sunset Cove. There wasnt’ some great job waiting for her there. Dorothy’s motives are unclear – she seems to be on the search for something or someone and poking around the Vermonts house is a favourite pastime.
Influences:Dorothy doesn’t have many influences. She’s a very confident woman and doesn’t like to be told what to do. The only close people in her life are Grampa and Giles both of which she likes to give advice not the other way around.
Strengths: Dorothy is very confident. She knows what she wants and she goes out and gets it. Where there’s a will there’s a way.
Weaknesses: Dorothy is natually curious and lives life on the edge. She can sometimes find herself in precarious situations because of her curious nature. Cooking is not her strong point either – her chicken broth leaves a lot to be desired.
Catchphrases: “‘schools make me nervous, you’ve got bullies, peer pressure, raging hormones – and that’s just the teachers”
Secrets:Dorothy loves surfing. She’d do almost anything to catch the perfect wave. She even practices in the bath.

Rumour has it that Dorothy is not what she seems. She’s been living a double life. She’s often seen wearing and shopping for men’s clothing but all the rumours don’t add up. I’m not yet sure what it all means…
