Evans is the Hardman family butler, and a loyal person. His brother owns a taxi, and in Going To Ground, he borrows the cab and acts as Lisa Hardman's chaperone, driving her around to pick up Dax Jones , Gideon Reader and Mia Cooper . He takes them to a petrol station, under Lisa's orders, and when Lisa and Dax almost get caught by the authorities, Lisa is forced to abandon him. She tells him to go to a train station in Bristol, secretly placing her phone in to his coat pocket so they track the phone back to him if they try to track them with the signal. Evans goes to the station, but Lisa, Mia, Dax and Gideon don't.
