James was an inhabitant of the village of Crook Marsham.

He and Holly Kidd were in love and going to marry. He had an English degree, which he used to try to get a job as junior reporter on a Northumbrian newspaper. However, he was killed in an accident in 1962.

When the Sentience manifested in Crook Marsham in 1968, it appeared to Holly as James. This made her open up to it emotionally, allowing it to feed on and kill her. (PROSE: Nightshade)
