When we first see David he is amazingly normal, well-spoken, and charming. It is hard to believe he's the product of Tubbs and Edward! Tubbs doesn't even recognize him. David had gone away to college in London, started a construction business, and eventually fought for the contract to get a road built through Royston Vasey so he could reconnect with his parents. When Edward shunned his son, David offered to take his mother back with him to London. Somehow, Edward convinced David to remain "local", and immediately David's appearance began to change. By Series 2, David had become... something else. Something monstrous, tall, and covered in hair. A few Royston Vasey inhabitants became playmates for a short while (including Benjamin Denton and Haig), eventually his parents decided it was time for him to wed. They eventually kidnapped Barbara, who was up for the idea. Unfortunately, David only got to experience one night of wedded bliss before he died -- trapped in the shop as it burned to the ground (due to a misunderstanding on the part of the townspeople, who thought that the Tattsyrups were somehow responsible for the plague). Barbara survived and bore his twins -- a son and a daughter.
