John Coleman joined Blue Watch in 2000 (episode 9), as the new Station Officer, replacing Chris Hammond. One of the elder Station Officers in the brigade, he is an "old school" firefighter bringing discipline to the Watch. This is why the new DO (Griggs) has brought him in. He has won commendations at his previous station (Clapham) and also at Kings Cross. He has been nicknamed "Mustard" at previous posts for obvious reasons!
In Series 13, Coleman is now Station Commander and has been promoted to ADO. Therefore he doesn't attend many shouts unless they are more than four pumpers. He has started to become involved with a local councillor, Alison Hemmings.
