DS Icon: Gordon The Gopher
However, it might not have been such a success story if it wasn't for one creature. A creature named Gordon The Gopher. Communicating through a high-pitched squeak that only Schofield is known to understand, the furry friend was an anarchic, leather jacket-wearing nutter. Replaced in later years by the inferior Edd The Duck and irritating Otis The Aardvark, Gordon was one of a kind. Outside of the Broom Cupboard he struggled for work and there have been several reports of stints in rehab for various addictions and tabloid allegations about coke and call girls. Even Schofield, his most loyal pal, has ditched his buddy for the more curvaceous Holly Willoughby. But wherever Gordon is now and whatever trouble he's in, he will always be remembered fondly as a DS Icon.
