Mark Latimer is the father of Danny Latimer, Chloe Latimer and Elizabeth Latimer and is married to Beth Latimer. He works as a local plumber and has his own firm, Mark Latimer Plumbing. He is good friends with colleague Nige Carter . He told the police he was on an emergency call-out the night of Danny's murder, but was infact involved in an affair with Becca Fisher, and they met each other on the night of Danny's death.He was one of the first people to be considered as a suspect in the investigation into Danny's murder, although he strongly believed it was local Shopkeeper and Danny's boss Jack Marshall. His mother lives in Wales.

Mark hit Danny only once but unfortunately that one hit sent Danny over the the Millers' house and that started the secret meetings between Joe Miller and Danny that led to Joe strangling Danny. At some point after the trial, Beth kicked Mark out of the family home.

We learn in episode 3-6 that Mark always thought he could have saved Danny had he just gone into the clifftop cabin when he picked up his car after the liaison with Becca. Joe finally told him it was too late at that point. Joe refuses to turn himself in and Mark realizes he's not capable of murdering Joe to get justice. Mark's gone into a tailspin of depression.
