Doctor Cole was one of the medical staff at Weatherfield General who tended to Jim McDonald after an accident on a building site in April 1998. A drunken Jim had turned up to lash out at son Steve, but Steve accidentally pushed Jim from the scaffolding and he fell to the ground.

Doctor Cole told wife Liz that Jim had a fractured lumbar spine and might never walk again, and also broke the news to Jim that he could spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.
