Jonathan Hewitt made his first appearance on 28 April 1992. He is portrayed by Jonny Lee Miller.

Backstory[]

Jonathan has had a number of jobs including a Chef at a care home, an assistant in a shoe shop, hospital porter, working in a library and then unemployed.

Storylines[]

Jonathan is the layabout son of Christine Hewitt – who employs Arthur Fowler to tend to her garden. Jonathan has been unemployed for a while after dropping out of college, and when Christine sees Arthur advertising for a gardening assistant she approaches him and recommends Jonathan for the post. Arthur agrees and he and Jonathan spend several weeks tending to gardens in Albert Square.

Arthur's love for plants rubs off on Jonathan, and he seems extremely keen on the job, even helping Arthur sell his plants at the May Day fête on the Square. However, as the weeks go by Jonathan starts to shirk his responsibilities, leaving work early and then failing to show up at all. After a few days of absence, Arthur contacts Christine to complain. According to Christine, Jonathan has left London to attend a festival in Scotland with his hippy friends. Christine takes over the job in his place, which is the precursor to her affair with Arthur. Jonathan never appears again, but in March 1993 Christine visits him in Scotland because he has suffered an injury.
