Lyle Davies (Barry Hill)

Kerryn's feeble husband. His son Tim ran up gambling debts which Kerryn embezzles money to pay off, in an attempt to win him round. He is unable to use the opportunity of conjugal visits to comfort Kerryn, and bottles out of visiting her. After Kerryn has hung herself in the conjugal suite in despair, Lyle drives his car off the road (probably deliberately) and is killed (487)-(496).

Lynn Warner (Kerry Armstrong)

Imprisoned in (1) at the same time as Karen Travers for burying a child alive while working as a nursemaid. In fact, she is innocent and the real culprit is her employer, Mrs Bentley. After agitation by Helen Masters, her case is reviewed and she is released. Goes back to live with her parents in the country, but while at Wentworth she had become friendly with Doug Parker who follows her and involves her in a wages snatch. Returned to Wentworth, persecuted by Doreen. Jim Fletcher finds her in bed with Doreen on the night before her eventual release. Kidnapped in mistake for Monica Ferguson (43) by a gang trying to find the payroll money stolen by Harry Martin. We are left to assume that after the police are tipped off and arrest the gang (44) that Lynn is able to go back to live with her parents.

Mabel Morgan (Val Jellay)

Friend of Lexie's real mother Jessie Wyndham and first seen in a scene with her in (589). After Lexie escapes and goes on the run, Mabel gives Lexie a refuge in her brothel (600-602) and reappears in (612) to collect Pocco (Lexie's dog) from Wentworth.

Madge, Aunt (Paddy Burnett)

Joyce Martin's Aunt Madge, visited by Monica to collect the payroll money Joyce is hiding (44).

Maggie May Kennedy (Davina Whitehouse)

Maggie (Margaret) May Kennedy, nee Mullins. She appears for a brief stretch in Wentworth (371-376), and it turns out she knew Lizzie 40 years ago. Dreadfully dull character, with hopelessly dodgy Anglo-Irish-American accent: while actually being a drug runner she manages to convince the women that she is a dotty old lady with a fund of exciting stories. The women's support cannot prevent Ted Douglas arranging for her extradition to the USA to serve her full sentence

At Tony Reid's trial for assault (102). He refers to the earlier trial of Sharon Gilmour in (94) as if he is supposed to be the same person, but there he was credited as Judge.

Maine, Mr (Bruce Carter)

A customer taken out to lunch by Terri Malone and her boss Barry Lockwood (574)

Maintenance Man (Colwyn Roberts)

His casual remarks about the bravery of the men fighting forest fires make Marty Jackson even more guilty that he hasn't volunteered (647).

Attempting to extricate Shane from the drain (471)

Major (Dog) (Mandog Security Services)

Joan Ferguson's dog, given to her as a puppy in (366) by her father. It seems to grow remarkably quickly and by (374) when Des Coulson complains about him, he seems like an adult Rottweiler. When Joan crosses Lionel Fellowes and is forced to take acid by two of his henchman, she has an LSD trip, and comes round to find that she has killed her dog with a pair of scissors (413). For the real thing see Ferguson, Major. Joan's previous dog, the one poisoned by Phillip Langdon, was called "Hanno".

Mal (Paul Jones)

The only speaking guest at the party thrown by Yvonne (35). He is the one involved in some serious lip-suction with her when Bea breaks up the party, and presumably the person Yvonne has in mind when she says in the following episode that she hoped to "get laid".

Mal James (Graham Rouse)

Reporter contacted by Paul Reid to give the women an introduction to journalism for their proposed newspaper, but Bea passes him a story about the Department's delay in freeing Lizzie (87).

Male Escort (Colin Nicoll)

Accompanying "Blonde Woman", who Shane thinks is his mother when Joan takes him to Luna Park (468)

Male Guard (Colin Nicole)

When Franky, Doreen and Lizzie escape (12). The credit seems slightly odd as there never seem to be any female (perimeter) guards - so why make a point of the gender here? In later episodes the description Gate Guard, sometimes with a name, is more usual. It's possible that the credit may really belong to episode (13), and may refer to the gate guard who talks to Lizzie when she returns to Wentworth and asks to be let back in.

Male Guard (Brad Lindsay)

Gate guard (41) (50) and (61). Later and earlier credits under Gate Guard sometimes with the name Trevor added.

Male Guard (Richard White)

Gate guard (41) seen talking to a van driver about Karen. The other gate guard in this episode refers to him as "Ted".

Male Hairdresser (Gary Jones)

Does Lizzie's hair for her day release visit to meet Mick Lawson (398). The writer makes a glancing allusion to the usual suspicon about male hairdressers when Lizzie is outraged by the price he charges and tells him that her usual stylist Madame Beatrice is happy to do her hair for "a couple of fags".

Male Nazi Guard (Peter Schofield)

In Hannah Geldschmidt's nightmare (452)

Male Stripper (Erwin Martens)

Hired by Helen Smart for Bea's 40th birthday (275). The Channel 5 continuity announcer compared him to Donny Osmond, which was cruel, but fairly accurate.

Male Stripper (George Mulov)

On the back of a truck outside Wentworth, organised by Jessie as a treat for the women (624)

Male Visitor (Malcolm Sim)

Nearly gives Myra heart failure by stopping her just after she's walked through the gates at the fete, but he only wants to admire her "hat" and offer her a lift (459).

Malley, Sgt (Peter Aanensen)

Tries to help Edith by lending her an umbrella, unfortunately thereby furnishing her with the weapon with which she assaults Mrs Bessie (45). Referred to as Jack in dialogue.

Malone, Dr (David) (Tim Robertson)

Terri's father (563-564)

Man (James Wright)

He comes to the halfway house in (321), sits down and orders a coffee. As if this were not already suspicious enough, he asks for Sara and gives Judy twenty dollars in payment for some "information". Judy tears up his note and tells him to get lost.

Man (Malcolm Sim)

One of the many people harassing Dennis Cruickshank after he is suspected of murdering teenage girls (529)

Man 1 (Michael Brooks) * Man 2 (Ron Bingham)

Delivering Ettie's statue of "Freedom" (534). This is not just a heavy item but also heavily symbolic, as Judy is released for the final time in this episode. It is moved to the rec room in the next episode then out into the garden where it can be glimpsed occasionally in outdoor scenes, for instance in (680) when Merle introduces her mouse to it.

Manager (Peter Thompson)

Noeline Bourke's boss, who makes the best of a police visit to tell her of her daughter Leanne's death to lag on her for stealing from the offices where she works as a cleaner (122). Practically the dictionary definition of "Heartless Bastard".

Manson, Officer (Anne Phelan)

Threatens to resign over the favourable treatment given to Barbara Davidson (17). Apparently, Ann Phelan was given this role at short notice when the actress originally cast fell ill.

Marcia Huntley (Judith Dick)

Visits Wentworth to see Lizzie after replying to Captain Barton's newspaper advert when he is trying to trace Lizzie's family (118). Although she initially refuses to accept Lizzie's offer of money so that she and her daughter Josie can stay longer at their lodgings near Wentworth, she takes up the offer to live in Doreen's house. Kevin becomes suspicious when Josie refers to her uncle being called Morgan, and Marcia has already been revealed to the audience as fraudulent when she calls the visit to Lizzie a "business trip". Her motive for the deception is to provide Josie with medical treatment. After being exposed as a fraud, Lizzie accepts her and Josie as her real family, and Ellen visits Wenwtorth again in (134) when Lizzie has her 72nd birthday. She sees Lizzie for the last time before taking Josie to Chicago for treatment (140).

A visitor who comes to warn Rita of Harry Parker's threats against the Conquerors (631)
