There are also "atmospheric" muffled thunder effects throughout the episode, just so we get the message.Gives details of the drugs raids on McNally's massage parlours, after Kate has tipped off Inspector Grace (252), and in (316) credited as "TV Newsreader" reporting Chrissie's "escape" from hospital.Reporting on Lou's escape (608) and when Lexie is watching TV news (643).For the charity telethon (652).Reads the news of the robbery of two bookies in which Lorelei was involved (656).Reading the radio news of Merle's "escape" (672)Reporting on the forest fires in (597) but, as the credit implies, only in voiceover.Jim and Leila's son, younger brother of Matthew.

Nicky (Dog) (Nicky)Shane's dog (463)-(474). A versatile little actor who does an affecting "play dead" and a exciting "fetch", which is one more expression that his human owner.Investigating Paddy's murder by Nola McKenzie (339). He (or one of the other police officers in the same episode) is referred to in dialogue as Det Gilbert.One of Queenie's associates in the plot to try to frighten Nikki Lennox (572)-(573).One of the teenage delinquents sent on a day scheme to Wentworth to "scare them straight".

Nikki gets above her station by attempting to blackmail Joan over her affair with Terri Malone (569). Nora and the other women trick Nikki into helping with an "escape" using the recently released Queenie to put the fear of God in her with her "thugs" (one of whom is an outrageous bald queen who wouldn't frighten anyone with half a brain).

She tells the story of the heroic rescue of her dog (649) . Not credited until (650).Oddly likeable baddie: possibly due to a distinctly surrealist likeness to Linda Blair (in head spinning mode) in "The Exorcist". More details.One of the prisoners transferred from Barnhurst after the fire (537). Jailed for murder of 3 hitch hikers. Becomes top dog. Escapes through the ventilation system (588). Despite Terry Bourke's book, she is not "finished off" by Reb Kean, but killed by Harry Bassinger and her body dumped just inside the perimeter fence.First seen at Colleen's farewell party (456), which is strange as Joyce's husband had previously been a completely different man.
