With Inspector Grace when he comes to the halfway to house to interview Susie Driscoll about Des (298).In Karen's flashback to her arrest (5).

He takes charge of the handling of another siege, this time at Wentworth after the riot started by Sandy Edwards and Marie Winter (247)-(248), where the character's name is spelt "Thorn" in the credits. He is one of the officers investigating the murder of prostitutes by the black gloved killer (311).

They are released together and go for a meal: Tina goes back on the streets to become the second victim of the black gloved killer (311)Prisoner in Wentworth. The actress is one of the background characters throughout the whole series from (2) to (692), though not always with this name. I think she is first called Murray in (206). She usually isn't given lines, and so is only credited for episodes (593) and (607).Outrageous bald queen, supposedly one of Queenie's thugs, but about as threatening as a plate of pink blancmange (571-573)At Lizzie's appeal against her sentence for the manslaughter of Kay White (152).Pixie's trial (380).At Petra's trial (398)At Judy's trial for murdering Hazel (411-417).At Peter Wright's trial (512).

He visits her in Woodridge to tell her their partnership is over (331).The police officer assigned to be an undercover contact when May and Willie attempt to infiltrate an art gang (582-587). His spectacular lack of success in protecting them should perhaps have been made known to Jessie before she agrees to be bait in the trap for Harry Bassinger (618-620).Teacher appointed to help the women. His first task is to get Merle back from Ingleside which he does in a remarkably short time by using unconventional tactics which show his contempt for routine and bureaucracy. He chooses Kath as his helper in order to get her reconciled with Merle (687-692).Visits Wentworth to meet Pixie after replying to her personal ad (402).Boy who befriends Merle, when she runs away from Kath and Rodney on a shopping expedition (670-672). He may be the son of Bruce Kilpatrick who is in Prisoner around the same time.Baby in maternity, shown to Lexie by her proud mother Patti (627).
Toni McNallyUsually credited under her full name Antonia McNally.Presumably a mistake for Inspector Thorne, as the same actor (whose name is also misspelt Aanenson in the credits) plays this role both before and after. However, the "mistake" is exactly the same in the credits for both episodes (389) and (390), though the character is actually referred to in dialogue as Inspector Thorne in (390).The man who buys Lindy a drink in a bar, follows her home and rapes her (354)-(355).Refuses to help Marty trace Christine Dutton in his attempt to clear Spike Marsh's name (679).Judy's assistant at the first Driscoll House (306). Maxine goes for him in a big way and attempts to seduce him. Any longer term plan is foiled when Tony's ex-girlfriend Melissa arrives on the scene (323) though Maxine does manage to get Tony to sleep with her when he is very drunk (325). Tony decides Melissa means more to him than his job and he leaves with her. The actor is credited in (318) as Alan David Lee which is the name he usually seems to use for other film and TV appearances.Gym instructor, fancied by Alice (well, he's a man...). He appears in (617) and (621).One of the visitors from PASSIVE, the nice one. Pixie goes faint at the sight of him, but it is Bea who actually sleeps with him when he and the other prison visitors are forced to stay inside Wentworth during the lassa fever outbreak (390)-(394). In fact, it almost seems as though the whole lassa fever plotline is cooked up so that Bea can get her end away for the last time just before she is written out. Though it is established that he has no wife and no family, and with a moustache like that...Cousin of Hannah Geldschmidt (456).Legal Aid lawyer called in by Meg to help with Chrissie and Mick's application for custody of Elizabeth (194) and seen again when the appeal is heard and granted (197). Also helps Michelle Parks, when Jim asks Meg if she can recommend a solicitor (210).Interviewing Nancy after her husband's "disappearance" (592-593)Paul Reid's son, introduced in (88) after his father has rescued him from a police station where he has been taken for borrowing his father's car without consent. He leaves home and stays with friends and is arrested when the police raid the house as Sharon Gilmour visits to deliver drugs (90). He is put on a good behaviour bond (94) but breaks it when he attacks teh boyrfiend of Sally Blakely, one of his co-defendants at the trial.

He finds a job in Adelaide working in a garage and takes his father along as a partner (132).Treats Helen Smart for snakebite (433).Spud's mum (373). Maxine calls on her after her sister Pauline shops her for the payroll snatch she and Spud do.A mysterious credit in (522) - neither the actress nor the character appear in this episode.Director of the production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" starring Rodney and Alison (684).Admitted to Wentworth in a wheelchair accused of poisoning her husband. It turns out she suffers from psychosomatic paralysis. She accuses Joan of molesting her, but Joan tricks her into showing that she is physically capable of walking (368-372).Remand prisoner charged with smuggling drugs but claiming to have been set up by her boyfriend Joe (141). Her father Bob visited her and was concerned for her safety as the real drug dealers had made threats to kill her to keep her quiet. An attempt to shoot her in the prison grounds leads to Meg being shot instead. Further attempts to get her are made by Kath Leach who has been paid by the dealers to fix Tracey. She is eventually transferred to Barnhurst when her father Bob is about to marry Meg Morris (158). Tracey gets special permission to attend the wedding (165). When Bea is transferred to Barnhurst, the writers must have realised they would have to deal with the fact that Tracey was there, and gave her a small part in the "magic mushrooms" plot and put her in the same cell as Bea, but she is as wet and wimpy as ever and it might have been better if they hadn't bothered (197)-(198). When she returns years later, having learnt nothing about staying away from dodgy boyfriends, the part is played by another actress.Meg's stepdaughter played this time by a different actress. She visits Meg unexpectedly to hide out with her boyfriend Mark Sanders after they have done a TAB robbery. She cons both Meg and her boyfriend, leaving him to hold Meg at gunpoint while she goes to empty Meg's savings account and disappear (463)-(464).Daughter of Bob and Marnie Taylor, the couple who foster Shane (514). Shane and Tracey do not get on (516) and Joan has to be called in to talk to Shane.The little girl Joan befriends while she is in hospital and tells her not to worry about her operation (538). When Joan returns to see how she got on, she is told that Tracy died.She is mentioned in (412) as the second mystery disappearance when David Bridges is helping to "free" the women in his own individual way. Presumably it is meant to be her hand we see when Lizzie stumbles across two corpses under a pile of leaves in the grounds in (416). There is however a background prisoner (possibly a familiar face?) who appears in two scenes in (411) then "disappears" - maybe this was intended to be her?Has to restrain Merle when she takes a liking to a cardboard robot in a supermarket on a day out (663).Nephew of Miss McBride, the old lady who takes in Franky and Doreen when they are on the run. He sees through their unconvincing claim to be nuns and shops them to the police (17).
