Wendy Scott (Helen Noonan)

Receptionist at Wentworth. The same actress had appeared previously credited as Receptionist, and (41) is the first time she is named in the credits. Her next credits as Wendy are in (158) and (189) though it's hard to see what she does in these episodes that's so special that it deserves a credit. Her first credit as Wendy Scott is in (219) when she trains Alison Page to work in reception. She is used in storylines at a much later date when she has an affair with Steve Fawkner (275).

Wendy Stone (Vivien Davies)

Short prisoner with wild hair (and teeth) supporting Lou Kelly together with Faye Donnelly during the riots. She is first seen in (598), and bashes Julie badly in (600), which results in Julie and Dr. Steve becoming invloved when he gives her medical attention. When the riots ended Wendy and Faye got transfered to D-Block and never returned (601).

Taking part in the raid on Freddie de Young's flat (393).

Wilkinson, Granny (Esme Melville)

William Bremner (Hugh Halliday)

The prosecuting lawyer in Eve's trial. David Adams discusses the evidence with him in (577).

Willie Beecham (Kirsty Child)

One of the prisoners transferred to Wentworth after the fire at Barnhurst (537). She seems to make a final appearance (587) but makes surprise re-appearance in (682) as the boss of Centaur Security exacting her revenge on Joan by sacking her and blocking her prospects elsewhere. I'm not sure how her surname should be spelt, so I've settled on the simplest option. I still feel that even if this had been the spelling on her birth certificate, Willie would have changed it to "Beauchamp".

Blackmoor prisoner sent with Spike to find Bongo, and returns to warn Rita that two officers are coimng through an underground tunnel (667).

Yemil Bakarta (Maria Mercedes)

Originally inducted as Jane Doe, because she refuses to give her name. Her origin is never spelt out - perhaps she is meant to be Turkish and by implication Muslim? The question of her religion is handled rather nervously - she is certainly willing to fight to protect her "prayer book" and scratches Lou's face when she makes a move. She is jailed for causing a death in a car accident while escaping from husband (504). In her despair she is about to hang herself, but is stopped by Pixie (507). When Frank Burke rips her prayer book, she trashes his cell, and knocks out Dennis when he discovers her (514). Judy takes the blame for the attack. Myra effects a reconciliation with her husband Ahmed and she is bailed out of prison by him (516). After her release, she writes to clear Judy of the attack on Dennis (532).

Yobbo (Tibor Gyapjas)

Young Man (Andrew Buchanan)

Marilyn Mason's friend, who tries to persuade her to go back on the game (9).

A schoolgirl living in the house next door to Val when Bea is on the run. She notices Bea and becomes intrigued by her (34). When Yvonne throws a noisy party while her parents are away at which some of the young people are smoking pot, Bea breaks it up, and out of spite Yvonne reports Bea's whereabouts to the police (35). Note the surname of the actress here: she must be Val Lehman's real-life daughter, although Terry Bourke's notoriously unreliable book only mentions that Val Lehman's other daughter Cassie (Cassandra) appeared in early 1979 episodes as a "teen drug-addict" - which possibly means as Bea's daughter Debbie in the flashback first seen in episode (2).

Zach Ward, Rev (Laurie Dobson)

At the Sunday service which Alice uses as a dating service to get closer to Harry (680).

Zara Moonbeam (Ilona Rodgers)

Fraudulent psychic with unconvincing 'Yorkshire' (or possibly Lancashire?) accent. Used by Nola as part of plot to drive Bea mad with messages from the beyond from her daughter Debbie. The campaign climaxes with a set-up Ouija board session which spells out the name of Debbie's best friend at school, which Joan Ferguson found out from Debbie's friend Kerry Jacobs (362-370).
