PC Danesh Patel

PC Dinesh Patel is a character in The Bill.

PC Dinesh Patel came from a large, close-knit, Hindu family. He had a happy religious upbringing and his parents instilled him with a clear sense of right and wrong. Joining the police was never a 'calling', but he thrived working as part of a team and knew that he would enjoy the camaraderie of the relief. Patel was often the subject of wind-ups from fellow officers, but it was never an issue for him - he saw it as a way of cementing his place in the team. He was a polite, efficient and conscientious cop, if a little young and impressionable.

In 2019, Sonesh Sira shared his memories of making The Bill in a rare interview for The Bill Podcast.
