List of Appearances

Di Worrell is a character in The Bill.

PC Di Worrell was a people person. She loved a gossip and a laugh and settled easily into the male banter, whilst still remaining very much one of the girls. Few could resist her impish humour and it was not unknown for her to mischievously stir up some gossip to make a shift pass more quickly. Though she could sometimes push things a little too far, Di was a favourite among the relief. As a copper, she was intuitive and good at her job - she usually managed to talk her way out of any confrontation before violence erupted, but if cornered she was tougher than she looked and was more than capable of looking after herself. Born and brought up in East London, the last thing Di wanted when she joined the police was to bump into old friends on the beat so she made sure her first posting was on the other side of London. She was commited to the job, but committed to her family even more so. She warred with maverick cop, Des Taviner on his first shift at Sun Hill (ironically, Des was very close to her son Josh after she died). However, she grew in confidence and felt able to move a little closer to 'home'. In many ways Di was coasting and was never really challenged; as far as she was concerned life was for living not working. She was a single parent with a young son, Josh, and for most of the time kept on top of the demands of parenting combined with her busy job. Di was in CID when the fire at Sun Hill started, and she was tragically killed by the ensuing explosion.
