List of Appearances

Detective Sergeant James 'Jim' Rutherford was a character in The Bill. He was DC Stevie Moss' ex-DS when she was at the GMP's SO10 division. He appeared in the Too Hot To Handle three part series in December 2008. He came from Manchester to investigate Rob Towler, who Stevie sighted whilst she was on an operation against passport fraudsters with DS Stuart Turner. He gets on well with Stuart but Stevie explains to Stuart that Rutherford threatened Stevie that he would hurt Stuart if Stevie revealed Rutherford's illegal involvement with a Manchester gang, the Thameside Crew, who wanted Towler dead. DCI Meadows worked with Stuart, Stevie and DI Manson to arrest Rutherford by telling him Stevie and Towler were at a warehouse. SO19 swooped in and Rutherford and the key players of the gang were arrested.
