List of Appearances

25-year-old Kate Spears was youthful, feminine, pretty, and unorthodox. She was an 'outsider', drafted in from West London, with a couple of years experience of the job. Initially people wondered how she got away with it on any level: a dedicated clubber, a party girl, Spears came across at first like an airhead who should have been working in a club. But she was far from innocent, ingenuous, or a soft touch. Spears was bold, confident, passionate and quick to dissipate the girly image when expressing her commitment to the job.

Of course, her looks and style got in the way sometimes, generating unwelcome assumptions. But Spears herself was uncompromising, and ultimately a rebel. There was a grittiness behind the smile, which derived from a difficult and violent family background. Perhaps that was why she and Webb came to develop an understanding. Her looks did not go unnoticed by Chandler and they embarked on a dangerous affair before Spears died in hospital following the petrol bomb attack on Sun Hill.
