List of Appearances


Ken arrives at Sun Hill, shortly after the events of the 2002 fire. Standing out amongst all the officers of CID, Ken's trademark atire usually consists of a tropical-themed Hawaiian shirt. Ken is the man who you would always see with his feet up on the desk; while some might call his style of policing "relaxed", a more appropriate term would be "lazy". His domestic life exhausts him; Ken has children spanning almost a generation, with the youngest eight months and the oldest nineteen years old, with all of them making equal demands of him, whether it be financial or emotional. Somewhere along the line, Ken found himself in a second relationship, and he did not have the heart to end his relationship with either woman. When more kids arrived on the scene, Ken found it harder to secretly play the family man to both families. This explains why Ken sees work as a refuge from his hectic home life.

Upon his arrival at Sun Hill, Ken's unreliable-officer attitude makes its presence felt. Food is always higher on his agenda than policing, and he can often be seen befriending the canteen staff, which he uses to get preferential treatment. Ken can still bring in a collar with the best of them. Ken once makes the mistake of spoiling himself when a large sum of unaccounted money mysteriously turns up in his bank account. He later finds out it had been planted there by DS Phil Hunter, who uses it to keep Ken under his thumb. Forcing him to pay it back, Ken is forced to carry out deeds for him in the meantime, such as trashing the flat of a paedophile. When Ken starts moonlighting as a security guard because of this, he is drawn into a serious crime syndicate, which ends up with him being shot. Upon finding out while in hospital his son has been kidnapped, Ken immediately goes after Hunter.

Ken is always sadistic among his colleagues, When crazed PCSO Colin Fairfax is dismissed from the Force for his racist attitude, Ken is sent to bring him in to the station. Colin retaliates by handcuffing Ken in a petrol-doused van and crashes it into Sun Hill's front office. He dies instantly as the van goes up in flames and his unreliable-officer iron fisted ways at Sun Hill are finally over.
