List of Appearances

PC Malcolm Haynes is a character in The Bill.

PC Haynes was one of the first Black police officers to serve at Sun Hill, following the Met's big drive to recruit officers from ethnic minorities in the early eighties. He was born and raised in the Notting Hill/Ladbroke Grove area of West London and had pounded the beats in some of the more volatile of the Met’s Divisions, including a posting at Brixton during the Summer of ‘81. Haynes was street-smart and energetic; this combined with his enthusiastic nature made him a highly-effective copper. He also had a great sense of humour.

Frazer told Haynes that he had the potential to go for sergeant but he wondered whether it would simply be an empty gesture as part of the Met.'s black recruitment drive. He was shocked by the shooting of his erstwhile partner, Pete Ramsey. He decided to go for promotion and left Sunhill to take his Sergeant exams.

Actor Eamonn Walker shared memories of his time on The Bill and of his career as a whole in an interview for The Bill Podcast released in 2018.
