Character History

Max Carter transferred to Sun Hill from CO19, he was a Sergeant and served as Acting Inspector; there, he was involved in two separate lethal shootings of suspects which one of the shootings was Thomas Jankowski. Although both were justified killings, it was deemed the most sensible decision to make to transfer him out given current media attention to armed response incidents and as the move was accompanied by a promotion to Detective Sergeant, the career-minded Max was happy with the change of scene from Machine Guns to CID...

However on his first day at Sun Hill, DI Samantha Nixon was expecting a new DS about as much as DC Terry Perkins was; later that morning, Terry was called into her office and partnered with Max as "His DC for the day" it was revealed recently that he is half Polish as his mother is Polish, and he speaks the language fluently...

After an undercover operation with DC Mickey Webb in 2009, where the officers were forced to take cocaine to keep their cover, Max became a drugs addict, frequently taking it and having recently been seen forking over large amounts of money to cocaine dealers. His addiction was discovered by Mickey, who informed Sergeant Jo Masters and Terry. Terry then gave Max an ultimatum: turn himself in to DI Neil Manson that he was using drugs on duty, or he himself would arrest Max for possession which would end his career.
