List of Appearances

Paul Riley is a character from The Bill.

With less charisma than the average police baton, Paul Riley blended in so well on his arrival at Sun Hill from Barton Street that few people knew he was there. Laid back to the point of being almost comatose, Riley was a London born Irishman. He definitely looked and initially came across as a simple, good-looking, macho guy. His hobbies included the gym, martial arts and sword collecting, and it was true that he had very conventional attitudes towards gender - he seemed to really believe that men were the protectors, and that women were the fairer sex. But in fact he was not an unreconstructed lad at all. At heart he was a very gentle person and family man - part of a large, close-knit, locally based family who owned a small business. Their values, albeit somewhat simplistic, were closer to the Knights of the Round Table than Conan the Barbarian. Paul wasn't the brightest and he lacked guile or political sophistication, so he was often an easy target for McAllister's wiles. Tragically, Riley was one of the casualties of the Sun Hill fire when race riots got out of hand.
