List of Appearances

Nixon was an easygoing DI and was well respected by many of the team and seen as one easy to get on with or even talk to. Her style was simple - she was law-abiding and always did things to the book but at the same time would be stern when necessary. Once appointed as DI alongside Manson it was clear that there was tension between them and it had even been suggested that Neil Manson may have been displeased she was a female and that he felt she was a threat to him. They later worked very well together and despite opposite policing methods came together along with the team to get results.

If there was an issue with her it was intimate work relationships and letting them affect work. Notably Phil Hunter and Stuart Turner who often squabbled over her and seemed in competition. She ended up sleeping with both of them and at times bought rows into the office from rocky patches. However overall she was a good copper and respected for the job she did before she was transferred.

Nixon was very intelligent when it came to policing and was calm, composed and always measured when making tough decisions and would usually produce good and more logical solutions to problems that DI Manson couldn't solve.
