DS Vik Singh is a character in The Bill.
Vik Singh was boyish, cocky, talented, charming, and too bright for his own good. He never really did what he was told, or played by the rules, but usually managed to get away with it. He arrived at Sun Hill in 2000 in the aftermath of the Don Beech Scandal as Geoff Daly's replacement. There was a touch of Webb about him - and Webb loathed him for the way in which he drew attention to himself, performing, trying it on, chancing it. Stealing Webb's thunder, in fact. Despite his effervescent manner, Singh was more substantial than he appeared. He was great in a crisis, when he stopped messing about and focused. He was heavily into IT and gifted at the technological side of intelligence-based policing. Coming from Barton Street, he had built up an eclectic and sizeable portfolio of contacts with the local youth and ethnic community, on which Meadows often depended.
In 2002 when racial taunts became too much for Singh, he assaulted known white supremacist Jeff Simpson which indirectly led to the murder of Chief Inspector Conway and a full scale race war. Confronted with the truth, DCI Meadows suspended him from duty pending an investigation from CIB but Vik resigned but not before a furious Meadows told him that he had let him, his colleagues, the public and Conway down. He also told Vik that he was weak enough to take Simpson seriously. He was last seen being taunted by Simpson outside the station witnessed by Danny Glaze and Mickey Webb.
