List of Appearances

Yvonne Hemmingway was a character in The Bill from 2003 until 2006. Yvonne was Sun Hill's 'larger than life' PC. Her passionate and gutsy approach to life spills over into her police work, preferring to 'take the bull by the horns' rather than just sit back and wait and see. This sometimes backfires on her - but Yvonne is more than willing to suffer a few hard knocks if it means getting a collar.

Yvonne has a dry sense of humour - including a ready bank of cutting retorts to anyone who takes the piss out of her. She can see the funny side of most situations and loves poking fun at others (it's her way of showing affection) but also doesn't mind being the butt of a joke, as long as it is not malicious.

Having transferred from Barton Street, she already knows the area well. She's the kind of cop who gets to know the local criminals/kids/community and uses her knowledge of local people to help her solve cases. She shared a flat with a PC friend from Barton Street and is quite happy being single. Yvonne is a good time gal, she has had a string of boyfriends and when she's not on duty, you'll find her down the pub having a laugh with her mates or showing up the blokes around the pool table.
