One of the unsung heroes of The Bill is balding, glowering DC Terry Perkins, played by Bruce Byron. He\'s one
of the few characters with that convincing, old-school, hard-nut copper air about him (Jack Meadows is another).
The trouble is, he has to answer to flash-boy DS Max Carter and tonight the two come to blows as they try to
catch a pair of car-jackers who also stabbed a woman. DI Sam Nixon is not happy at their fisticuffs, as you
can tell by the veins standing out a mile on her neck, but in a cunning piece of man management she keeps them
shackled together anyway. (We always knew Sam was officer material.)
