Ashes to Ashes (UK)

DCI Gene Huntis back but he's no longer the self-styled "Sheriff of Manchester". Flanked by his faithful sidekicks, Ray Carling and Chris Skelton, and drawn to the action and intrigue of the London Met, Gene turns his attentions to taking on the "southern nancy" criminal scum. DI Alex Drake appears to change the crew.

Character Bio

Gene Hunt photo
Transferred from GMP February 1980 after a prolific 12 year period at A-Division Manchester. Reasons for transfer remain personal but I suspect DCI Hunt felt that after the break-up of his marriage and the untimely death of his long-serving Detective Inspector, Sam Tyler, that his tenure in the North had reached its natural conclusion. Relocated to the Met bringing with him two of the officers from his division.

I welcome this in the spirit of a cross-pollination of experiences and ideas between forces that is so encouraged by our incumbent Chief Commissioner. DCI Hunt is a shining example of the "doer". A proactive officer who instils a strong sense of loyalty from his subordinates even if at times he fails to show due deference to his seniors. To be blunt, DCI Hunt can be a cheeky bastard with a defiant stare that I once noticed in a Labrador of my wife's. Said Labrador (Suki) was eventually destroyed when she bit me on the hand.

I am glad to say that no such fate will befall DCI Hunt provided he realises that he is not a lone maverick but part of a team. A club if you will. Or indeed a fraternity. The sooner he accepts this, the better. A tendency to apprehend with violent prejudice. Provided his charge sheet remains healthy, I am prepared merely to observe such activity at this time. But DCI Hunt must understand that the Metropolitan Police Force is under public and federal scrutiny as never before.

Hobbies appear to be drinking and darts, neither of which interferes with his work as a senior CID officer.
