Character Bio

Matt Ryan photo
Detective Sergeant Matt Ryan is a fictional character from the Australian Crime series City Homicide. He appeared in the debut episode "In The Hands Of Giants", and has appeared in every episode since.

It was shown in the first season that his mother disappeared when he was a teenager and his father, who lives with him, was clearly driven insane by this. It is also clear that he is attracted to colleague Jennifer Mapplethorpe.

In the Final episode of Season 1 "Raising the Dead", the case centres around the body of a woman found in a construction park. This is later revealed as Matt's Mother, who disappeared when he was a teenager.

In Season 2 episode "Somersaulting Dogs" it is reveladed that Matt has a new girlfriend called Emma, whom he met at salsa classes.

Since then, Emma and Matt have moved in together. The relationship has issues, as highlighted in season 4, episode 4, where Emma and Matt have a fight at his work. This comes directly after the episode before, where he forgot about her dinner party, and stayed back at work instead. He also neglected to call. In season 4, episode 7, Matt states that he delayed taking the sergeant exam for Emma, but now intends to sit the exam as she has left for France.
