Character Bio

P.C. Reg Hollis photo
P.C. Reg Hollis is officially introduced at Sun Hill in October 1984, and is gradually perceived as a loner; the unpopular oddball of the relief, who spends most of his time carrying out light duties such as serving as the station's collator and Federation representative. Reg however tires of being behind a desk and requests to be assigned on foot patrols. He proves to be a capable officer, on one of his early outings from the station he charges into a hostage situation and disarms a potentially dangerous gunman. Reg is a loner for most of his time at Sun Hill; however, an unlikely friendship-buddy pairing with Des Taviner changes him, and gives him more social confidence. Upon Des's arrival at Sun Hill, Des and Reg are paired up in the area car, which sees the beginning of a friendship that provides some of character's most memorable moments. It is truly a turning point when Reg, who was always so uptight, accompanies Des when he skips work to take a trip in the area car across the UK, attempting to convince Reg to propose to his Asian girlfriend. Des is well known for referring to Reg as "Reggie babe" in his Scouse accent; Des being the only person to call him this. After it is discovered that Des is responsible for The Sun Hill fire in 2002 which killed many of the officers, he goes on the run for a short while, and at one point he contacts Reg to apologise for everything. Reg responds telling him that he is a coward, and it should be the families of those he killed he should have been apologising to. Minutes later, armed police have Des surrounded, and Reg arrests him. Later on that afternoon, Des is beaten to death in his cell by a manic depressive, ending his relationship with Reg on bad terms. Shortly after Des's death, Reg receives a video tape that Des made immediately prior to going on the run. It's Des's last attempt to apologise to Reg for dragging him into the mess. Reg, as he finishes his drink, forgives Des's memory. In 2003, Reg began a relationship with Marilyn Chambers, Sun Hill's Front Desk Officer at the time. After dating for a few months, Reg plans to propose to her at the railway station where he had taken her on their first date, where Reg discovered she was actually interested in his hobby of trainspotting. While Reg is waiting at the railway station for Marilyn to arrive she is killed in The Sun Hill Fire in 2005. Reg is deeply upset by her death, and he finds her replacement very hard to swallow while he is grieving. Reg's position was later threatened by Superintendent John Heaton. Tony Stamp urges him to change his approach to policing. Reg, however, refuses to compromise on his principles and says, "if Superintendent Heaton's idea of running an efficient nick is to get rid of anyone over 30, I'm not sure I want to work for him". Heaton started to realise how much respect and loyalty Reg receives from his colleagues. Following June Ackland's departure, Reg considers tendering his resignation; however Tony is able to convince him not to. Reg resigned from the force following Emma Keane's death in the terrorist bombs in Sun Hill in May 2008.
