Character Bio

PC Tony Stamp photo
P.C. Tony Stamp has always been a fundamentally decent person. When his father's care becomes too much of a financial burden for him to bear with a policeman's salary alone, Tony takes on a second job as a taxicab driver to fund his father's care. After accidentally killing a pedestrian in a car chase, Tony goes on trial for vehicular manslaughter. He is forced to face a court trial and a police disciplinary hearing, but manages to keep both his job and his position as driver of Sun Hill's area car. Later, Tony is the subject of an accusation of sexual harassment from a young lad called Lee Dwyer. The allegations are false, but the longevity of the investigation, and the public's reaction to the possibility leaves him reeling. It also damages his hitherto unbroken friendship with Jim Carver. When P.C. Yvonne Hemmingway is under suspension of police brutality, and facing a murder trial for killing a thug with her ASP, Tony hesitates before using his own ASP when confronted by some youths and in that split second they launch a vicious assault on him that leaves him fighting for his life. Yvonne is later acquitted. Tony has been happy as a PC for over twenty years, preferring what he considers the real work of directly catching criminals. He is strong, so other officers are happy to have him watching their backs. Later on, Tony's position is threatened by his new Superintendent John Heaton. He assigns Tony and Reg Hollis to investigate a case concerning a missing dog. Tony and Reg, however, prove their worth when they uncover a murder that had previously been undetected and arrest the culprit. Tony departs from Sun Hill in November 2009. Tony tells Smithy that he has accepted another job at Hendon as an Advanced Driving Police Instructor and he leaves Sun Hill.
