Misty Moon Presents The Bill Reunion 5

Sat 6 Jun 2020 @ 16:00 · Events

The Bill logo After the enormous success of The Bill Reunions, the boys and girls of Sun Hill are coming back to The Cinema Museum for a very special celebration. 2020 marks the 10 year anniversary of The Bill being taken off our screens and at Misty Moon we are marking this date in style with more guests and a longer Q&A.

The Bill - Graham ColeGraham Cole OBE played PC Tony Stamp in The Bill from 1984 to 2009 for 25 years. Graham has appeared in numerous episodes of Doctor Who playing a Marshman, a Cyberman and Melkur during the 1980s. He also made regular appearances on Noel’s House Party.

Graham also narrated the police video “Police Stop”. Recently he has been treading the boards and touring the country in different productions. Graham also has a one man show “So You Think You Know Me…” that Misty Moon has produced.

The Bill - Andrea MasonAndrea Mason is a British actress who played W.P.C. Debbie Keane in The Bill from 1995 to 1998. She has guest starred in Clocking Off (2000), Holby City (1999-2003), William and Mary (2003), Emmerdale (2014) and Doctors (2001-17). In 2019, Andrea shared memories of her life and career in a rare interview for The Bill Podcasts.

WPC Debbie Keane joined Sun Hill from Hendon along with classmate Nick Slater but soon emerged as the more promising of the two. She had tried a number of different jobs, including Leisure Centre Assistant and Outward Bound Instructor, but until becoming a police officer, nothing had really satisfied her. Debbie was attractive, fit, vivacious and not a complainer. She met any challenge with vigour and enthusiasm. Not afraid to assert herself physically, she could also hold her own in a scrap. Debbie’s cheery manner could be infectious and she was definitely somebody you’d want on your side. Her attitude marked her out as a natural leader, but needing to be tempered by experience. Confident and ambitious, Debbie was encouraged by her senior officers to try for her sergeant’s exams – she’d certainly found her niche in the Met. She left the station in 1998 after transferring to Stafford Row to become the new Sergeant.

The Bill - Suzanne MaddockSuzanne Maddock played WPC Cass Rickman – Suzanne appeared in The Bill as PC Cass Rickman from 1999 to 2002. Her character was killed off in the highly rated Sun Hill Serial Killer storyline.

Before The Bill, Suzanne had previously appeared as Janet Frazer in the BBC drama Hetty Wainthropp Investigates, starring opposite Dominic Monaghan and Patricia Routledge. She was in 10 episodes between 1997 and 1998. Suzanne has also guest starred in Casualty, Silent Witness, and appeared in the films Land and Freedom (1995) and Stella Does Tricks (1996).

WPC Cass Rickman had already been in the force for six years before coming to Sun Hill. Transferring to the Met gave Cass her first chance to live away from home and she arrived at the station full of such tremendous energy and enthusiasm that some of the older stalwarts of the squad found it both exhausting and annoying. However, with her quick wit and lively nature, she rapidly made friends. Her greatest fault was her lack of tact – she tended to open her mouth before thinking, and put her foot straight in it. But her redeeming blunt honesty and openness made it hard for anyone to take offence for too long.

Cass loved her job and took pride in doing it well. She arrived at Sun Hill determined to make her mark. Tragically, Cass met her untimely end as the final victim of the Sun Hill Serial Killer in late 2002, much to the devastation of all her colleagues and friends, especially her dearest friend, P.C. Nick Klein who sadly missed the opportunity to tell her about his true feelings for her.

The guests will take part in a meet and greet with the audience and a paid signing after the Q&As.

More guests to be announced over the coming months.

Doors open at 18.30, for a 19.30 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
