DS Phil Hunter arrived at Sun Hill in July 2002, shortly after the events of the Sun Hill Fire as a replacement for DS Vik Singh, who resigned a few weeks before. He was a legend in his own mind, always appearing as a maverick. Phil almost lost his job when he started arresting major drug dealers on the Bronte, which started a near riot, and also saw a dealer's brother kidnapped after a failed attempt which was interrupted by new Superintendent Adam Okaro, who was not impressed because his daughter witnessed it.
Phil later almost lost his job due to his relationship with a major villain, Ron Gregory. He also compromised a major operation but only avoided CIB when Gregory put a hit out on Phil and wife Cindy.
Phil was caught in a tunnel with DS Samantha Nixon when they were being pursued by an angry villain, Dennis Weaver, who thought that Phil's daughter was his. During the ordeal, Phil was shot but managed to get Weaver's pistol, and after a situation escalated, Phil was forced to shoot Weaver.
After a fight with DS Stuart Turner in CID, Phil was seconded to uniform to cover for June Ackland, who'd just retired. However, this secured a secondment to Specialist Crimes to cover for DC Grave Dasari, who was seconded to CID for an unexplained workplace mishap.
In 2007, after a fiasco with a casino owner, Louis Dreyfuss (Michael Brandon), Phil was forced to rob the casino by gunmen working for Louis' wife, Monica, who surprisingly enough, Phil had embarked on a one night stand with.
A few weeks later after smashing a drug ring, Specialist Crime DC Grace Dasari decided she wanted to transfer to Sun Hill following her secondment, so when Phil told Specialist Crimes, they offered him a post as a DS, so he took it and transferred away from Sun Hill.
