|Yorkie Smith||Service Record|
Tony 'Yorkie' Smith was Yorkshire-born, Yorkshire-bred; a big, strapping lad who wasn't afraid of physical confrontation. He had his fair share of scrapes and bruises in the line of duty, but was used to the rough and tumble - it came with rugby playing he did every weekend. Yorkie also had a sensitive side - he always took things to heart and was often upset by the occasional moral grey areas in which he found himself working.
Barely recovered from being slashed whilst infiltrating a gang of soccer hooligans, Yorkie stumbled across a seemingly routine road traffic accident - but with fatalities, two feuding drivers and no back-up, he rapidly lost control of the situation. Admitting that he had struggled to cope, this once dependable officer decided to leave the Force and go into the security business. However he became restless and rejoined the police, and by 1991 had risen to become a DC in his homeland of South Yorkshire.
Yorkie Smith appeared the the first episode, "Funny Ol' Business - Cops & Robbers". His last episode was "Leaving", although he returned for two guest appearances, in "Rites" (for PC Melvin's funeral) and "Breakout" (escorting a prisoner back to South Yorkshire).
