Occupation Police Officer
Title Detective Sergeant

DS Stuart Turner first arrives in Sun Hill as a DC from West End Central but is offered the position of DS at Sun Hill by DCI Jack Meadows over DC Suzie Sim, the only other officer clearly interested in the position. Stuart is a replacement for DS Ramani DeCosta. Stuart is a deeply competitive and highly ambitious detective, but is unpopular with many of his colleagues in Sun Hill CID, particularly DS Phil Hunter, as he is deeply resentful of his relationship with then DS Samantha Nixon. Stuart Turner is confident, up-front and intelligent. He joined the Sun Hill team after a spell at a West End nick. After graduating from university, he initially went into teaching, but the curriculum, day-to-day routine and endless rounds of disciplining unruly kids became tedious. He longed for more of a challenge and when his friend told him he was joining the Met, Stuart signed up too. Deeply competitive, Stuart went on to surpass his mate at Hendon and got his first choice of borough posting. Stuart has worked his way up the ranks quite swiftly. He joined the job and instantly knew that uniform wasn't for him. His strengths always lay in detection and interviewing suspects. He loves nothing more than lulling a suspect into a false sense of security in an interview then delivering the killer question that pulls the rug from under them. Stuart's a natural leader with apparent integrity, and takes an intellectual approach to his work. He always keeps abreast of the latest theories and can quote from psychology journals. However, he doesn't like getting his hands dirty and is happy to leave the arrests to uniform or his DCs – they can break the rules for a collar but shouldn't expect his back-up if it goes pear shaped. Stuart has only had one mentionable relationship since joining Sun Hill, with Samantha Nixon. They quickly become serious, and move in together. When Sam discovers she is pregnant, Stuart is worried about his future, and is relieved when she has a miscarriage, which is the main cause for their breakup. Stuart left Sun Hill with Superintendent John Heaton, after Heaton asked him, DC Walker, and Inspector Weston to join him at his new station.
