Practically every actor in the United Kingdom has been in The Bill. The previous statement is a fact.

A scene in The Bill featuring Erin "Mistress Goody" Geraghty, at 7:52.

Another episode with Cliff Barry, this time playing a drug dealer at 4:59 and 1:33, from December 1996 (Series 12).

I think that's all the known guest appearances by KM actors in The Bill, apart from Alec Westwood who I'm beginning to think must have been uncredited, making it a total needle in a haystack! (I'm also not sure if Cliff Barry appeared in a fourth episode or if he just has the wrong character name listed on his CV.)

Starting this Monday, the Drama channel (Freeview 20) will be repeating The Bill from the very beginning, every weekday at midday. A good opportunity to watch out for Knightmare actors if you haven't seen their guest appearances before! These are all the ones I'm aware of:

Series 1 Episode 10 (Burning The Books) - John Woodnutt
Series 4 Episode 31 (Spook Stuff) - Tom Karol
Series 5 Episode 87 (Just A Little Run Around) - Bill Cashmore
Series 5 Episode 99 (Woman In Brown) - David Verrey
Series 6 Episode 6 (A Day Lost) - Lawrence Werber
Series 6 Episode 73 (Body Language) - Bill Cashmore
Series 7 Episode 12 (Night And Day) - John Woodnutt
Series 7 Episode 14 (In Chambers) - Tom Karol
Series 8 Episode 8 (Joyride) - Mark Knight
Series 8 Episode 52 (Up All Night) - Adrian Neil
Series 9 Episode 39 (Double Enmity) - Erin Geraghty
Series 10 Episode 4 (He Who Waits) - Mark Knight
Series 10 Episode 6 (Dealer Wins) - Iona Kennedy
Series 10 Episode 79 (Masquerade) - Bill Cashmore
Series 12 Episode 156 (The Right Thing) - Cliff Barry
Series 14 Episode 89 (Deep End) - Jackie Sawiris
Series 14 Episode 90 (The Party's Over) - Jackie Sawiris
Series 15 Episode 48 (Screwdriver) - dungeoneer Richard Howse
Series 15 Episode 55 (Lola) - Iona Kennedy
Series 18 Episode 13 (Loose Cannon) - Cliff Barry
Series 19 Episode 104 (The Law) - Natasha Pope
Series 23 Episode 25 (End Of The Affair) - David Verrey
Series 26 Episode 3 (Duty Calls) - Cliff Barry

Alec Westwood is also meant to be in an episode from around Series 11 but we don't know which one, so if anybody watches or records these, keep an eye out for him! There are probably others that haven't yet been spotted, too.

They should be available to watch online after broadcast:

Thanks, Annie. This is a useful list. I'm looking forward to seeing John Woodnutt's appearance via UKTV Play a week or so from now.

Presumably if they show episodes post-1992, we'll also get to see the unknown episode which reportedly includes somebody watching Knightmare.

For anyone hoping to catch it on TV, the episode is on this Thursday at midday, and repeated a couple of times on Friday (at 7:10am and 11am). They're calling it Episode 9 because the pilot wasn't shown.

I'm such a huge fan of The Bill and I'm really glad that Drama have been showing it from the start.

My favourite periods were the Don Beech scandal and then the whole of the Tom Chandler era - Definitely Sun Hill's Lord Fear! 8-o

It's great to see the actors pop up in various pre and post Knightmare roles.
