Hood, KateComment

Played Rita Connors' competition for top dog throughout the 600s. For once the character seemed to have more than one dimension to her. At first you thought she would become the same 'middle class woman who hurt a child' and just curl up in a corner and gradually fade away. This didn't happen, and she was named by Rita as Wentworth's new top dog at the end of the series. Recently guested in Blue Heelers with short hair, so was almost unrecognisable, but I don't know the character name.
