The Detective was the sidekick of the Chief Inspector. He was played by British author and master of modern horror Neil "Scary Trousers" Gaiman in the 2007 special episode, "The Previous Inspector", which he also co-wrote with Alan Moore.

"The Previous Inspector"Edit

When the Tenth Inspector returns to the planet Terra Omega to follow up on an earlier investigation into local mafia activity, he is apprehended by the Chief Inspector and the Detective. Since they do not believe he could be the Inspector from their records, they arrest him on charges of impersonating a police officer and take his (undefined) powers away from him. When Constable Reggie proves that he had been framed by the gangsters, they give them back again.
