Mini Bio (1)

Billy Murray has entertained British Television audiences for over thirty years.

He is perhaps best known for his role as DS Don Beech in ITV series The Bill (1984), and has also appeared in EastEnders (1985) as the crime boss "Johnnie Allen".

His on-screen presence is very much underrated and thanks to his charismatic manner Murray has always given convincing edge and depth to the characters he portrays.

He was set to play Derek "Del Boy" Trotter in Only Fools and Horses.... (1981) but was replaced at the last minute by David Jason due to conflicting production schedules.

Pick any popular mainstream long lived British drama or comedy over the past two decades and you will probably find that Billy Murray has had guest-starring roles in most of them at one time or another.

He is the father of actress Jaime Murray, who plays the gorgeous Stacie in the runaway hit drama Hustle (2004) on BBC 1.
