Can we assume that this character is Police Sergeant (Peter Foster)? Notdoppler 22:37, September 19, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think we can assume anything with regards to any minor characters who firstly appear as unnamed and then get re-cast in a similar role as a named character. (I've noticed that several pages have been redirected for this purpose). Unless the character is given a name in dialogue then I think it's wrong to make the assumption that the two are linked. However, my suggestion would be exactly what's written on the bottom of this particular character's page, which hints that they might be one in the same, but not evidently clear. --Karen2310 22:57, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
I think if both sergeants appeared within a few months of each other wouldn't this most likely mean that the producers planned him to be the same character? I definitely think if an actor is credited as the same minor role (e.g. credited as doctor twice), then they should be assumed to be the same. For example, Paramedic (Kate Baines)'s appearances are obviously all the same character. Notdoppler 23:03, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
The example you've given there, yes, agreed - one actor playing a recurring role of an unnamed character - the page set up as Paramedic (Kate Baines)... however, I'm not sure an unnamed nurse who appeared in two episodes in December 1999 should be redirected to Nurse Cooper - a character played by the same actor in April 2002. --Karen2310 23:23, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
