Mary Halford was the wife of Jack Halford, a Detective Chief Inspector for the Metropolitan Police Service. In 1998 she was murdered by Ricky Hanson after running her over down in his car - Jack never truly got over her death, talking to her grave as if she was still alive.


  • She met Jack Halford, whom she would later marry, at Brighton Park on 5th August 1961 - she wore a pink dress, matching the candy floss that Jack had bought her.[5]
  • It is unknown who portrayed Mary Halford - presumably due to the fact she only appears on-screen briefly in Wicca Work as a hallucination of Jack Halford.
  • In Tiger Tiger, Jack mentions Mary was dying which makes it unclear whether she was terminally ill prior to getting murdered by Ricky Hanson.
