He then brings money into Wentworth for Kath (622), which she uses to buy drugs and protection.

Alice Hemmings (Anne Haddy)

Doreen's mother. She is first mentioned in (13) when Doreen is on the run with Franky and tells her the story of her early life - her mother was a "real lady" but she left Doreen with her violent father, who worked as a stablehand. Karen notices Doreen's name on a list of missing persons sent to Angela Jeffries by the Salvation Army, and Erica follows this up while she is on leave by finding out that it is Alice who is trying to trace Doreen. When Erica visits Alice (66), it turns out she is mainly concerned to settle the details of her will, and does not want to see Doreen. A visit to Angela persuades her she ought to visit Doreen in Wentworth, though when she does so, she does not tell Doreen who she is but pretends to be representing the halfway house (67). This is not quite so heartless as it seems, for Alice already knows that she has terminal cancer and does not want to cause Doreen further pain. Doreen only has a short time to get to know her mother, who dies in episode (73) leaving Doreen everything in her will. The house in particular features in plot lines later in the series.

Not long after, she finds someone more suitable at the tennis club and phones Rodney to give him the brush off.

Alison Page (Fay Kelton)

Middle class prisoner in Wentworth from (215) to (228). Possibly the most tedious of any character of this type - even worse than Kerryn or Nancy? She has problems adjusting to life in Wentworth and misses her husband Don and kids Chris and Susan. She is also terrorised by what she sees as threats from the other women, and after a particularly mild "heavying" from Doreen, she tries to kill herself by sticking a metal coathanger into a wall socket, but is saved by Bea. She then gets a quiet job in reception, though only because Bea sees the advantage of having someone under her control with access to the prisoners' files.

Alison Webb (Pat Forbes)

Alister Moody (Jeff Parks)

One of Gloria's lowlife friends, at the party where both she and Kay Desmond are arrested for possession of drugs (438).

Allen, Det. Sgt. (Tim Robertson)

Investigates Bill Jackson's murder (4)

Allen, Det Sgt (Kenneth Goodlet)

However, he is called Detective Sergeant again when he investigates Ros Coulson's escape (74), but he is not listed in the credits. Credited in (90) when he arrests Caroline Simpson and her mother, and mentioned as a witness during her trial (114), but he is not seen.

Alpha Centauri, Rev (Kevin Summers)

Leader of the cult which Helen Smart's sister Sharon joins. He is seen wearing a rather dodgy pearl necklace as a headband and is naturally a total fake. His real name is revealed to be James Blackman (382).

Ambulance Driver (actual) (Michael Bennett)

In the episode where Rachel's father is run over by Trevor Priest (454): a strange credit presumably implying that one actor played the ambulance man and another person actually drove the vehicle?
