Malcolm Davies

Malcolm was born in Ilford on the outskirts of London and from a young age believed his destiny lay with the smell of the greasepaint after appearing as Dr. Bradman in Noel Coward's Blythe Spirit when he was 16.

At the age of 20 he began a thirty-year career with the Metropolitan Police Force and, after three years, joined the Criminal Investigation Department. In 1988 he was first posted as a Detective in Hackney. Malcolm has led high profile reactive and pro-active investigations as well as serving on Borough and Specialist Crime Units, including the Operation Trident gun and gang crime unit and the Technical Surveillance Unit where he managed high-risk covert operations.

Malcolm also holds a Certificate of Education obtained whilst lecturing at the Detective Training School to outside intelligence agencies.

In 2008 an ITV drama about one of Malcolm's high profile investigations was filmed. He found himself assisting the scriptwriter of U Be Dead and advising the actor who portrayed him, David Kennedy. Malcolm has also worked with David Morrisey when he prepared for his role as a Detective Inspector in the Sky 1 Drama Thorne.

Malcolm retired from policing in 2012 with a number of commendations to his name for leadership and detective work. He then undertook a year's method acting course, acquired an agent and hit the ground running. He has appeared in commercials, a number of short films and features and in the play Richard II in London. Since retiring Malcolm has also been writing screenplays and has recently been performing stand up comedy in London.
