"I've been around the station a few times."
―Doris Thatcher

Police Constable Doris Thatcher is the only female police officer in the Sandford Police Service.

She is first met when PC Nicholas Angel arrives in Sandford and is touring the Sandford Police Station. Given the fact she makes numerous sexual innuendo's during all her appearances, it can be assumed she has a reputation in Sandford for being promiscuous. During the shootout near the end of the film, Thatcher dons riot gear and prepares to arrest Nick and Danny, but is convinced not to when Angel explains how the NWA has brainwashed the officers into believing all their murders were accidents. She joins their side and fights against the Neighbourhood Watch Alliance at Somerfield, providing cover with Tony Fisher whilst the others ram the meat counter with shopping trolleys. She later saves Angel's life, incapacitating a knife wielding Tina with a wet floor sign.


  • Her surname, Thatcher, is likely a reference to Margaret Thatcher, the first female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. This is reinforced by Doris being the only female police officer in Sandford.
  • She wears a bra that's made into looking like naked breasts over her uniform.
