Jim Fletcher's estranged wife, who first appears in (42) leaning out of a window telling a drunken Jim to shut up or he'll wake the kids. In her early episodes, she seems cast as the stereotyped bitter ambitious wife. She becomes a little more sympathetic after she shows her dislike for Jim's mate Geoff Butler when Jim invites him to dinner (79). She is introduced again when she throws Jim out of the house after she is told about his relationship with Caroline Simpson (105). She almost dies in a bomb blast intended to kill Jim (109). She eventually dies during surgery (110).
Penny Ramsey also played Amy Ryan later in the series.
