WPC Claire "Lulu" Baines (Jemma Hines) (Dust Thou Art, A Death in the Family, The Cave Woman - Under Dark Stars): WPC Claire "Lulu" Baines is not the brainiest officer - in fact, she's quite ditzy. Initially, she's only the go-between between CID and uniform, but Dalziel soon grows to realise that she has her uses, and begins to use her initiative more and more. Although not as outstanding as her equal-ranking colleagues in the field, Lulu has the ambition to learn and grow within her duties as an officer. Although Dalziel is blunt and informs her she has absolutely no chance of ever joining CID, Lulu is hopeful that one day, when Dalziel retires, his successor will be a little more lenient and forthcoming.
