DI Stuart Turner made his first appearance on 27 October 2008. He is portrayed by Ray MacAllan.


Stuart first arrived in Walford along with Kenny Morris after Max Branning reported a burglary at his home. He made his first appearance on 27 October and his last on 11 November 2008.

After Sergeant Morris found bullet holes in the wall, Max said that they were the work of his brother Jack Branning. This however turned out to be a ploy of his in order to prevent Jack moving away to France with Max's wife Tanya Branning and their three children. As a result, Jack was arrested for attempted murder, but was later released due to lack of evidence. The gun had been found by Turner, however he later met Jack and handed the gun over to him, as he had respect for him as a former police officer.

He later appeared after Max was mowed down by a moving car. He was worried about being discovered for giving Jack the gun, but Jack assured him that he was safe. However things got worse for him when Samantha Keeble turned up and announced that she was taking over the case of the Branning brothers' feud. After Tanya confessed to the hit and run and later refused bail, Jack enlisted DI Turner to help find the witness of Max's hit-and-run. He was reluctant, but after being blackmailed by Jack over his involvement with the "missing" gun, he relented and later revealed that the witness was Stacey Slater.
