Full Name
Played By
The Cross Keys Inn, Grimpen, Dartmoor, England, UK

Billy is the chef at 'The Cross Keys Inn', which he runs with his partner Gary. They've been so busy of late with all the monster hunters. It doesn't take much these days, one mention on Twitter and the tourists come flooding in. It plays havoc on the WKD stocks, they keep running out.

They've been ordering an awful lot of meat from their suppliers 'Undershaw Meat Supplies' too recently, considering they have a vegetarian restaurant. If anyone cared to look, they'd find their records went back nearly two months, that's when they had the idea, when the TV show went out about Henry Knight's demon hound.

What with the monster and the prisoner though, he doesn't know how they sleep at nights. Gary says he sleeps like a baby, but that's not true, he's a snorer! Wonder if that nice couple down from London have the same problem with each other?

Then there was that scary Inspector from Scotland Yard asking questions about their dog. They kept it in the old mine shaft not far away, it was all right there, but they couldn't control it. It was vicious, so about a month ago Billy took it to the vet to have it put down. They had no choice, so it's over… honest.
