Jackie Malton

Ex detective, story consultant, writer, addiction counsellor, with a taste for the darkness of life.

Jackie Malton is a UK television script consultant and former senior detective best known for being the inspiration for the character of DCI Jane Tennison in the Prime Suspect drama written by Lynda La Plante. Jackie brings realism and authenticity to the story telling process. La Plante describes her as ‘the most important person I have ever met’ and the late Clare Raynor personified Jackie as ‘a crime writer’s dream’.
