    She never had any speaking lines, never had any fellow cast member address her by name or even talk to her. She was never listed in the credits. But I saw her in almost every episode, in roll call, in the precinct, and you couldn't help but notice her. Any idea her name? http://oi65.tinypic.com/15wfaf9.jpg

    It might be Nell Carter.

    Uh, sorry but no way! Nell was 4'11", and this lady was much taller, also different facial features. And Nell was the star of Gimme A Break the time Hill Street was on the air, on talks shows often, and there was no mention of this second role anywhere.

    No, wrong role. Alfre played the mother of a son shot by a police officer. And she is no way near as large as the one I described above.

    Can anyone be serious? The mysterious lady is not some more well-known actress from another series. Not Mabel King, not Theresa Merritt or anyone else who a simple check on Wikipedia would verify.
