Scotland Yard Section Director Alec Drummond and Superintendant Quinlan are allies to Clouseau in "The Pink Panther Strikes Again" and "Trail of the Pink Panther". They are played by Colin Blakely and Leonard Rossiter respectively.
After much suffering, as well as extreme physical injury, Quinlan becomes increasingly frustrated by Clouseau's escapades during the case of the missing professor. In "Trail of the Pink Panther" Clouseau meets the two men to investigate the missing Pink Panther diamond, although here he is shown to meet them for the first time. This is because the footage was actually deleted footage from the other film.
Quinlan was killed by operatives of Project Wideawake. He and Charwoman ambushed them, and were killed in the firefight that followed.
