Played by Reece Douglas
Denzil worshipped his criminal big brother, Earl – an unhealthy relationship which resulted in Denzil carrying the can for Earl’s psychotic behaviour and spending a period in a Young Offenders Institute.
Denzil struggled to adjust to Waterloo Road and has behavioural problems which are a result of his chaotic family environment and having always been labelled ‘thick’ by peers and adults alike. Far from being stupid though, he’s actually very bright, in his own cheeky way. Denzil sometimes struggles to fit in and often finds himself ‘playing the big man’ but it’s all an act and he’s soft as marshmallow on the inside.
