Compare and contrast Ransome's treatment of Sammy as a bit of a figure of fun and an ineffective investigator who is flummoxed by his interview with the children on Wild Cat with his dealing with the much more formidable Constable Tedder in Coot Club and The Big Six.
Tedder is treated with respect if not a bit of fear and as a definite authority figure, no mocking or even teasing him. And it is not just the D&Gs whose social position might mean that they would be more intimidated, Tom and the Ds also respect him, even while wondering if he was the villain who cast off the boats.
