Jackson was formerly a constable at Station House No. 5, first introduced as a big and burly slugger Brackenreid poaches with a transfer in an effort to win the annual baseball game between the houses. A good-natured and dependable copper, Jackson fits right in at Station No. 4. [[spoiler:He's shot along with George and Higgins in the ambush at the end of season 10, and it's revealed he ultimately died of his wounds.

* AmbiguouslyBi: Watts takes an almost immediate shine to both George and Jackson, and insisted on working closely with both. In his introduction episode, he asks Murdoch out to dinner without prompting. He also continually tries to get close to George and keeps complimenting him, eliciting confused looks from Murdoch and Brackenreid. He's the closest thing this show has to a dandy, as he is interested in philosophy, wine, and Broadway, and he wears slightly more stylish suits than the other men on the show. In "Brackenreid Boudoir", he gets his first female love interest; earlier in the same episode he seems either jealous or confused by the sight of Nina kissing George.

* LongLostRelative: After his parents died when he was 12, his 15 year old sister disappeared. [[spoiler:She showed up 15 years later, and it's revealed she ran away because she didn't want to be burdened with raising her younger brother.]]
* ThoseTwoGuys: Him and Jackson were this in season 10.

* ManlyTears: He usually holds his emotions hidden, which makes his tears all the more moving. [[spoiler:His eyes were filled with tears when Julia told him her abortion had left her barren and strongly implied she wanted to end their relationship because she knew about his desire to have a family, and he cried when his sister told him she was dying and going to spend the rest of her life in convent with prayers.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousDisorder: Watts never maintains eye contact for long, is constantly fidgeting with things, has an unusual method of solving crimes, doesn't have many friends and got forced out of Station House One because he wasn't liked enough, is very smart and accomplished for his age (he was already a detective at age 26), and seems to have underdeveloped motor skills (he can't really hold a fork properly and his handwriting is very messy).

* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: Brackenreid manages to qualify for this both by the standards of his own era and the time the show is set in. He disdains Francophone people from Quebec and France as "garlic-eating Frenchies" and despises the Americans qualify him as such by today's standards. His ranting about how "half the world hates the bloody monarchy" in venting his frustrations after dealing with a particularly annoying royal ObstructiveBureaucrat and his ridiculing the idea of eugenics by pointing to a picture of the {{Gonk}} Queen Victoria as why he wants no part of breeding the "best and brightest" qualify him as this by his own era's standards.
