- In Season 8 he is temporarily assigned to Thomas Brackenreid's position and walks in on William and Julia almost kissing. He seems to be taking his job lightly again, but is good-natured and humorous.
- With a rare Scottish surname, Hamish's father is of Scottish descent and his mother, Dóra Slorach, is Hungarian, which comes in useful during an investigation.

- Detective Hamish Slorach visits Station House No. 4, revealing to Brackenreid that he is retiring from the force and wants him to say a speech at the party. However, Slorach soon falls victim to one of the "copycat murder schemes". Fortunately he lives through it, but not unscathed.

- Slorach meets Ray and Goldie Huckabee at the Murdoch Home, where his credo to never refuse food (of any kind) has William entertaining them without Julia; Later, this includes his dog, "Oh, let him go, it's not like he could get lost in here."
