In the Miss Marple short story Ingots of Gold, Inspector Badgworth is a Scotland Yard detective. He was sent from London to the Cornish village of Polperran to investigate the disappearance of gold bullion from the ship Otranto which had run aground on rocks off the coast. Badwgorth met Raymond West on the train. They had become acquainted earlier during what Raymond called "the Everson diappearance" case.

Later, Raymond West asked Badgworth to help when his friend and host John Newman disappeared.


Inspector Badgworth is depicted in the anime show Crime of the Gold Ingots, NHK's adaptation of Ingots of Gold. The portrayal is faithful to the original and the character has a large speaking part in the plot but the voice actor is not credited.
