Set during the 1960s in the fictional North Yorkshire village of Aidensfield, this phenomenally popular series stars Jason Durr as PC Mike Bradley, the former Metropolitan Police officer whose work now takes him into the heart of rural community life.
Staple Sunday-night viewing for two decades, with colourful regular characters that viewers took to their heart, illustrious guest stars and a wonderfully nostalgic soundtrack, Heartbeat scooped many prestigious awards including Best Performing Peak-Time Drama in 1999 (beating Coronation Street), and several ITV Programme of the Year awards. Attracting a peak audience of 14 million and spawning a highly successful spin-off, The Royal, the series has garnered a devoted following and remains prime-time viewing world-wide.
Mike Bradley is still feeling his way with his new posting to Aidensfield having to contend with stolen radioactive isotopes, witchcraft, babysnatching, murderous intent, UFOs and the continual bad behaviour of one Claude Jeremiah Greengrass!
