Set during the 1960s in the fictional North Yorkshire village of Aidensfield, this phenomenally popular series interweaves crime and medical storylines, with colourful regular characters that viewers took to their hearts, illustrious guests and a wonderfully nostalgic soundtrack.
Staple Sunday-night viewing for two decades, 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.
This ninth series finds PC Mike Bradley and feisty solicitor Jackie planning a quiet wedding, while district nurse Maggie comes to terms with life as a single mum, and barmaid Gina continues to be unlucky in love. Charlotte Church, Judy Cornwell, Phyllis Logan and George Sewell guest-star, with Take That's Gary Barlow appearing in the series 150th edition.
