Show Summary

Heartbeat is set in the 1960s, in the fictional Yorkshire town of Aidensfield. The first seasons focus on the lives of London policeman Nick Rowan, who moves to the village with his doctor wife Kate. Nick's police colleagues feature in the series, under the leadership of the crusty but kindhearted Sergeant Blaketon. Blaketon's nemesis is Claude Jeremiah Greengrass, poacher and occasional small-time fence. Greengrass is a regular patron of the Aidensfield Arms hotel, run by George Ward and his pretty niece Gina. It's here at the pub that we see much of the day-to-day social interaction in the series. Heartbeat is based on the Constable books by Nicholas Rhea.

There have been a load of Heartbeat coppers over the years. They are listed below:

Sgt Oscar Blaketon PC Alf Ventress PC Phil Bellamy PC/Sgt Nick Rowan PC/DC Mike Bradley Sgt Raymond Craddock PC Tom Nicholson Sgt Dennis Merton PC Steve Crane Sgt George Miller PC Rob Walker PC Geoff Younger

The musical theme, originally performed by Buddy Holly, is performed here by original show star Nick Berry.moreless

  • A wonderful Brit. show set in the beautiful Yorkshire country side.

    10
    I live in Canada but was born in Yorkshire, which is one of the reasons why I love the show. But the main reason is the story lines with those wonderful querky characters like David and Peggy, who of course replaced Greengrass. The setting is the beautiful Yorkshire countryside with some great acting and fab music of the 60's. I only hope ITV doesn't axe the show. I am getting so sick of the constant reality shows. This is a show with great content. Mystery, Laughs, Music. A great show to watch that leaves you feeling light hearted with eager anticipation for the next episode.moreless
  • Just started watching this in Canada. It's a clean, decent show and reminds me of the 60's and 70's. Well done show.

    8.0
    As I said above, I like this show because it's decent, clean and well done. When I first saw it, I thought it was an old re-run from the 60's or 70's. The episodes are well thought out, the characters are all well played and it makes for a pretty good show. I'd rather watch this than a lot of other crap that's on tv today. The programming in my area (Ontario Canada) has been going downhill for some time. I'm sick and tired of all of the reality shows on and am glad I can watch this once in awhile. I've only been watching for about 2 weeks but all of the episodes have been really well done. Thanks STmoreless

  • Why is Heartbeat Always critisized?

    9.5
    Heartbeat is always being knocked down by the critics but after 16 series, is is still standing proud. Its an amusing show, that is light- hearted, and entertaining. You can always have a giggle, a cry or belly laugh, whilst watching the show, that seems to be living in the 60\\\'s for ever and ever! I give Heartbeat 5 stars!
