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
