Good work by them.
Recently a lot of owners of shows have tried too hard to make money, when you can get them online for free. Its good to know, some people are learning.....

I'm sure there will be ads running to support the show.

it was still really good when it went to the hour long episodes, late 90s early 2000s.
It went downhill in the last few years as it tried to be all CSI, with its shakey camera work and incidental music

yeah and showing too much of the officers personal lives didn't help either

Enjoyed The Bill, having been in "The Job" for over 20 years, but must say - "Hill Street Blues" was the one that made it for me. Also, it was on when AWP was showing as well. Two brilliant shows on a Friday night - perfection.!! The number of times I was late for my shift on a Friday night was unbelievable. The Line - Lets Be Careful out There - has to be a classic, and (don't tell anybody?) had a fling with a nurse who looked just like the Public Defender Joyce Davenport (Veronica Hammill) before I met the current love of my life, who, incidentally is a big AWP fan, like me.

ah yes...she was also the lovely Debbie in 'Big Deal' in the early 80's. She was only about 15.....but it was 'alright' as I was only about that age myself!

Just browsing through the sites and found the link between The Bill and AWP. Someone may have picked up on it before but Harry Blackburn, the plumber is none other than DC Tosh Lines, actor, the late Kevin Lloyd. Was great as Harry in AWP. Sadly missed
