A superb series when it started, great set at a great price. So much better than the soap opera that the Bill has become.
#3
Yay, watched this from the beginning (some Dads buy it for themselves :thumbsup:) heat and rep you orrible little scrote!
#4
The older ones were the best.

The one I enjoyed the most was the spin off with bent cop Don Beech. It was titled Beech on the run and lasted several episodes. Anybody know where i could pick this up? Would love to see it again.

Agreed. The special episodes (Beech Is Back) were absolute classics. The highpoint in the Bill's history IMHO.

Nowadays I give the show a wide berth. With classic characters such as Beech, Tosh, Burnside (remember them?) having been replaced by 3rd rate soap actors I really can't be bothered watching. Shame really.

Still I have the memories (...and maybe the DVDs).

Yeah I remember all the old characters. Bolton, Tavener, Boyden, Cryer, Page, remenber Carver? He was good. The last remaining ones, Stamp, Hollis, Ackland etc have been written off over the last couple of years. Don't watch it anymore as it's not the same. TV directors are bloody useless these days.

I was reading earlier that the guy who played Reg Hollis (the nerdy sort of cop) tried to commit suicide after being told his character was being written out. Playing the character was his life.

Billy Murray who played Beech is a superb actor, one of the best I've seen on tv. I've spent ages looking for Beech on the run on VHS or DVD but nothing :cry:
