    It's *exactly* what continuing drama should be!! Why on Earth ITV allowed it to be sabotaged will forever remain a mystery
    I have watched every episode of it since it started its rerun on Drama. Even though the cars are out of date and mobiles havent been invented its great to see the Real Bill. No pinko PC Nonsense here. Good old fashioned police work with Ted Roache and Frank Burnside. The beauty supplied by the Beautiful St. June of Sunill. The Bill and Londons Burning. Brilliant !!!!!!!!

    Thankfully we have a lot of great characters before then.

    Frank and Ted are just a joy to watch

    There's not really any character I'm not enjoying to be honest.

    Angry

    The Bill fans angry as Drama Channel changes plans to air every episode ever
    Somebody call the police.

    Somebody needs to get on the phone to the telly police, because the Drama Channel has annoyed a lot of viewers after going back on its promise to fans of The Bill.

    In case you weren't aware, the Drama Channel had made plans to air every single episode of classic police drama The Bill. A mammoth task, we're sure you'll agree.

    But instead of airing every single episode ever, the channel has now decided to 'fast-forward' and resume viewing proceedings with series 14.


    Announcing the decision on Twitter, the broadcaster wrote: "We've loved #TheBillRewind but due to demand we're now fast-forwarding. On Monday, we're joining Rosie Fox and Eddie Santini in series 14."


    We’ve loved #TheBillRewind but due to demand we’re now fast-forwarding. On Monday, we’re joining Rosie Fox and Eddie Santini in series 14.

    Somewhat surprisingly, die-hard fans of The Bill were outraged by the decision, and accused the channel of not 'having the rights' to the earlier series, which were originally shown on ITV.

    Drama Channel, however, has insisted that's not the case, reassuring viewers that "this is not a rights issue".

    Explaining that it's simply keeping its audience happy, the channel added: "Series 14 onwards have always been fan favourites so we're moving on to these."

    There are a couple of early episodes on Monday before they skip ahead, but they look like repeats of ones shown tonight (starting 23:50.) They're going up to episode 48 of series 4.

    "Series 14 onwards have always been fan favourites" ... so we've decided to start from episode 89 of that series!
