Debuting in 1984, The Bill is one of the longest running (possibly the longest running) police drama in the UK.
The series is set at the fictional Sun Hill Metropolitan Police Station in east London.
As might be expected with a series that has been in production for such a long period of time, the cast of characters has changed over the years. The primary focus, however, was on the officers and their criminal investigations.
Original air dates: 10/16/1884 to 01/22/1985
