Mature themes, violence and drug use
The Bill went from strength to strength in 1988 when it was reconstructed into the half-hour format that stormed to the top of the ITV ratings and has remained a Top 10 UK drama ever since. Starring such fan favourites as Sgt. Cryer (Eric Richard), WPC Ackland (Trudie Goodwin), Det Sgt. Ted Roach (Tony Scannell) and Christopher Ellison as the irascible D.I. Burnside, this eight-disc set contains 51 episodes of the half-hour series, including 2 hour-long specials.
