"The Bill" went from strength to strength in 1988 when it was restructured 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 fan favourites Sgt. Cryer (Eric Richard), W.P.C. Ackland (Trudie Goodwin), Det. Sgt. Ted Roach (Tony Scannell) and the irascible D.I. Burnside (Christopher Ellison), this set contains 13 consecutive episodes of the half-hour series.
