“‘Allo allo! What’s this ‘ere then?” Such is the dialogue on the UK’s long-running ‘bobby’ drama, The Bill. Dealing with the goings on at a London police station, this well written, impeccably performed cop soap mixes action with laughs and changes focus each week on a different person in the station, keeping things fresh and never letting one personality dominate. So how good is it? Well, it’s been going since 1983 and is even eagerly anticipated in other countries such as Australia, where it’s been playing for years.
