The Bill was a British police procedural television series that was broadcast on the ITV network from 16 October 1984 until 31 August 2010. It centered around the fictional incidents dealt with by the Metropolitan Police Service. The programme originated from a one-off drama, entitled Woodentop, which was broadcast in August 1983.
During its time on air, The Bill won several awards, including BAFTAs, a Writers' Guild of Great Britain award and the title of "best drama" at the Inside Soap Awards in 2009, this being the series' fourth consecutive win.
In March 2010, executives at ITV announced that the network did not intend to recommission The Bill, and that filming on the series would cease on 14 June 2010. The last ever episode of the series was aired on 31 August 2010.
The Bill regularly pulled in high viewing numbers and since being axed in 2010 no programme has ever came close to The Bill.
The Bill offer hard hitting story lines often based on true story's.
I ask that ITV consider recommissioning The Bill under its original format of cast with a new modern station that could be used at the existing premises if possible.
The cast made a great team and I'm sure the public and cast would support this.
Although old episodes are repeated on Watch it's just not the same.
Please ITV listen to the viewers.
