During the coronavirus lockdown, we are all looking for different things to stream – and it’s no different for long term serial drama fans.
But once you have finished bingeing the whole of Waterloo Road and given there’s no sign of Bad Girls or Footballer’s Wives yet, where do we go from here?
UK TV Play have the answer – as they are now streaming the entire first five series of iconic police soap The Bill – and it’s just what we need for that nostalgia feeling.
The crime drama ran for 27 years before ITV destroyed our souls by dropping the axe after a format change failed to lift ratings. Huge stars such as Sean Bean, Hugh Laurie and Keira Knightley appeared in The Bill over the years and if you can name us a soap star from the era who left their show and didn’t do a cameo, you’d be a genius.
The channel’s Twitter account made the announcement to huge cheers from fans, who now hope that the rest of the series will then be made available.
They said: ‘Your favourite stories. Your favourite characters. Your favourite theme tune. The first five series’ of #TheBill are coming exclusively to UKTV Play on May 1st.’
Bring. It. On. Just waiting on the Bad Girls announcement next. We can pray can’t we?
