Whose bright idea was it, I wonder, to introduce a trailer for the next episode of this wonderful series? Worse still, introduce it without warning, so that the viewer doesn't realise the scenes shown are not part of the episode just ending. Apart from that, it's five stars all the way.
The acting is superb, as is each entertaining story and its setting. In spite of the frequent repetitions of burglaries and fires, mostly arson, etc. it doesn't really matter. The series is so good, it becomes almost churlish to find fault with any part of it. Heartbeat will end one day, which will no doubt lead to heartbreak on the part of a multitude of fans.
