Set during the 1960s in the fictional North Yorkshire village of Aidensfield and initially starring former EastEnder Nick Berry as PC Nick Rowan, this enduringly popular series interweaves crime and medical storylines, with a host of colourful characters that viewers took to their hearts and a wonderfully nostalgic soundtrack. Staple Sunday-night viewing for two decades, Heartbeat won several prestigious TV awards - including Best Performing Peak-Time Drama in 1999 (beating Coronation Street), and a number of ITV Programme of the Year awards. Attracting a peak audience of 14 million and spawning a highly successful spin-off, The Royal, and a Top Ten hit single, the series has garnered a devoted following and remains prime-time viewing world-wide. Available for the first time on DVD, this complete third series was originally transmitted in October 1993 and features guest appearances by among others Daniel Craig, Dora Bryan, Clive Swift and Susan Jameson.
