The series is named after the song "Heartbeat", which peaked at number thirty in the UK for Buddy Holly in 1959, and then posthumously in 1960. A cover version of the song was performed by Nick Berry, who starred as Police Constable Nick Rowan, and was used as the theme tune for this series. It reached number two on the UK singles chart in 1992. See more »

I have enjoyed Heartbeat since it was first screened 13 years ago, and it is still set in the 60's !! Most of the outdoor scenes are filmed in the small village of Goatland which is renamed Aidensfield. I Have been in the pub, the shops, the garage and on the train on a day trip!! The main police station is set in the nearest small town, the name of which slips my mind at the moment. Some scenes are set in the real seaside town of Whitby. Almost all of the cast have changed. I used to like Greengrass but is successors have been a bit too pushy for my liking. One strange thing is that when Alf Ventress was in uniform , he had no medals on his jackets even though one episode was all about his war service in the marines.
