Too Old!!!

WTF is the Bill becoming? A police Hollyoaks, or a police Neighbours?

You ain't kidding. It's more of a comedy if anything

I think the relaunch in November will be really good, harder storylines, fresh feeling, one a week will mean better production quality. I am really excited about it.

Apparently, The Bill is to become more like CSI! :rofl:


I think they purposely have made it into a soap opera for the past few years, it's the feel they wanted and it worked for that genre, now they want to move it back into a police drama, more about the stories and drama than the characters and I think they will achieve it. The new look will be very different.

Sounds like Talkback/Thames are shooting themselves in the foot, they are trying to bring it in line with Neighbours (owned by the same group)

I think the bosses of The Bill have treated some of the former cast members appallingly.


Anything with Claire Goose in it has to be shit. She is truly awful on all levels

Surely Senior Officers are allowed to be old. :stomp:

I don't watch the Bill any more but if I fancy a viewing I will watch UK Gold :thumb:
