So now the distinctive theme tune has been axed, and each episode will feature incidental music.

This news on top of all the other axing's, re-sheduling and re-orientation I can't help but wonder why the headline isn't "ITV axes THE BILL and replaces it with a new Police based soap-drama called THE BILL"

The title music to ITV1 police drama The Bill is being dropped as the show moves to a post-watershed slot.

But the new music will retain "subtle echoes" of the distinctive theme tune as part of an overhaul of the series.

The drama will move to a weekly slot at 2100 BST in the coming months and will "delve deeper" into its characters with more hard-hitting storylines.


So we're going to get a graphic sub-plot of Claire Goose applying Canesten Duo™ ??

Yes I do recall something about that.

What it was that made me think of Tosh was watching an 1990's episode where Ted Roach made a guest appearance, think it might have been his last, anyway Tosh wasn't in it but Ted got teamed up with Jim Carver, and I remember how Mark Wingett and Kevin Lloyd were always teamed together because they liked to work together and that chemistry was transferred onto the screen.
