By the time I issued these comments, it had been announced that the popular series would gather dust on a shelf and so the end is nigh and I wouldn't be all that surprised. In part, the decision to axe the series was made due to its sinking popularity and much had been said about Heartbeat throughout its production run spanning 1.5 decades that I have long thought to myself "How much longer can it linger"? With the same plots, it has to be said that most viewers around the box were becoming increasingly tired and frustrated and its now simply lacking the original on what was once a more gentle-natured series. Even so, its becoming increasingly violent and depressing with lack of ideas and bad story lines. Even Lovejoy's Ian McShane once commented about Heartbeat being a soap and who would try to get him wrong nowadays with its gradual fall from grace in the TV guides and critics choice.
