Trivia:
The series is named after the song "Heartbeat", which peaked at number 30 in the UK for American singer Buddy Holly in both 1959 and then posthumously in 1960. A cover version of the song was performed by Nick Berry, who starred as PC Nick Rowan, and was used as the theme tune for the series. It reached number two on the UK singles chart in 1992.See more »

Enjoyable English 1960s nostalgia, 3 April 2004
Author: penseur from Wellington

This TV series manages to combine all the elements that make for a pleasant and at times absorbing hour in front of the TV - good varied characters, a range of occupations, although of course the policemen dominate, creative and simultaneously plausible story lines - usually one serious criminal occurrence and one lighthearted theme per episode - and all of it set in rural English village landscape (Yorkshire) which looks very nice and a contrast from urban Britain which I find mostly quite dreary and depressing. The 1960s seem a long time ago now, before Britain joined the EEC, when it still used non-decimal currency and imperial measurements, when it was still largely "monocultural", and when there were still steam trains. There are also those dinky British 60s cars, motorbikes and trucks that everyone gets around in, miniskirts and pop hits of the time on the soundtrack. What more could you ask for? Another commentator says it screens in the UK on Sunday nights - here it has always screened early on Saturday afternoons which isn't exactly prime time, a pity.
