Did You Know?


Hamilton is the Canadian city frequently used in the show. Hope Valley is somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. A train ride from Vancouver to Hamilton would take about three days, according to today's trains and schedules, thus demonstrating that moving between Hope Valley and Hamilton would likely take even longer during the era in which the show takes place.

I notice the the strap offering support to the gun belt worn by the Royal North West Mounted Police as portrayed on this show, changes sides. From what I understand, it should offer support on the side the sidearm is worn by an officer. The alternate to this is seems to offer support to a ceremonial sword worn by a higher ranking officer.

I have noticed that the strap is incorrectly worn both ways by the character Jack Thornton. See more »

While I do not expect a Hallmark series to be an intellectual treatise, I still expect it to be consistent to its time period. When Calls The Heart treats its era fast and loose, existing completely outside of reality yet it presents itself as if it were a historical dramady. The teacher presents poetry that had not yet been classified as of any literary importance, while the same poet is quoted by persons who would hardly have heard of an obscure writer. An actress sings a song she supposedly sang when she fell in love over a year previously, when it was not written until three years after her current place in time. The costuming is plucked solely out of imagination, as are the hairstyles and sets. If the plots were compelling, I would suspend my criticisms of the anachronisms, but they are often silly and the characters actions are rarely propelled by realistic motivations. If you like the Harlequin style of romance, with a preachy bent, and you do not expect to think during a drama, then this is the show for you.
