Set during the mid to late 1960's in the fictional villages of Ashfordly and Adensfield, somewhere near the real town of Whitby in North Yorkshire, Heartbeat is an entertaining light drama focusing on the lives of the local police officers and the local villagers. The local police constable is, depending on the series and actors involved, married to or dating the local doctor and many episodes combine police and medical drama. Light comedic relief is provided by the antics and moneymaking schemes of the local scallywag, Claude Greengrass in earlier series and later by the character, Vernon Scripps.
The setting of rural England during the 1960's is a nostalgic one though not too sickly sweet and each episode also features a few pop music hits from the era. The show is based on the Constable novels by Nicholas Rhea.
