The most popular local production on Australian television, Blue Heelers is a weekly police drama based on a fictional bush town called Mount Thomas. Every week there is a different case for Sergeant Tom Croydon, Senior Constable Nick Schultz, Senior Detective PJ Hasham, and Constables Maggie Doyle, Dash McKinley and Adam Cooper to solve. Continuing storylines about the personal lives and relationships of these characters filter into each episode.

Did You Know?
Before her death in a car accident in season two, Tom's first wife Nell Croydon was mentioned in almost every episode but was never seen. In the episode of her death, her voice is heard and we see her left eye briefly in a photograph Tom touches before her funeral. Behind the scenes, John Wood who plays Tom thought the idea of Nell being talked of but never seen was hilarious, and called her "non-existant Nell". The episode of her death was rated one of the saddest moments in Australian television. See more
