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.

For cops in Mt Thomas, life's about more than the badge.

The same blue heeler dog was used as Tom Croydon's dog Digger throughout the entire series. In reality its name was Bluey, and lasted in the show from 1994-2005. See more
With extremely rare exceptions, such as P.J.'s shooting of Raelene Darcy or Adam Cooper nearly dying in a crash during a street race, no senior officers ever turn up or even appear to be informed/mentioned dealing with major critical incidents such as Mount Thomas officers being shot, stabbed, abducted, held hostage or explosions, plane crashes, serial murders and so on. In the Victoria Police, situations such as these would always be overseen by the District or Regional Duty Officer, which would at least be an inspector, and especially in the case of a member being seriously injured, high-ranking commissioned officers would always attend to check on their welfare. Throughout the series all of these situations are otherwise handled by Tom Croydon, which would never happen initially. See more
