Did You Know?


Wendell Backus Is Coal Valley's town drunk. Bacchus is the name of the Roman god of wine and both names are pronounced the same. See more »


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 »

When Calls The Heart
24 March 2014 | by khelms51See all my reviews

I do not watch very much television, but "When Calls the Heart" has touched my soul. Each week I look forward to watching; I do not have to worry about the language or what my grandchildren might see watching the show in the same room. Children today need the principles modeled by the characters in the story. The people of Coal Valley have undergone unbelievable tragedy and they have been forced to endure incredible hardships. Their faith in God, their perseverance, their neighbors, help them survive. I enjoy the period pieces and old westerns. The Hallmark Channel has a real gem in this series, I hope that they realize the impact that this show is having on so many people. Thank you Janette Oke, Michael Landon Jr., and Brian Bird for such a wonderful series. Please do not let it end with only one season.

I intend to purchase the rest of the season on DVD as soon as it becomes available.
