Did You Know?


The fans of this show are called Hearties. With over 60,000 members (and growing) on Facebook, the Hearties are valiant in their efforts to support the continued growth of this series. 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 »

FINALLY a Great Family Series Again!
22 February 2014 | by sdw61See all my reviews

I was beginning to think family type series were truly a thing of the past, but when the series, "When Calls the Heart" finally began, I found a show that resembles the type of shows from the past that I still love! Thank you, Hallmark for bringing a a show to the 21st century with values of the past. It is decent, heart-warming, and one you look forward to seeing on a weekly basis, just like shows from the 70's and 80's. My family and I have gotten to the point that the only television series we enjoy watching is by purchasing DVD's of shows from the past like the "Waltons", "Little House on the Prarie", or "Anne of Green Gables" and watching them for hour long entertainment.

Hallmark, I appreciate you bringing a wonderful series with a thoughtful script and great actors/actresses to television. You are wise to acknowledge a market of weekly series that are family friendly, which has been greatly lacking for quite some time!
