The Bill cast rejoin seven years on as hit indicate comes back to screens today

Some of the stars of iconic ITV cop soap The Bill have reunited to celebrate the fact the entire collection of episodes are back on TV again.

Chris Simmons, Lisa Maxwell, Mark Wingett, Trudie Goodwin, Graham Cole and Eric Richard all posted on the bonnet of a police car to celebrate the news.

The Bill – which ran from October 1984 to 2010 – is being resuscitated on UKTV’s Drama Channel.

All 2,421 episodes will be broadcast on the TV channel seven years after the police soap was taken off the box.

he Bill was based in the fictional East London Sun Hill police station with Chris playing DC Mickey Webb, Lisa playing Samantha Nixon, Trudie playing Sgt June Ackland, Graham playing PC Tony Stamp, and Eric playing Sgt Bob Cryer.

Mark, 56 – who played DS Jim Carver over 787 episodes between the show debut and 2005 – has revealed just how much work went into making the show.

it was a tough job because we’d be working six days a week, involving 12-hour days after which I’d go home and learn my lines for the following day – so you had to get by on about six hours sleep a night,” he told The Sun.

But it was a wonderful thing to be part of, particularly because we were custodians of our characters, who we knew so well, and if we disagreed with the script we could make suggestions that would be used,” he added.
