Hello Scope Community,
I hope all are well?
I know it is miserable weather outside today after glorious weather over the last few days.
I have read the bill fictional police drama is returning to our television screens
I would like to get the scope community option on whether you would happy to see the bill return to our television screens or not?
In my opinion, they just never try to bring old programmes back television

And if would like to see any television programmes brought back what would they be and why would see television programme back on tv?

    I read this a while ago. I’d personally like a return to the screens. Just a case of keeping an eye out on the progress.

    i enjoyed it first time round, but surely they could come up with a new idea just now and again.
    I will now only offer benefits advice on PIP, and specific benefits advice for other people with Epilepsy.

    Used to like it a lot first time around simply because I was aware that it was the closest to factual accuracy about police procedure you were ever going to get on TV. However, it eventually opted to become a soap and largely abandoned accuracy. So, for me, it depends which version you're getting back. The answer is most likely still "no" though. 

    If it's the soap version then just "no thanks". If it's the factual version then okay let's see you cover Brexit, County Lines dealing; people smuggling; Covid-19 and racism without being patronising, provocative or inaccurate. Strikes me as unlikely.

    I watch the early series on Drama from series 1, they don’t actually show it on the drama channel, they are available on UKTV Play.

    Used to love The Bill, the theme tune was awesome. Would be good to see it return.
