Local policeman will miss The Bill
SENIOR Constable Michael Hogan found himself in the nick last week after admitting he was a fan of long-running British cop show The Bill which ends tonight.
While coppers are usually the last viewers to praise police dramas, Lismore's crime prevention officer and fellow die-hard fans will be wondering what to do with their Saturday nights after the final episode of the much-loved drama screens on the ABC for the last time.
After 27 years the sun will set on the show that launched the careers of some of Britain's best actors.
Fellow copper, Inspector Paul Fredericks, admits to having enjoyed the odd episode in the past but is generally bemused by most cop shows.
“If we did what most of them do in an episode we'd be sitting behind a typewriter for the next 10 years.”
