About The Bill

The Bill Original Logo (1984-1997)

The Bill is a long-running British television police procedural shown on ITV1, at 9pm, usually on Thursdays.

In the UK, catch-ups of the show can be seen on ITV3 in the UK with past episodes also seen on Watch. In Australia, the show is shown on ABC, and in Ireland by RTÉ One.

The setting is the Sun Hill district of the fictional London borough of Canley. Other police stations in the borough, mentioned but (usually) never seen, are Barton Street, which is the location of Borough Headquarters, Stafford Row and Spicer Street. Canley is approximately contiguous with the real London Borough of Tower Hamlets, and is also the name of a real district within the city of Coventry, some 100 miles north of London.
