Officer Rhea’s story is the origin of the TV series ‘Heartbeat’ – and yes, Greengrass makes an appearance! There is also Aud George, who informs the village of local deaths by using his own coded system; the Annual Coursing Meeting and village greyhound racing. There are mischevious mutts: Rufus, who loves dustbins and Emperor the Alsatian whose favourite lavatory was Stumpy Syke’s flower beds. There is local femme fatale Mrs Dulcimer, who likes policemen to inspect her credentials, the dotty Mrs Fraser and the lady who complains when the policeman parks his car outside other ladies’ houses. A fascinating and hilarious real life story of police work in a small English viallge.
