Blue Heelers Trivia

Series creator Hal McElroy decided that unlike most police dramas that present the stories from the perspective of the criminals, victims and others involved in a crime he would show the story from the viewpoint of the officers.

The Blue Heelers worked out of a police station in a ficticious small town named Mount Thomas located somewhere in Victoria.

Four of the actors who eventually got recurring roles as police officers first appeared on an episode as civilians. Peta Doodson, who became Inspector Monica Draper, appeared as Angela Todd, the wife of an Alderman on episode #28 titled "Consequences". Tasma Walton (Constable Dash McKinley) appeared as Kim Treloar, a 16-year-old schoolgirl on episode #61 titled "Salutary Lessons". Terry Serio (Sergeant Mick Doyle) appeared as Paul Reynolds, a nightclub bouncer on episode #47 titled "A Question of Courage". Finally, Jane Allsop (Constable Jo Parrish) appeared as Angie Anderson, a girl wrapped up in a matchmaking scam on episode #138 titled "Fool For Love".

The Blue Heelers sixth season and the first few episodes of the seventh received the biggest number of viewers of the entire series. Those episodes concentrated on the relationship between Detective P.J. Hashman and Constable Maggie Doyle which culminated in Doyle's shooting death on episode #255 titled "One More Day". That episode was named as the third all time most memorable moment on Australian drama television by TV Week Magazine!

One of the saddest moments on Australian television happened when Tom Croydon's wife Nell died in a car crash in season two. It's a bit ironic that fans felt so much sympathy for Nell as she had never actually been seen on the series. She was mentioned however in almost every episode up to that point.

Nell Croydon was eventually seen on episode #244, "Starry Starry Night" in a long dream sequence where Tom is talking to Nell while fishing alone on the anniversary of her death.
