Trivia
The final edition, part two of "Respect", was transmitted on ITV1 on Tuesday 31st August 2010 (27 years after the pilot Storyboard: Woodentop (1983) aired on Tuesday 16th August 1983). The episode bore a closing caption over a shot of Sun Hill Station: "Dedicated to the men and women of the Metropolitan Police Service, past and present."

A special live episode (The Bill: 162 (2003)) was broadcast on the 30 October 2003 to celebrate twenty years of the show since the pilot Storyboard: Woodentop (1983). In a shock move the character of DC Juliet Becker (Rae Baker) was stabbed to death by a drunken man (played by Charles Dale), having only been in the show for four months. On the 22 September 2005 a second live episode (The Bill: 349 (2005)) was shown to celebrate the 50th birthday of ITV, the network that broadcasts the show. The storyline involved the armed siege of Sun Hill police station by the distraught father (Stuart Laing) of a boy killed by a car thief.

The producers of the show clear all new regular police character names with the Metropolitan police service to ensure there are no current serving officers with the same name. However if a person with the same name were to join the service at a later date, the show would be entitled to continue using the name.
