Heartbeat was an ITV crime drama series that ran for eighteen seasons from 1992 to 2010, based upon the 'Constable' series of books by Nicholas Rhea (full list at bottom of page). There were two spin-off TV series, 'The Royal' and 'The Royal Today', neither of which had any books published. I do not know how many of Nicholas Rhea's original books were re-published showing the TV series covers, so this gallery is probably incomplete. In addition, at least one original novel based on the actual TV series, was published by Mandarin Books in 1995.
