Heartbeat gripped the nation on Sunday evenings, showcasing the highs and lows of a chaotic North Yorkshire village for 18 years on ITV.
Axed in 2010 due to low ratings, viewers hoped the 60s police drama would be picked up by Sky TV, but to no avail.
With a decade passing since the final episode of Heartbeat hit our TV screens, the show’s stars have gone down very different paths.
While some have graced other beloved Brit soap operas, others have quit acting altogether, opting out of the spotlight.
Tragically, some of the show’s most cherished cast members have died since the series finale, forever leaving their mark in the village of Aidensfield.
Below, we take a look at where the cast of Heartbeat has ended up, 10 years later.
The heartthrob of Heartbeat, Nick Berry played dishy copper PC Nick Rowan for six years.
His time in Aidensfield saw his character suffer a bereavement after the death of his wife Dr Kate Rowan, only to remarry local school teacher Jo Weston.
After a promotion to sergeant, PC Nick Rowan bid farewell to the village in 1998 and left for Canada, deciding to become a Mountie.
Though an established actor prior to Heartbeat, playing Simon Wicks in EastEnders, Nick then decided to quit the showbiz world entirely.
He landed a few roles post-Heartbeat, playing another policeman in the drama In Deep and harbour master Mike Nicholls in Harbour Lights.
However, at the age of 39, he tipped his hat to showbiz and became a full-time dad to his two sons, Louis and Finley.
Explaining his decision in a 2011 interview with The Daily Mail, he said: "I chose to be a stay-at-home dad and have loved it.
“I always said that when the boys were teenagers I could go back, but the longer you don't do something the harder it is to do it, and I haven't really missed it. While I'd never say never, I'm genuinely happy as I am.”
Today, Nick lives happily in Epping Essex with his wife Rachel Robertson, ditching his dark locks for a silver fox hairstyle.
Having risen to fame as Candice Stowe on Coronation Street, Nikki Sanderson was a beloved addition to the cast of Heartbeat in 2008.
The 36-year-old starlet played Dawn Bellamy, niece of the late PC Phil Bellamy, who decided to leave her rambunctious life in Manchester behind for the sleepy village.
Since Heartbeat wrapped, Nikki has risen the soap ranks as Maxine Minniver on Hollyoaks, tackling hard-hitting storylines such as her recent experience of Munchausen's syndrome.
On top of that, she laced up her boots for the latest season of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, making it to the final but narrowly missing out on the top prize.
Nikki split from her longterm beau Greg Whitehurst this year, telling The Sun: “Sadly, Greg and I have decided to separate. We remain friends and wish the best for each other in the future.”
The soap star continues to entertain fans via her Instagram, regularly sharing lingerie snaps and workout videos with her 416,900 followers.
Bringing a welcome dose of laugher to 60s North Yorkshire, David Lonsdale played funnyman David Stockwell on Heartbeat.
Working in a garage, David recruited Claude Jeremiah Greengrass as his sidekick and worked as a handyman in the village.
He left the soap after its 2010 cancellation and went on to appear in another pillar of soap royalty – Coronation Street.
Eight years ago, the 57-year-old played the villainous Edwin Soames on the cobbles, a policeman by day who turned abusive by night.
The Lancashire-born actor also appeared in the notorious male stripper film, The Full Monty, playing a repo man.
More recently, David landed a minor role in the film adaption of Downton Abbey, playing a Desk Sergeant in the period drama.
Veteran actor Bill Maynard had a heft of acclaimed titles under his belt before joining Heartbeat, with a number of roles in the slapstick Carry On films.
In 1992, he arrived in Aidensfield as Claude Jeremiah Greengrass, stirring trouble in the village with his clever schemes.
Sadly, the showbiz-favourite was forced to leave the soap at the turn of the millennium, as he battled ill health.
His character was written out, leaving North Yorkshire for a sun-kissed life in the sunny Caribbean.
In 2018, at the age of 89, Bill tragically died in hospital after falling off his mobility scooter and breaking his hip.
His Heartbeat co-stars paid tribute to his legacy on the soap, with Trisha Penrose writing: "R.I.P my lovely friend Bill Maynard it was only a few weeks ago I worked with you. You will be sadly missed."
Bill was survived by his children, Martin and Jayne.
Pulling pints at the Aidensfield Arms, Tricia Penrose played the doted-upon Gina Ward in Heartbeat.
Her character suffered heartache after the death of her longtime love PC Phil Bellamy in 2007, only to discover she was expecting his baby.
The following season, the straight-talking barmaid gave birth to their son, Philip Oscar Bellamy.
Leaving the soap after Heartbeat’s cancellation, the 50-year-old actress tried her hand at reality TV, appearing on the eleventh season of Celebrity Big Brother.
Trisha also fronted Big Star's Little Star and Celebrity Pointless, raising cash for charity.
Married to TV presenter Mark Simpkin, Trisha is proud mum to two sons – Freddy Jay, 12, and Jake, 17.
Living in Cheshire as a family of four, the soap star has a hit radio show on local airwaves, reaching out to viewers from Radio Wirral.
The unexpected death of PC Phil Bellamy moved viewers to tears in 2007, as Mark Jordan said goodbye to Aidensfield for good.
Bellamy had fallen for barmaid Gina Ward, with the two planning a wedding in the months leading up to his untimely murder.
PC Phil was killed in the line of duty, shot by a kidnapping criminal as he attempted to intervene and save a child from abduction.
Since leaving Heartbeat, the 55-year-old actor has gone on to appear in a number of hit soap operas, including Hollyoaks and Casualty.
In 2014, he played Graham Naisby on Coronation Street, joining the cobbles for two episodes.
On top of that, he appeared as former soldier Daz Spencer on Emmerdale, only to fall in love with one of his co-stars.
In August, he confirmed he was expecting his first child with wife-to-be Laura Norton, who plays Kerry Wyatt in the dales.
Sharing the news with OK! magazine, Laura said: "I had tears in my eyes, we're over the moon!"
