Graham Cole is one of television s most familiar faces and starred as popular PC Tony Stamp in ITV s long-running police drama The Bill for more than 20 years. Now his autobiography has been revised and updated and is available for the first time in paperback. Publication will tie-in with the end of The Bill after 27 years on television.From the Inside Flap:
Actor Graham Cole has pounded the beat in ITV1 police drama The Bill for more than two decades and has won plaudits for his carefully crafted portrayal of dependable PC Tony Stamp, the television cop most like the real thing.
While on screen Tony Stamp has become a Sun Hill stalwart and the sort of old-fashioned policeman you would want on your side, off-screen Graham has worked tirelessly with the real police to make sure he's kept up to date with frontline officers.
Graham worked in the NHS as a porter before starting his acting career doing summer seasons and working in holiday camps. His television break came as an extra playing monsters in Doctor Who and appearing in episodes of shows such as Only Fools and Horses and Secret Army.
Later his skill at stage fighting landed him work as an extra in The Bill and it wasn't long before he was given a full-time job as area car driver and all round good guy Tony Stamp.
Now, in a witty and candid memoir, he reveals just what it's like to star in one of television's most enduring series, the key events he's seen during his time on the show and how he really feels about leaving after 25 years.
On The Beat is the entertaining autobiography of a likeable star who reveals the inside story behind the scenes of Britain's favourite police drama and the ups and downs of an actor's life.
