Long running (10 seasons) heart-warming drama Where The Heart Is features the loves and lives of families living in the small Yorkshire town of Skelthwaite.
The first series focuses on two hard-working district nurses, Peggy Snow (Pam Ferris) and her sister-in-law Ruth Goddard (Sarah Lancashire). The plots gradually branch out to take in the wider community with each new series. Newer lead characters included Karen Buckley (Leslie Ash), glamorous single mum Kim Blakeney (Denise Van Outen) and the new sister at the health centre Anna Kirkwall (Lesley Dunlop).
There is high drama for the Snow family when Peggy and her daughter Lucy fight for life following a car accident. Several lead characters also meet a sticky end: from being killed in a house fire to death by runaway horse.
A single episode of Where the Heart Is took 11 days to film and another five weeks in post production.
Pam Ferris and Sarah Lancashire were both nominated for National TV Awards after the first two series.
