The Bill is a long running police drama filmed in the UK but broadcast to around 35 different countries. Tracking the highs and lows of Sun Hill Police Station as well as the personal lives of it's officers, The Bill has now been running for nearly twenty years and remains as popular as ever.

SGT June Ackland(Trudie Goodwin) is one of the casts longest serving members, who along with her current love interest PC Jim Carver (Mark Wingett) starred in the pilot episode "Woodentop" broadcast in 1983 where we see June puppy walking Jim (quite cute really!)


Trudie attended Dartington College in Devon to study Dance and Drama. From there she went on to Exeter University to gain an English and Drama Degree.

Her first acting work came with Theatre Centre, touring schools and other theatre-in-education projects. Armed with her equity card, she went on to repertory work in Worcester, Coventry, Exeter and Leicester.

Television parts followed with "The Gentle Touch", "Softly, Softly", "Fox" and "Love in a Cold Climate" before appearing in the TV Play "Woodentop" - which as we all should know by now was the prototype of "The Bill".
