As big-hearted PC Tony Stamp - the TV cop closest to the real thing - Graham Cole is instantly recognisable after pounding the beat of fictional Sun Hill in The Bill for two decades. Now in a witty and candid memoir Graham reveals his own rise to stardom starting out in television as an extra playing monsters in Doctor Who opposite Tom Baker and Peter Davison and appearing in episodes of shows such as Only Fools and Horses Blake's Seven and Secret Army. His skill at stage fighting landed him work as an extra in The Bill and he was soon given a full-time job as area car driver and all-round good guy Tony Stamp. 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.
