  • And the Fandom Rejoiced: What the writers hoped to do by bringing in the likes of Gary Sweet and Vince Colossimo.
  • Archive Panic: Feel like watching the whole series? The thirteen season, 510 episode strong show is currently on it's twelth volume of the DVD release (all seasons except the last had more than 40 episodes, and the DVD releases aren't based on their broadcast seasons).
  • Consolation Award: John Wood was nominated for the Gold Logie every year from 1997 to 2007. He won in 2006, the year Blue Heelers was cancelled. He noted in an interview with The Glass House that he preferred his job to the award...so after ten years he finally brings home the bacon.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: The writers try and give each character one in their day in the limelight, see the Crowning Moment page.
  • Growing the Beard: The show picked up in quality and popularity in the second and third seasons. Arguably again in season 11, after the station bombing.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In one episode Dash opens a suspicious box to find a bloody pigs head, and Nick rips her to shreds because it could have been a bomb. This episode was replayed on the day of the station bombing story arc, where Nick returned as a detective.
  • Jump the Shark: Some thought the show would never be the same after Maggie died. Others though the large shake up and serious, graphic and gritty tone taken after the station bombing qualifies.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The previews for Child's Play warned that this was the most shocking episode the writers have ever done. They did not disappoint, with the real nightmare not being the rape and butchering of a teenage girl, but the suspects laughing and getting off on it.
