Blackstar video and DVD in the UK have a great range, and will ship to anywhere in the world! That's gotta be good. (Their online shopping system is also one of the best I have seen, with excellent order tracking functionality). They have a good range of the remaining Heartbeat videos.
I've ordered from them several times, and have always had items delivered within a week or so - to Australia. So they are very highly recommended!

General Merchandise

Soaps R Us have some great Heartbeat merchandise, including pens, key fobs, mugs and t-shirts. They also stock videos, CDs and books of the series, including the Changing Places video.
Set 1 - Ford Anglia & Triumph HeraldYou can buy die cast models of some of the vehicles from the series. These come in two sets called Heartbeat Collection and Heartbeat Collection II. They are manufactured in the UK by Lledo and can be purchased from Manx Models. The first set (now sold out) contains models of the black Ford Anglia Police car and Dr. Kate Rowan's Triumph Herald. The second set contains models of the Ford 100E Anglia (usually driven by Sgt. Blaketon) and the grey Mini Van (usually driven by PC Bellamy). (December 1 1997 - this may also be sold out too... try and see.)
Peter Killick runs an auction web-site in support of "Child Flight". This is a small British registered charity that specialises in sending children who suffer life-threatening conditions overseas for essential medical treatment and therapy. The auction site often features Heartbeat-related merchandise.
Not Heartbeat merchandise but Yorkshire related - I received the following e-mail recently:
I wondered if you would like to visit my web site. It is a fictional childrens musical (book and CD or tape) set in a North Yorkshire village.
I wrote it 8 years ago and has only just gone on the net you can hear the songs (samples) kids wear the tape out!
I wondered if it would be possible to advertise the site alongside the heartbeat merchandise as it would run parallel to the flavour of Heartbeat but something for children the site is only a temporary one for the moment, and is still not fully designed yet or fully up and running. But please have a look anyway
Heartbeat Calendars are produced annually but I have not seen anywhere to buy them on the net. I believe however that the Goathland Post Office do mail-order: write to Goathland Post office Goathland Whitby N.Yorkshire YO22 5LX tel-01947 876200
