Award winning drama starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman. The show’s third and final series was made at The Bottle Yard Studios in 2016 and filmed across Bristol with support from the city’s Film Office.

The team based production offices, studio filming and storage on site for 9 months in total, and enjoyed easy access to Bristol filming locations at Temple Street, Victoria Street and Whitchurch Lane (which doubled as newspaper and call centre offices), Avonmouth’s Queen Street and Avonmouth Docks. Basing at the Studios meant they could also quickly access regular filming locations in Somerset and Dorset.

Producer Dan Winch said: “When navigating your way through the many challenges of producing eight hours of scripted drama, it’s so important to weigh up every logistical aspect of the production, in order to give yourselves the best chance of achieving high standards. I can without a doubt say that our set up at The Bottle Yard helped us hugely and I very much hope to return there with work in the not too distant future.”
