Distant Shores
27 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hi, Distant Shores was filmed not far from where I live in Northumberland. (Mainly Craster, and Alnwick and District). To my knowledge series 2 was indeed filmed and has yet to be shown on British television. Distant Shores was very well received by the viewing public as a good humoured show on North Northumberland every day lives. The village of Craster which is a favourite place of mine and well worth a visit if you are travelling to Northumberland. The pub, which is actually in the village is called The Jolly Fisherman, well worth a visit for its excellent food and drink as well as friendly atmosphere and views. Dunstanburgh Castle which features in the series is a mile or so away and is a great place to visit. The "Mermaid" was added to the Harbour for the show and has remained to this day, maybe this could be for a possible third series? I understand that the studio where indoor sets were made was in the dis-used sports hall of a Middle School, this is now re-opened and not available for use. However with Newcastle not that far, storage and studio use shouldn't cause a problem. A very good show, set in a stunning location. Use Google Earth or Search Engines to find Craster, you will not be disappointed. Feel free to contact me with any more questions on the show and I will be happy to help. Andrew
