Gavin & Stacey (TV Series 2007– ) Poster

(2007– )


Gavin and Stacey's surnames (Shipman and West) are named after the famous British serial killers Dr. Harold Shipman (one of the most prolific serial killers ever, believed to have had least 200 victims) and Fred West. Also Pete Sutcliffe (Adrian Scarborough), has the same first and last name as the man known as "The Yorkshire Ripper".
Except for the scenes shot on location in London in the first episode, the whole series was filmed in Wales, including the scenes set in Essex. The house which was used as the Shipmans' (Gavin's family) house is located in Dinas Powys, a village 1 mile North West of Barry, where the Wests (Stacey's family) live.
Almost every episode starts with a phone call between Gavin and Stacey.
Samuel Anderson, Andrew Knott and Russell Tovey who make up part of the stag party starred with James Corden in The History Boys (2006) and in the stage version.
