Trivia

For the first series, the historic council building was used as the external facade of the series' fictional police station. During the filming of series 1 the unused building was utilized as the TV production offices, and some scenes were filmed in limited interior areas. Due to the building's sale, interior access for the second series, which was to be filmed starting in September 2014 was denied due to active construction. The exterior continued to be used as the facade of the fictional police station but due to construction, the building interior was unavailable. So anyone watching future series will see people using the steps to the station, but no one is ever seen actually entering the building after series 1. See more »

So Good!
21 April 2017 | by chickinabimmerSee all my reviews

Excellent. Intriguing. Haunting. Beautiful and bleak. Strong characters and performances. So different than the shoot 'em up, soft core ridiculousness of US cop shows.

Perfect to binge. I'm having a tough time turning it off. I want to see what happens next and why. Interesting that they shoot in Welsh and English, takes a moment to get attuned to the accents and cadence.

Check it out! It really is good.

PS if you like this, take a peek at "Shetland". … another BBCgem.
