TV shows filmed in Northern Ireland return to our screens for new series
Some well known TV shows filmed in Northern Ireland are returning to our screens with new series.
Police drama 'Line Of Duty' returned for a second run on Wednesday 12th February on BBC Two. Series two was filmed entirely in Belfast, and features a new police corruption story told over six one-hour episodes.
Its first series was shot in Birmingham, although in the show the setting remained undisclosed.
Writer Jed Mercurio said: “Series two was filmed in Belfast, doubling seamlessly (and extremely enjoyably) for our anonymous English city. It was a pleasure and a privilege to work with a fabulous local crew and many local cast; we were made to feel extraordinarily welcome.”
Also returning is the BBC's comedy series 'Blandings', which was filmed at Crom Castle in County Fermanagh. Based on PG Wodehouse's classic stories, its second series begins this Sunday 16th February at 6.30pm on BBC One.
Comedian Tim Vine (Not Going Out) will join its cast of comedy greats. Vine takes on the role of Beach, Blandings' long suffering and loyal butler, in the seven-part series. He joins Timothy Spall (Harry Potter Films, The King’s Speech) and Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous, Jam & Jerusalem) as they reprise their roles as the absent-minded Lord Emsworth (Clarence to his friends) and his indomitable sister Connie, alongside Jack Farthing as Clarence’s feckless son, Freddie.
The series is set in 1929 in the fictional Blandings Castle, home to a chaotic family struggling to keep itself in order.
