Lovely scenery, where is it filmed?


Jury's still about this but what a beautiful location! Does anyone know where it's filmed?

reply

Totnes, Devon.

Thank you, I have actually been there and don't remember it being that beautiful, we have friends in Teignmouth so next time we stay will definitely do a "coroner" tour. Thanks again!

I visited Totnes as part of a Cornwall/Devon holiday tour.

So immediately when I saw the shot of the beach and the cottages it all felt familiar! :)

The scenes where they sit on a bench in front of her office are Bayards Cove in Dartmouth, her office is in Dartmouth. Her (the coroner's) home is in Hope Cove with a lovely aerial shot at the beginning of the beach at Hope Cove. The beach scenes with the cafe in the background are Blackpool Sands (near Dartmouth). All the boat scenes are Dartmouth. The court is in Totnes I think. the opening scenes with the credits were filmed somewhere like Start Point/ Berry Head. Not sure where the pub is or the tower.

In the land of corny Television.
Surposed to be Totness Devon but you can bet they will use any where in Devon and Cornwall to film this load of tripe.

reply

Thank you, will definitely make an effort to see some of these beautiful places, you're obviously a local, lucky you ?

reply

Most of it is filmed in Dartmouth, in many of the same locations used for 'The Onedin Line'. The chase sequence in episode two was the multi-storey car park in Torquay and the undertakers' meeting was at Oldway mansion in Paignton.

reply

Yes, I live in Dartmouth.

The surf beach in the second episode is Bantham.

reply

The tower is the Gribben Head Landmark near Fowey

reply

MrsHJ is just about spot-on. I recognised most places as mentioned.

reply

I might be wrong, but I think the pub is The Ferry Inn at Dittisham. If not I'll stand corrected!!

reply

The Black Dog Inn pub is in fact the Crooked Spaniards pub in Cargreen, Cornwall on the edge of the River Tamar.
The PBs pub/restaurant in Episode 4 (the Fishermans Tale) is the Ship Inn at Noss Mayo in Newton Ferrers.

Good editing makes at least four different Devon locations appear to be one bug town. The Punch and Judy sequence was filmed at Goodrington just outside Paignton.

reply

I suspect they filmed Hinterland in the Winter to make it look bleaker and more like a Scandinavian drama. It looks a lot gentler in Spring - Summer - Autumn with everything green and all the hillside flowers and berries - as long as you don't mind the rain.

reply

have to google the places =)

I don't know about the location, but the shots from the top of the tower in Episode 1 must have been computer generated (CGI). Look at the sky and the water and you'll see nothing is moving. There's not a wave or breaker to be seen.

reply

As the tower is on the south (English Channel) coast near Fowey, the sea is frequently very calm with no breakers.

reply

Utter Rubbish you frequently get calm seas and extremly slow moving clouds that appear still for hours on end.
You must be a city or town dwelling person!

Thanks for the insulting comment. I made a pretty quiet observation that I thought a scene might be computer-generated and you come back with a snarky response. WOW! You need to get out more or get laid once in a while to get rid of those pent-up frustrations. Good luck!

reply

At one point someone refers to 'grockles' meaning visitors or tourists to Devon, England

reply

Nice, we here in South Wales refer to tourists as 'trogs' as in troglodytes. Some kind of prehistoric man. Seeing as we rely heavily on tourism to buoy up our economy seems somewhat rude really!
