Prisoners Wives (BBC)

Recommended Posts

Just watching episode one and recognised the old "Witness works" on Milton Street soon to be followed by a shot of the Supertram down town. A few panoramic shots of the city and other location shots that I don't recognise.

Just watched on iPlayer, not a bad story line, thanks Mick.

Can our members name any of the film locations ?

There was an article in the Telegraph last week talking about locations. Apparently the prison interiors are really King Ecgbert's School!

Did I see a tower block in it at one point that looked like one of the ones that used to stand on the Norfolk Park Estate?

There is only one of these left in Sheffield now.

This one (second one down) is Hillsborough Corner just before the Wetherspoons on the left and across form Morrisons

The tower blocks I think are the ones on Martin Street. I can't seem to find where the picture was taken from though.

The one above that is (obviously) Washington Road flats. Probably from here

The night shot with the RH Hospital in the background is of Hoyle Street/Netherthorpe Road,

probably taken from Pye Bank.

Don't you just love it when a new series shot in Sheffield comes on. I spend more time waiting for location shots than following what is happening lol

Could have been vox.

The tower block I was refering to (only one left in Sheffield) is on Exeter Drive, - not far away from your location and at 15 floors high tall enough to be seen.

Just watched it on iPlayer. The housing estate of the main character is up at Lodge Moor, the old hospital site. I remember seeing a Film Service Bus up by the Sportsman last summer and wondered what might have been filmed up there. I thought it might be something on the playing firelds but suspect it was to do with this series.

So where is the drug dealers house then - Whirlow?

Yes, that's the one.

Enjoyed last night's episode, like our new hospital, the Ranmoor General :)

Apparently they were seen filming on Whirlow Park Rd as well, so perhaps that is the house used for Harriet which we have yet to see.

So where did she pawn the ring?

Moorfoot featured clearly in this weeks episode, suposedly an interview room in Leicester but the car park entrance on Young St followed by the car pulling up in the covered area beside reception were easy for me to recognise. The interview room itself was in Moorfoot as well, W409. My first ever full time job was in N716 and later in W842.

Someone on Sheffield forum suggested the old Sharrow primary ?

Internal filming could have been at another location.
