Tim Ritz has posted a rather wonderful map of British TV locations and settings on Facebook. It was posted in 2016, so there are some omissions (such as The Living and the Dead), but I have just come across it.

Wessex is represented as follows (I haven’t included The Office, as Slough is historically in Buckinghamshire):

Filmed and set in Wessex

  • Being Human (series 1&2)
  • Broadchurch
  • Father Brown
  • Flowery Twats
  • Inspector Morse/Lewis/Endeavour
  • Lark Rise to Candleford
  • Midsomer Murders
  • Skins
  • Teachers

Filmed in Wessex, set elsewhere

  • Downton Abbey

Set in Wessex, filmed elsewhere

  • Brideshead Revisited
  • The Vicar of Dibley

Obviously, this map is not complete. Can you think of any examples that may have been missed out?
