Roadkill is here but where was it filmed? Let’s highlight the filming location as audiences flock to check out this exciting BBC series.
The pandemic has been stressful for a wealth of reasons and obviously, some are far more of a concern than others.
Many have found ways to try and enjoy themselves despite the ongoing situation, whether that be through more exercise, reading, cooking or more.
On the other hand, there’s always TV.
Our screens have always offered us golden opportunities of escapism and so far this year we’ve still been able to tuck into some great telly, despite many productions facing temporary shutdown.
One thing we’ve all noticed though is the onslaught of repeated viewing.
Indeed, the BBC has rolled out a number of familiar titles over recent months to fulfil the hours of programming which make up a day.
Fortunately, a new series has arrived with Roadkill but where was it filmed?
Roadkill: Where was it filmed?
- The 2020 BBC One series Roadkill was filmed in London.
While productions sometimes shoot in other cities to create the illusion they’re shot in another, this isn’t the case with Roadkill.
The Knowledge reported that filming commenced in the English capital on Monday, October 28th 2019.
Written by David Hare, the four-part political-thriller series centres on Peter Laurence, a politician played by Hugh Laurie (House), chronicling his life as it spirals into chaos.
Hugh is joined by a cast including the likes of Helen McCrory (Peaky Blinders), Sidse Babett Knudsen (Westworld), Saskia Reeves (Us) and more.
David Hare on working with Hugh Laurie
As highlighted by The Knowledge, David commented on his collaboration with Hugh, expressing: “I first worked with Hugh Laurie in 1987 when he set off on his riveting change of direction from adroit comedian to commanding dramatic actor. I can’t wait to see him embody the fictional future of the Conservative party in Roadkill.”
The BBC also offers some insight with David’s introduction to the series, which includes the following:
“In Roadkill, I wanted to ask what happens when you put ideals of freedom and personal responsibility above all other virtues. I was also interested in the effect of believing that every one of us is alone responsible for the destiny and progress of our own lives. But to inquire into these questions, it was essential to me to invent.”
He added: “I wanted to imagine what it would be like if a Conservative politician, naturally gifted with a mix of charm, intelligence, charisma and high humour, managed to find his path from a working-class household in Croydon right into the heart of Westminster.”
