Filming begins on McDonald & Dodds S3

McDonald * Dodds 3 Filming gets underway in and around Bath and Bristol this week on McDonald & Dodds S3, with the production base at the Bottle Yard Studios, Bristol. 

The series comes from Mammoth Screen and creator Robert Murphy, and stars Jason Watkins and Tala Gouveia. The third series, as with the second, comprises three feature-length episodes and will shoot for around 14 weeks. 

The previous series was filmed in September last year, and used a wide variety of Bath and Bristol locations.

Wen the third series was officially greenlit, Watkins said of the news: “I’m delighted to be returning to Bath for the third series of McDonald & Dodds… I look forward to filming in the beautiful city of Bath and to Dodds solving more puzzles with Lauren McDonald. I’m bracing myself for more chips in butter!”

Creator Murphy added: “It's a real privilege to for me to return to Bath to re-engage with the world of McDonald & Dodds and our other regular characters.”

The West Country’s profile as a film-friendly destination was further raised when it provided several backdrops for the Netflix Regency ratings-hit, Bridgerton.
