Hull’s Old Town has been transformed this week as filming begins on the new Netflix crime-thriller Bodies. Set in London, the new thriller is an adaptation of Si Spencer’s novel of the same name and will follow detectives from four different eras, all investigating the same murder.
The eight-part series has begun filming in Hull’s Old Town and people have been popping down to visit the set.
One Twitter user Jenni Fletcher took to Twitter to share her images writing: “One of the best things about #Hull Old Town is that you never know which film set you’re going to wander into. Today is #Bodies!”
The images show doorways filled with old sandbags and wooden supports on the buildings giving the effect of a WW1 era.
There is also a classic red phone box that also has tape on the windows with old fashion posters and newspaper clippings from the era plastered on the walls. Veg boxes full of fresh veg can be seen on the side of the road as well.
The images really showcase Old Town’s charm and beautifully preserved streets, making it easy to see why TV and film crews continue to use the area as a backdrop to their productions.
The new Netflix series is set to film in a range of spots across Yorkshire including Leeds, Bradford, Grimsby and Rotherham, according to a casting call.
Other people have been taking to Twitter so share their images of the transformation which you can check out below:
The Old Town has proven quite popular as a filming location with crews from Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things, filming Enola Holmes 2 and also Amando Iannucci’s The Personal History of David Copperfield.
Screen Yorkshire’s production liaison and development manager, Chris Hordley said: “Hull’s Old Town is a true gem in Yorkshire and the Humber’s filming location portfolio.
“Its beautifully preserved period streets and historic architecture are a big pull for the producers and directors we work with.
