Designer Creates Map Of TV Shows Set In London

Ever wanted to know where your favourite TV show is set or filmed? In early 2016, graphic designer Tim Ritz put together a map pinpointing the locations of popular shows like Call the Midwife, Sherlock, Peep Show and Green Wing — and it's rather lovely.

As you can see from the bit of Broadchurch that's creeping into London (the capital's detail is shown in an inset), Tim's done the whole country. If you're less London-centric than us and want to explore the whole thing, you should head over to Tim's website. Or buy a print to hang on your wall.

Tim's work reminded us of a project we did a few years ago, of mapping where radio and TV comedy shows were set in London. That map is below; you can read how we came up with it over here.

Broadchurch was also filmed in my local Co-Op, now an Aldi, and I watched it being filmed


Err what about Minder and The Sweeney?

Peter Kennedy

Yes, where's the Sweeney, Minder, Only Fools etc. etc. Must be a kid who put this together

John Beecham

Very sloppy research. Eastenders is made in Borehamwood/Elstree. Very definitely not Watford.


Good Life used Northwood for exterior shots
