Paid for contentITV Shetland returns to Lerwick for more crime drama filming

ON THE second last day of filming scenes for the latest instalment to the popular crime drama series Shetland, the crew will move to the Dowry on Commercial Street, as well as the Gilbert Bain Hospital.

On Thursday (15 June), the Dowry will be closed to the general public until 4pm to allow the filming to take place.

Scenes will also be filmed outside the Gilbert Bain Hospital later the same day between 4 and 7pm and again between 8pm and 10pm.

Location manager Davie Gardner said: “It may be necessary to implement some short term ‘stop/go’ traffic holds on Commercial Street during either this time or our actual filming on ‘the street’, but these will be kept to a minimum and will only last for a few minutes on each occasion.

“Closure points will remain manned at all times and any necessary deliveries to business premises on the street will be managed by our locations personnel there.

“All traffic management requirements have officially been requested from – and been granted by – the SIC Roads Department.

“We have also requested, and again been officially granted, the temporary closure of some of the public parking bays in the surrounding area on the Esplanade, Lerwick. These are marked on the attached map. Please note that all disabled parking bays will remain open and available throughout.”

With regards to the filming at the hospital, Gardner added that all access to the hospital building would remain as normal.

“Some very temporary ‘stop/go’ vehicle and pedestrian ‘holds’ may be necessary from time to time while we are actually filming, but these will be kept to an absolute minimum and only last for a few minutes on each occasion. Emergency response will be as normal of course,” he said.

“Apologies in the meantime for any disruption or inconvenience this may cause.”
