Killing Eve fans were put out of their misery as the BBC show returned for a third season on Monday 13th April. Available to stream on the BBCiPlayer, new episodes will drop every Monday at 6am with the new series also airing on BBC One, beginning last Sunday.
The series has become a stalwart of the borough over the past few years and this series once more brought an abundance of filming to Tower Hamlets.
Tower Hamlets Film Office, managed by The Film Office, facilitated a variety of locations for the latest series. The production filmed scenes on Roman Road (below) offering that typical “East London” feel and in and around the Boundary Estate & Arnold Circus and Boundary Gardens offering the cinematic backdrop of the London’s first council estate & the beautiful 19th century bandstand in Shoreditch.
We manage filming in Tower Hamlets to maximise benefits for the council, its residents and businesses that extend borough wide – not just in the areas that filming takes place – believing its vital to involve and create opportunities for the local community where possible.
We were delighted to arrange valuable on set work experience for our local charity partner Four Corners, a leading training provider committed to promoting greater equality with film and TV. The candidate undertook the position of a location marshall for the day of filming around Shoreditch. We additionally brokered a donation for the local resident association to help fund their community projects and work in the local community. A big thank to the production for working with to facilitate these.
Jacob Hughes-Rodgers, the Film Officer on the job commented “We believe in a holistic approach to film management so its fantastic to be able to give back when a series of this size rolls into town. To keep attracting an acclaimed series like Killing Eve back to the borough vindicates the hard work we put in and our ability to offer the industry the full variety of locations the borough has to offer. We ensure the industry know that Tower Hamlets is a film friendly borough which is why various series more often than not return several times to shoot across our locations. I can’t wait to see the end results when the show airs, and we look forward to hopefully welcoming the production again for the 4th series!”.
