County stars in new TV thriller
Camera crews were on the Isle of Sheppey this week as filming started for a new ITV crime series.
Dark Heart is an emotional six-part thriller written by Chris Lang – whose work includes award-winning drama Unforgotten, Undeniable and A Mother’s Son.
It stars Tom Riley as DI Will Wagstaffe, a man haunted by the murder of his parents when he was 16.
Filming began this month on the highly anticipated new series and crews were seen in Shellness Road, in Leysdown, on Monday.
It is the same location where former Take That star Robbie Williams shot his music video Love My Life in 2016.
Dark Heart is inspired by characters created by novelist Adam Creed, who has written a series of books featuring DI Wagstaffe.
It will be filmed in various locations until May and shown on ITV towards the end of this year.
Tom Riley, who has starred in Doctor Who, Casualty, Monroe and Poirot, will be joined in the series by Peaky Blinders’ Charlotte Riley and Miranda Raison, who was in Murder on the Orient Express.
The new series of Dark Heart follows a pilot run.
