Channel 5’s new drama The Drowning got us hooked after arriving on our screens on Monday night – leaving us with all kinds of burning questions.
The programme follows a grief-stricken mother (Jill Halfpenny) who becomes convinced that her son Tom has mysteriously reappeared after being presumed dead for nine years.
The Drowning sees her take more drastic and reckless steps to get closer to teenager Daniel, whom she believes is her own boy.
There’s a stellar cast to look out for, including EastEnders star and Strictly Come Dancing winner Jill. The show also features Rupert Penry-Jones, Deborah Findlay and Jonas Armstrong.
There are some impressive landscape shots and incredible houses featured on the drama, but where is is set?
Here’s everything you need to know.
Where is Channel 5 drama The Drowning set?
While it’s unspecified exactly where The Drowning is set, the show itself was filmed in Dublin.
Most of the filming took place just before the pandemic arrived in 2020, which meant that the programme didn’t have to follow social-distancing rules while shooting.
Speaking to the Express, actor Jonas said that he filmed part of the series in Lough Dan, spending time in freezing cold water on the shoot.
He said: ‘We were down at Lough Dan, a beautiful expanse of water. This was scheduled to be filmed in March but because of lockdown it was moved to August which was a kind of blessing in a way.
‘On camera, it looked really dramatic, it was great, but it was cold even for August.’
The Drowning continues this evening at 9pm on Channel 5
