BBC One’s Black Narcissus has had viewers swooning over its dreamy Himalayan mountain landscape since it first started airing on Sunday.
The three-part series, which has been adapted from Rumer Godden’s iconic tale of sexual repression and forbidden love, follows a group of nuns as they set up a branch of their order.
Tonight’s episode will conclude the Gemma Arterton-led drama, with the synopsis teasing a major fallout between Sister Clodagh and Sister Ruth over Mr Dean.
But where did filming take place? We’ve got all the details below.
Where was Black Narcissus filmed?
Filming for the BBC series Narcissus took place last year in Jomsom, Nepal and in the UK at Pinewood Studios, Buckinghamshire.
Jomsom is a village in the Annapurna mountains of Nepal.
Speaking about filming in Nepal, Gemma Arterton told Radio Times: ‘We were so, so lucky that we got to go to Nepal, it took us something like two and a half days to get to this final destination which is called Jomsom.
‘And when you get there, I mean, the journey itself is so fatiguing, and it’s not even close to what the nuns would have experienced themselves, we had planes and cars and whatnot.’
She continued to the publication: ‘The air is really thin and you get altitude sickness but it also kind of makes you feel really alive, and it’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever been, so we were so lucky to be able to see that because it’s huge part of why the nuns kind of unravel, the godliness of the place makes them start to question God.
‘Just to feel that… it’s in the middle of nowhere like there was no phone signal, nothing, and we were up there and it was just magic.’
The remaining scenes were shot at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, which has been the base of a number of huge productions over the years, including the James Bond and Carry On franchise.
The original Black Narcissus movie was filmed there in 1947.
Black Narcissus concludes tonight at 9pm on BBC One and is available for catch-up on BBC iPlayer.
