In Pictures: New series of popular drama, Annika, filming in Glasgow
Annika, starring Nicola Walker and Jamie Sives, moves from Oslo to Glasgow
Filming for crime drama Annika takes place in Glasgow on the River Clyde. Nicola Walker (DI Annika Strandhed) and Jamie Sives (DS Michael McAndrews) are seen filming on Glasgow's river Clyde. Annika is based on the hugely successful Radio 4 drama and follows the sharp, witty and enigmatic DI Annika Strandhed, as she heads up a new specialist Marine Homicide Unit. Nicola Walker continues to play DI Annika Strandhed – although the setting has now moved from Norway’s fjiords to the River Clyde. The makers of the drama describe it as "This specialist unit is tasked with investigating the unexplained, sometimes brutal, and seemingly unfathomable murders that wash up in the waterways of Scotland. "Throughout the series, Annika makes the audience her confidante by breaking the fourth wall and sharing her wry observations on the case and her life, as she manages her brilliant yet unconventional team, and her equally brilliant yet complex teenage daughter." Starring alongside Walker will be Jamie Sives as DS Michael McAndrews, Katie Leung as DC Blair Ferguson and Ukweli Roach as DS Tyrone Clarke. Joining them are Kate Dickie as DCI Diane Oban, and Silvie Furneaux as Annika’s daughter, Morgan. The six-part series is being filmed in various locations around the city including Partick, Bellahouston and High Street. The six-part series will air on UKTV's Alibi later this year.
