Location & Resources

Filmed in and around Birmingham and at The BBC Drama Village in Selly Oak


BBC DOCTORS is predominantly filmed on location, with a very tight turn around and, as such, we have had recourse to use Film Birmingham on practically a daily basis. Without their professionalism, understanding and efficiency, we would not be able to achieve the high level of quality output that is expected of us.

Their approach to working closely with our production, without the "them and us" attitude, makes filming in the West Midlands an attractive proposition and we see them very much as part of the team.
