Filming has continued this month on a new six-part ‘murder mystery’ drama series set in Pembroke Dock.

‘Cleddau/The One That Got Away’ - brings together a top-class team of Welsh crime drama talent.

The series is written by Catherine Tregenna (The Bench, Law & Order UK, Lewis and DCI Banks) and stars Elen Rhys (The Mallorca Files, Craith/Hidden), Richard Harrington (Y Gwyll/Hinterland) and Rhian Blythe (Y Golau/The Light in the Hall, Craith/Hidden).

All six episodes are directed by Carmarthenshire-born Sion Ifan (Y Gyfrinach/The Secret).

With twists and turns leading to a heart-stopping finale, producers say the show is a forensic examination of a town, a killer and a relationship, past and present.

The plot tells of a shocking murder of a nurse that opens old wounds in a small-town community, throwing a historic conviction into doubt, raising the horrifying prospect of a copycat killer and reuniting two former lovers tasked with finding the killer.

The series from BlackLight Television (a Banijay UK company) in collaboration with Banijay Rights, is being filmed in Welsh for S4C for broadcast in late 2024, while an English language version will also be produced for international audiences.

Local Senedd Member for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire Sam Kurtz caught up with some of the filming in the town this month, stating: “Lots of police activity on Front Street, Pembroke Dock yesterday morning...but don't panic, it's nothing to worry about!

“The cast and crew of Cleddau have been in South Pembrokeshire the last few weeks as they film this new, six-part, crime drama series.

Writer, Catherine Treganna said: “I'm so excited to create and write my own series and share it with S4C audiences as that's where my television career began.

S4C Drama Commissioner Gwenllian Gravelle said: “We can’t wait for our viewers to watch this tense, gripping crime thriller which never once loses momentum. With a stellar Welsh cast and a fabulous location, it’s going to be a real treat.”
