Also written by Sally Wainwright, Happy Valley again stars Sarah Lancashire, this time as a police sergeant, and both the BBC drama and its leading lady won the major BAFTA award 2017 for series 2. Series 3 is planned. It is totally filmed in the local area with most of the film locations in Halifax and other parts of Calderdale such as Sowerby Bridge, Mytholmroyd and Hebden Bridge. One scene in series 2 featured views from the top of Wainhouse Tower which included Dyer’s Cottage. We were somewhat surprised to see it.
Series 3 is planned to appear on BBC1 towards the end of 2019/start of 2020. See the BBC website for more information.
