Film crews have once again descended in Hemel Hempstead as a new five-part series is shot in the area.

Army drama Our Girl, which stars former Eastenders actress Lacey Turner as the lead role, is filming scenes in the Hemel Hempstead Hospital site and other areas of the town following a successful one-part debut last year.

The story, which follows army medic Molly’s story against the backdrop of the British Army’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, drew in 6.3 million viewers.

The series is expected to be aired later this year.

Trailers and facilities for the crews are currently set up in Gadebridge Park until filming finishes later this week.

Last October the Hillfield Road hospital was used to film scenes for the BBC’s Silent Witness.

Gadebridge Park itself has been the setting for many small and silver screen productions, including the children’s film Mr Stink.
