Here's what the cast had to say about working in Dorset...
David Tennant (DI Alec Hardy)
" I will miss our trips to the coast. West Bay and the Jurassic coastline I will definitely need to visit because there is something very special about that place and it is an extraordinary part of the country. "
Julie Hesmondhalgh (Trish Winterman
"Well it was absolutely wonderful being down in Dorset, really beautiful and I had a period of time in the summer when I was down a lot and I had a little caravan on the beach. I used to walk over the cliffs to West Bay to work in the morning and in the middle of summer it was absolutely lovely. It doesn't get any better than that!"
Andrew Buchan (Mark Latimer)
" I think I would take a holiday in Dorset every 10 minutes if I could. It is a spectacular part of the world. From the scenery to the people, the whole package down there is spot on. The staff at the hotels we stayed in were the nicest I have ever come across and they made the whole thing a complete joy so yeah, I would love to go back there at the earliest opportunity."
