The Jetty BBC One: Yorkshire filming locations for the BBC thriller series starring Emmerdale and Doctor Who actor Jenna Coleman and the main cast in the show

A new BBC thriller series The Jetty starring Jenna Coleman has been filmed in these areas in Yorkshire.

The Jetty is as much of a coming-of-age story as a detective thriller as it addresses major questions about sexual morality, identity and memory, in the blind spots that Me Too has left behind.

The BBC has released a first look preview at Jenna Coleman in the highly anticipated new crime drama from writer Cat Jones and producers Firebird Pictures, for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
