Kent Locations Used: The Historic Dockyard Chatham

The Crimson Field is a 6 part WW1 drama created as part of the BBC’s First World War Centenary Season. It focuses on the story of three new voluntary aid detachment (VAD’s) recruits, Kitty Trevelyan (Oona Chaplin), Flora (Alice St. Clair) and Rosalie Berwick (Marianne Oldham), who have left their old lives behind to volunteer at a field hospital in war torn France. 

When the three new VAD’s arrive at the field hospital in Northern France and begin putting their training into practise, they realise that the reality of volunteering is harsher than they imagined. Feeling under prepared, all of the girls must learn to cope with the traumas that war brings.

Starring Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones, Quantum of Solace), Kevin Doyle (Downton Abbey, Scott and Bailey), Anthony Farrelly (Midsomer Murders, New Tricks), Kerry Fox (Patrick’s Day, Trap for Cinderella), Suranne Jones (Scott and Bailey, Coronation Street), Hermione Norris (Outcasts, Spooks), and Marianne Oldham (Titus, WPC 56).

The Historic Dockyard Chatham was used as the port of Boulogne in Northern France, where the VAD’s disembark before heading to the hospital. HMS Gannet features as the ship and was recently the focus of a £3million restoration project, returning the ship to its former glory.

The Historic Dockyard Chatham is one of Kent’s most popular filming destinations previously hosting productions such as Call the Midwife (2012-2013), Les Miserables (2013) and Sherlock Holmes (2009).

The Crimson Field is next on BBC1 on Sunday 13th April 2014 at 9pm.
