A film crew turned the clock back to re-create early 19th century Edinburgh as the city was again turned into a set for a new television series.
Belgravia is a forthcoming historical period drama based on the novel of the same by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes.
Filming began at the weekend in the courtyard of Edinburgh City Chambers which was sealed off behind giant screens. Moray Place is one of a number of New Town streets being used for filming, as well as Hopetoun House in West Lothian and Manderston country house in the Borders.
The six-part series, a co-production between ITV and American cable network Epix, is written by Fellowes and directed by John Alexander. The cast includes Tom Wilkinson, Philip Glenister, Alice Eve, Harriet Walter and Tamsin Grieg.
Game Of Thrones actress Tara Fitzgerald, as well as Ella Purnell, Richard Goulding, James Fleet, Adam James, Paul Ritter and Saskia Reeves have also been cast in the drama. Filming will also take place in London, Bath, Northumberland and the home counties.
It is produced by London-based Carnival Films which has produced television series for all the major UK networks including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, and Sky, as well as international broadcasters including PBS, A&E, HBO and NBC. Producer Colin Wratten’s recent credits include hit TV show Killing Eve.
Belgravia begins in 1815 at the Duchess of Richmond’s ball, which was held in Brussels for the Duke of Wellington on the eve of the Battle of Quatre Bras, two days before the Battle of Waterloo.
