Where was Vigil series 2 filmed, where is the BBC drama set and is Wudyan a real place?

The Vigil series 2 filming locations and setting likely sparked some curiosity as DCI Amy Silva and DI Kirsten Longacre took on a high stakes case with huge international implications.

The choice of filming locations and setting can often enhance the atmospheric nature of thrillers, adding to their evocative storytelling. Because of this, many fans might have been left wondering where Vigil series 2 was filmed, especially since there had been a major change to the crime drama’s setting between series 1 and 2. Making its triumphant return two years after the series 1 Vigil finale, the second instalment saw DCI Amy Silva going a little further afield. 

Once the investigation was in full swing, the setting became more varied and it might not have come as a surprise to some fans that the filming locations weren’t necessarily the same as the places they’re standing in for.
