Brand new BBC series Wolf has landed in full on BBC iPlayer, gripping viewers with its various twists and turns.


Based on the Jack Caffery novels by Mo Hayder, the thriller revolves around DI Jack Caffery (The Midwich Cuckoos star Ukweli Roach), a police officer who becomes obsessed with the neighbour he believes murdered his 10 year-old brother in the '90s.

Meanwhile, a parallel story follows the Anchor-Ferrers family as they find themselves the victims of a psychopath’s evil games. When the two narratives inevitably collide, a thrilling ride ensues and leads to a dramatic finale.

Ukweli Roach leads the cast of Wolf in the central role of Jack, while major parts are played by Sacha Dhawan, Iwan Rheon, Juliet Stevenson, Owen Teale and more.

The series features some stunning locations, not least the enormous and isolated Anchor-Ferrers house. But just where is the series set and where was it filmed?

Filming on Wolf took place across south Wales in 2022, including in Monmouthshire - where large parts of the series are set. There were also scenes filmed at the Enfys studios in Cardiff.

Dawn Bowden, deputy minister for arts and sport in Wales, visited the set at the time and said: "I'm delighted to get a sneak peek at this production in progress. It really is a production rooted in Wales, making the most of our fabulous Welsh landscapes – and, of course, Welsh talent and crew."

The cast also spoke about filming in the country, with Iwan Rheon, who plays Molina, saying: "It's lovely to be back working in Wales, as always. Obviously I'm Welsh and grew up in Wales, so it has a very dear place in my heart.

"It's been really great to get to use the landscapes here; Wales has quite a wide variety of landscapes, so you can really make it look like anything.

"It’s a really beautiful place to film. I think more and more things are being made here, so the crews are fantastic - great professionals in every department, which is amazing. Wales is just as good as anywhere to film."

Meanwhile, Owen Teale, who plays Oliver Anchor-Ferrers, said: "We were shooting Wolf very near to where I grew up, and it’s utterly amazing to me because I'm of the generation that there wasn't that much filming here when I was young. So becoming an actor meant me leaving Wales. That's not necessarily true, but that's how it felt.

"Now as an actor, I'm asked to come back quite readily to where I grew up and everything you could possibly need is here. The Anchor-Ferrers house, for instance, is a Georgian beauty. I never knew it even existed because it's hidden from the road.

"Wales has got everything you need. It’s naturally got the mountains and the wonderful coastline, some of those locations could look like California or some of the beaches in Australia. They could substitute for anywhere.

"You then have great studios and crew here now, a lot of investment has gone into the industry here in Wales. It’s really exciting and it’s so lovely to come home."
