Hinterland/Y Gwyll has been a huge success for S4C and BBC Wales, and has also garnered a huge following overseas. It’s fairly unique in the fact that it’s filmed back-to-back in the Welsh language and then the English language, which has always seemed to me to be a tremendous undertaking. There’s no word on whether there will be a fourth series of Hinterland/Y Gwyll, but the BBC has announced that a new Welsh crime drama has begun filming, once again in both Welsh and English languages.
Filmed back-to-back in Welsh and English, Hidden/Craith is an eight-part series that tells the story of detective DI Cadi John who returns to north Wales to care for her ailing father. However, when the body of a young woman is found in a local river, Cadi’s world – and the world around her – is changed forever.
Writers on the series include co-creator Mark Andrew, award-winning Welsh novelist Caryl Lewis and BAFTA Cymru-winning writer Jeff Murphy.
Cast members on the series include Sian Reese-William, Rhodri Meilir, Gwyneth Keyworth and Sion Alun Davies.
Hidden/Craith joins Requiem and Keeping Faith/Un Bore Mercher on the BBC Wales/S4C slate of thrillers, and will premiere next year.
