The BBC’s new three-part drama, The Control Room, looks set to have us all gripped and sitting on the edge of our seats from start to finish if the scenes in Paisley filmed yesterday afternoon and last night in town are anything to go by.

A special effects van from Shepperton Studios in London which is part of the Pinewood group was spotted arriving in town first, followed by a host of vans carrying equipment for filming and lighting.

The new drama which comes from Hartswood Films, the production company behind hit series including Sherlock and Dracula sees Iain de Caestecker star as Gabe, an ordinary man who works as an emergency call handler for the Scottish Ambulance Service in Glasgow.

The Control Room follows Gabe as his world is turned upside down one night when he receives a desperate life-and-death call from a woman who appears to know him. As Gabe finds himself under pressure to figure out who she is, he ends up making a decision that threatens to have devastating consequences.

Tune in this Sunday (July 17) to see the first episode of The Control Room, a drama set at the ‘Strathclyde Ambulance Service’ in Glasgow. 

The three-part series follows Gabe, played by Iain De Caestecker, as an emergency call handler. Big thanks to all our staff who supported and provided technical advice to @hartswoodfilms.
