In pictures: When the hit TV show Casualty filmed a major stunt at Peterborough’s Nene Valley Railway
In 2003, the popular BBC medical drama Casualty was filmed on location in Peterborough for a “spectacular” stunt scene.
The show’s film crews were filming on the Nene Valley Railway and speaking to the Peterborough Telegraph at the time, series producer Oliver Kent was careful not to say too much: âIt was a shoot involving a couple of people. ‘teens and a train – and he being casualty, it’s safe to say it’s not going well, âhe said.
“It’s a big, spectacular storyline that we’ve built.”
He added, âNene Valley is the best place for that because there aren’t a lot of places you can film that close to the slopes. We toured here a few years ago, so we know that very well.
Casualty’s Series 18 began as a two-part episode that aired over consecutive days and featured a double train crash.
The stunt was filmed entirely at Nene Valley Railway for 24 days and involved two production teams and 1,470 supporting artists.
