ICE Film furnished camera systems for season 2 of BBC One’s ongoing mystery drama Keeping Faith, airing on Thursday nights.

Keeping Faith in Welsh Drama

Series 1 of the show was filmed in both Welsh and English and aired on S4C at the end of 2017 with great success. In early 2018 it aired on BBC Wales and averaged 300,000 viewers per episode, becoming the most popular show on the network for over 25 years. The show carries the flag for Welsh culture and scenery whilst also providing a thrilling narrative.

The Guardian have stated that it does for Caemarthenshire (where most of it was filmed) what Broadchurch did for Dorset, highlighting the significance of the Welsh setting – “it looks real and brilliant and Welsh”.

Season 1 Recap

The story revolves around Lawyer and mother Faith Howells (Eve Myles) who’s life is turned upside down with the disappearance of her husband Evan (Bradley Freegard). The first season showed Faith’s search for answers during which she and those helping her end up in the firing line of the law.

The last episode offers some answers as it becomes clear that Evan’s disappearance is far more complex than any of us first thought.
