Where is Two Doors Down filmed?

Most of Two Doors Down is filmed at the BBC's Dumbarton Studios in Glasgow, but some of the show is also filmed in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, Scotland.

In 2019, between series three and four, Two Doors Down was forced to move filming from Bowmont Hill, Bishopbriggs to Hamilton after a stand-off between production staff and a local resident that resulted in the police being called.

A source told the Scottish Sun (opens in new tab) after the incident: "Tensions first started to rise during filming for the second series.

"Alistair [the resident] accused the BBC crew of dumping a load of rubbish from a wheelbarrow into a field at the bottom of the street. He claimed the TV guys said they would return to remove it, but never did."

Following the move and filming of the fourth series, a BBC Scotland spokeswoman told the Daily Record (opens in new tab): "The bulk of Two Doors Down is filmed at Dumbarton Studios. For series four, we have filmed the brief external shots in Hamilton, for various logistical reasons."

She added: "Latimer Crescent is a fictional suburban street so we chose a location which could reflect that, and could also accommodate filming for a week with cast and crew there. The neighbours were very welcoming and the street looks perfect on screen.”

Dumbarton Studios is 18,000 sq ft, and is located within 30 minutes of central Glasgow and 20 minutes from Glasgow Airport. Other productions that are part of Dumbarton Studios include Still Game, Shetland (opens in new tab) and Vigil (opens in new tab).

What street is Two Doors Down filmed on?

The street used for filming Two Doors Down is Avonbrae Crescent in Silvertonhill, Hamilton.

In the show, the street is given the fictional name of Latimer Crescent and is the home of Beth and Eric Baird - whose house is at the centre of the Scottish sitcom - along with their exasperating neighbours.

Will there be a Two Doors Down Christmas Special?

Yes, the BBC has confirmed that there will be a Two Doors Down Christmas Special in 2022.

The BBC described what can be expected from the Christmas Special, saying, "As the snow begins to fall, it’s a welcome break at the coffee shop after some busy Christmas shopping. Christine displays uncharacteristic generosity when she discovers she has more loyalty points on her card than she expected, while Michelle is annoyed that Alan has lost his wallet somewhere in town. Dismayed at the prospect of having to cancel her cards so close to Christmas, she sends him out to look for it again."
