Pictures taken in the New Town square this morning show the acclaimed cast and crew on the set of Guilt, a new BBC drama to be shown on BBC Two and BBC Scotland.

Described by the BBC as a “stylish and contemporary drama with riveting plot twists” the new four-part series will star Line of Duty’s Mark Bonnar and Game of Thrones actor Jamie Sives.

The new drama set in Edinburgh has already began filming, with sets spotted last month in Glasgow’s Merchant City.
