  • The episode was mainly filmed in the village of Craster in Northumberland. However Beadnell (just north of Craster) also features.
  • There is no Ternstone island in Northumberland.
  • Some of the scenes on the island and in the visitors centre were filmed at Souter Lighthouse near Sunderland.
  • The naming of the island is quite interesting. There is a bird called a "Turnstone" which is a wading bird, yet the island here is spelt as Ternstone, a tern being a gull like bird.
  • The island in the filming is on and around the islands of Inner Farne (where national trust assistant rangers live part time) and Brownsman.
