JOHN Simm returns to our screen once again as Detective Superintendent Roy Grace in the third season of ITV's Grace.
Last season's stunning filming locations included the beachy views of Brighton. Here's what to expect in season three.
Where is ITV's Grace filmed?
Brighton Palace Pier
The pier features heavily in the first series and second series.
It can also be seen in many of the promotional pictures for the show.
The pier is a Grade II listed pleasure pier located in the city centre opposite the Old Steine.
Opening in 1899, it was the third pier to be constructed in Brighton after the Royal Suspension Chain Pier and the West Pier, but is now the only one still in operation.

The pier is often used as a filming location and was featured in the gangster thriller Brighton Rock, the comedy Carry On at Your Convenience and the Who's concept album and film Quadrophenia.
The South Downs has been a popular location for the detective series.
It was used in the hillside crime scene where the second body found in Grace Looking Good Dead is Devil's Dyke in season two.
Devil's Dyke is better known for its scenic walking routes. It's managed by the National Trust and, as open countryside, it's easy to visit.

Season two featured an aerial shot of the West Pier, followed by a quick snippet of dialogue from John Simm on Brighton beach.
He appears to have just called in a crime, as emergency tape can also be seen in the shot.
The West Pier is Britain's only Grade one listed pier and was built between 1863-1866.
The third series of Grace began filming in August 2022 in Rottingdean.
Scenes were also shot at St Margaret’s Church, Nevill Road and on Beacon Hill.
