Fans of gritty Netflix drama Top Boy may notice some familiar sights in the latest shows as many scenes were filmed in Thanet.
The cult crime series is back on screens for its third season.
Although set in a fictitious housing estate in Hackney called Summerhouse Estate, much of the season was shot in Margate and Ramsgate.
Cast and crew members were spotted at the Lido site, as well as the Plains of Waterloo and other sites in the district last year.
The drama first launched on Channel 4 in 2011 and stars grime artist, Kano and actor, Ashley Walters.
It follows the story of drug dealers Dashane and Sully as they navigate life around the fictional estate in East London.
Despite good reviews the series was canned in 2013 but received a lifeline after a move to Netflix found them a new global audience.
Fortuitously, Canadian rapper, Drake watched the show and soon became an avid fan.
The mega star is now an executive producer of the third series which features ten episodes.
Crews arrived in Northdown Road last September to film at Polish supermarket, Nazsa Biedronka after stints at the Lido and in Ramsgate.
In Cliftonville Avenue the Viking Gallery was used as a 'green room' for crews and the snooker club also shared facilities.
Other scenes were filmed in Hackney and nearby in Dalston and Haggerston.
