The Sandman

It’s been a 30 year wait for a TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Sandman’, but the Netflix show has had critics drooling, with the Guardian saying the director had created “2022’s single greatest TV drama.”

Episode 8 of the dark and engrossing drama features Lincoln’s Inn Fields, in the FilmFixer London borough of Camden.

Look out for the legal landmark In a sequence that begins 30 minutes in. The character Rose Walker, who is a Dream Vortex, encounters the Sandman, has a discussion with him about her ability to enter the dreams of others and then crosses the road and enters the park itself.

The street and park double for an American street, and production briefly stopped traffic and pedestrians for up to three minutes while the camera was rolling. The sequence also featured a nude scene which was fully shielded from members of the public, with the crew using mobile screens on the road and multiple screens in the park to guarantee privacy.

Location marshalls were positioned around the park to answer any questions from the public about the shoot.

The production also filmed multiple scenes inside the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn which was used as the unit base.
